This week was a great week of running. The weather was nice and warm and I got to run outside all week! Spring time in Wisconsin is so exciting! Here is the break down of how the week went.
This week I ran a total of 27.42 miles in 4:06:56. This week was my first official week of training for the Green Bay Cellcom Half Marathon coming up on May 17th, 2015. On Wednesday, I ran my first intervals in quite a while. They were a good workout, but not terribly difficult, so that is good. I know that they start to get harder as time goes on, so that is good. On Friday I also got to get out and do a trail run for the first time in a long time. It was pretty sloppy and muddy, but I loved it!
This brings me to the new gear of the week. The Saucony Peregrine 5. They are a trail shoe that I have been looking at for a while. I needed a new pair of trails shoes since my old ones were worn out, and the other ones I ordered won’t come in until June. I think they will rotate with the new ones quite nicely. They have a nice aggressive lug. The trails were very slippery and wet, and I felt like I had good traction the whole time. The trails have some steep climbs and descents (for around here any way). I did have to run on the road a bit and I did some hill work in them and they are very comfortable. I will have a full review when I get more miles on them.
At the last minute this week, I decided to sign up for a 5K. You can read the ARR (After Race Report) here. I won 3rd in the 35-39 Men’s Age Group, which I was not expecting. I did set a PR and had a great time!
That is it for this week, hope everyone gets a chance to get out and run!
