5K/10K Training Tuesday: Week Nine

Monday: 2.5 miles
Tuesday: Zumba
Wednesday: Speedwork
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Moving
Saturday: Moving
Sunday: Moving/Unpacking

When I first was notified I was a Cleveland Ambassador again and was thinking about what race to do, I briefly considered the half-marathon but opted instead to do the 5K/10K Challenge. Then, when I got the book deal I was really glad I decided on the shorter race because all of my free time was going to be going towards writing.

This week was another situation where I was glad I went for the shorter distance because I had to sacrifice both training and writing to pack up my apartment and move! Between packing up my apartment and taking it to new house, both Friday and Saturday, I ended up with over 11,000 steps both days!

On Wednesday I also kept up my speedwork with another round of the Mona Fartlek and showed some improvement over last week!

I’m excited to start running in my new neighborhood — there are lots of sidewalks and a really nice park not too far away. Hopefully the weather will hold out: we seem to be experiencing a leftover winter this week but luckily the YMCA is only about 5 minutes away now.

This week my friend Stephani is giving away a free race entry to a single Cleveland Marathon distance so go check out her blog and enter!

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus
