Week in Review – March 15, 2015

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.

Training

Week Ending March 15, 2015

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!

New Gear

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 trailsĀ 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.

Race

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!
