February came and went, I cannot believe it is already March. Today I am joining Holly from HoHo Runs and Tricia from MissSippiPiddlin for the Weekly Wrap. While I was on my little hiatus, I kept drafts of my training recaps, but never hit publish since they were unfinished (note form, not all pics uploaded). My Gate River Run 15K Training Week 3-9 posts are now live (separate posts).

Monday 2/29 – Rest Day
Tuesday 3/1 – Rest Day
Wednesday 3/2 – Rest Day
Another long day, but I did take a break and visited the Wonder Exhibit at the Renwick Gallery.
You have probably seen dozens of pictures of the exhibit on Instagram. Here is an article from the Washington Post “The Renwick is suddently Instagram famous. But what about the art?”
Stalagmites of index cards.
Bug art – interesting!
Thursday 3/3 – 5 miles | 12:19 min/mile
Average 12:19 min/mile (12:38 , 12:15 , 12:23 , 12:05 , 12:18) for 5 miles followed by 10 x 100 meter strides. One word: Heavy.
Friday 3/4 – 6 miles | 12:01 min/mile + 45 minutes cycling
What what morning progression run. Average 12:01 min/mile (12:43, 12:25, 12:18, 11:57, 11:38, 11:06). Glad I was able to negative split it, but was bummed I did not get into the 10:30-11:00 – there is always next time. I was getting out of breath towards the end.
Later in the evening I met my friend Emily for a 45 minute Janet vs. Michael Jackson FlyWheel class. We went to elementary/middle school with the instructor (Jackie) so it was fun to catch up with her and her sister. Post spin noms, sushi!
Saturday 3/5 – 4 miles | 12:35 min/mile
For some reason I got up insanely early (6:00 AM) for a non-summer month and was ready to run. I went on my easy 4 mile run in my neighborhood average 12:35 min/mile (12:40 , 12:38 , 12:47 , 12:40).
Sunday 3/6 – 3.8 miles | 12:17 min/mile
I had 10 miles schedule for today. Since I was signed up for the St. Pats Day Double the plan was to run .7 miles as warm up + 5K + 10K. I woke up that morning with some lady stomach cramps, but figured running would help (it usually does). Long story short (it will go in the recap) I finished the 5K, but my stomach was aching the entire time. I opted out of the 10K and went home…bummer since the weather was perfect!
Watch shot! Average 12:17min/mile (12:01, 12:18, 12:34). Note – don’t worry the 235 screen does not have a cloudy appearance. I purchased a screen protector and I could not push out all the air bubbles.
The remainder of the day was spent watching the new season of House of Cards with Cliff.
Weekly Total: 18.8 miles | 4 Runs
Year to Date: 160.76 miles | 32 Runs
