Week in Review 3/28 - 4/3 (Marathon Training)

Total Weekly Mileage: 60.85 running, 64.01 with hiking.

Rest or Crosstrain
Actual: Rest

Easy 8
Actual: 8:28 in the morning before work with Loki, 9:56 pace. We also added another 2.15 in after work because I had plans for Saturday and wasn't sure I'd get all of my miles in.

11 with 8 x 1:00 @ 7:20 pace, 2:00 recovery
 Actual: 11.06 total, 9:26 pace. I ended up getting rained on starting at mile 4 and continuing until about mile 9 - right when I was doing the speedwork - so this was tough. I really wasn't paying that close of attention to making sure these were on pace, so they were kind of a mess: 7:07, 7:33, 7:31, 7:15, 7:39, 7:12, 7:11, 7:08.
Before the rain started, I noticed the trees are starting to bloom!

Easy 7
Actual: 8.26 trail run at the lunch loops with Loki and the local run club, 11:02 pace.

Easy 8
Actual: 8.03 early morning run, 10:18 pace.

Long 20
Actual: I moved my weekend schedule around so that Scott and I could go up to Ouray for some exploring / hiking in the area on Saturday. We ended up hiking a little over 3 miles, then I ran an additional 3 when we got home for about 6 total.

Easy 8
Actual: Got my Long Run in on Sunday instead - 20.02 miles, 10:10 pace. This was a tough one for me mentally. I'm not really sure why, possibly a combination of a chest cough I've been dealing with, lack of fueling, and choosing a hilly route. Needless to say, I was GLAD when it was done! 


  1. Wow that's a lot of miles in one week! All of your pics look so beautiful.

    2. Yeah...only because I'm in peak marathon training right now... I can't wait to drop it down a notch in a few weeks!


Flattop Mountain & Hallett Peak

I've been wanting to hike to the top of Hallett Peak ever since I found out it was the gorgeous mountain towering above Dream and Emera...
