Tuesdays on the Run: Spring Training Update

Erika @ MCM Mama Runs hosts Tuesdays on the Run with April @ Run the great wide somewhere and Patty @ My no-guilt life!

This week’s topic is: Spring Training Update

My training this Spring is going to be pretty informal:

  • Mondays – FRW training group run – usually 3 miles with some speed work mixed in
  • Tuesdays – tennis
  • Wednesdays and/or Thursday – 3-4 easy miles
  • Fridays – gym – upper body machines
  • Saturday or Sunday – a race with some extra miles for a longish run

I am currently tapering for my half marathon on Saturday!!


half #12 – along the ocean – yay & a visit to a college friend in NJ

Then I have a recovery 5K before I start ramping up the miles for another half marathon.

enjoyed this one last year too – hopefully there will be cherry blossoms this year

The training begins with a 15K along the river.


yes, that’s me on the website – I ran the 10K last year – this year I signed up for the 15K

This is a weekday training run and a 5k.


May 7, 2015 6:30 pm…wasn’t planning on this but a FB friend started a team for this 5k and…

I continue my training with another 15K on my birthday.


May 9, 2015 – running the 15K, a new race for me

then a fun 5K to celebrate Mother’s Day.


GOTR event – I am volunteering in this program and will be doing it with my new buddy – otherwise I would run this for the 2nd time

Hopefully, my legs will be ready for this hilly half. I am excited to visit Burlington, VT.

May 24, 2015 – I am doing the relay with AJH – my 13th half

I will be recovering with my favorite 5K


This is the only race that I have never missed – so this will be my 8th time.

And finally another half marathon about 1 1/2 hours south.

Half Marathon – June 13, 2105 – my 14th half – get to see the new bridge over the Hudson

I will be traveling to Denver, CO for a conference and get back the night before for this hilly 10 mile race.

June 20, 2015 – my 2nd year – loved it last year – this year I will be jetlagged.

Happy Running?  How’s your spring training going?  Which race(s) are you training for?

  1. good luck in the half! i’ll be in NJ on Saturday too, but for a girlfriend’s wedding, not a race. 🙂 look forward to reading your recap. hope you get good weather. i have a few girlfriends who have run the VT City full marathon and heard it’s so hilly but a beautiful course.


  2. We both have a half this weekend but I’m betting you will get the better weather. It looks like a rainy day for me! I usually do a pancake 5k on Mothers Day weekend that is a lot of fun.
