Weekly Rollup 6-12 November

Training Rollup:

Monday: Easy afternoon run. It was cold in the morning and my bed was too warm and comfy… Not a good excuse, but it was the truth. Got out in the afternoon and had a really enjoyable run (still a little cold…). 4.16 miles @ 147 avg HR.

Tuesday: PRT session with my study group. Focus of the day was running, so we conducted a sprint workout. Looked like this:

Preparation Drill (10 reps) + Hip Stability Drill Military Movement Drill

30/60s (30 second sprint / 60 second recovery) x 10 sets+ 300 Yard Shuttle Sprint

(Let’s be honest… the shuttle sprint was more like a shuttle jog…)

Recovery Drill

Following the workout, I had a little extra time, so I did another set of 10 30/60s on my own… Ended up being about 2.5 miles total

Wednesday: Easy 3 miler in the morning (29 degrees… brrr) and the following PRT work out in the afternoon with my study group:

Preparation Drill (10 reps) + 4 for the Core + Conditioning Drill #1(2x 5 reps) + Climbing Drill #1 (2x 5 reps) + PU and SU Drill (2x 45 seconds)+ Recovery Drill

Thursday: Morning threshold/tempo pace 5k on my “flat” route.

Friday: Easy 4.2ish miler. I needed to get out and get some fresh air… but BRRR it was cold. This was the first time I had to actually watch for ICE as I was running. Does this mean winter is finally coming to Kansas City?!


Saturday: Impromptu rest day. I had a TON of homework, reading, etc to catch up on so I skipped my planned long run.

Sunday: Another impromptu rest day. After Mass, I had an intense migraine, so I ended up just closing myself into a dark room until it passed… 6 hours later, I realized that it wasn’t going to go away and my run just wasn’t going to happen.

Weekly Total (according to Garmin): 18.69 miles

This week was another crappy one! I feel like I have balance with school / working out, but the past (and next!) few weeks are sort of like finals week- all the papers, test, practical exercises, etc are approaching the due date and it is a mad rush to get everything done!



I’m linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin this week. Help spread the love and see what others are up to by visiting their pages!

  1. I’ve always been a morning runner. But since it’s turned cooler, I’m having a hard time getting out of my warm bed and am learning to enjoy those afternoon runs. I hope you get through the next few weeks without too much stress and can enjoy your holiday break. Thanks for linking!
