Last week I started gearing up for a spring 5k. All this really means is I started adjusting some of my workouts to focus on the 5k distance. I know I won’t be in shape for PR, but I would like to get a little bit of speed back before the race.
Most of my runs this week were completed on the treadmill, but did get outside for Saturday’s run. I even got in a hill workout! More about that tomorrow.
Last Week’s Workouts:
Monday: 3 miles with intervals
Tuesday: 20 minutes spin bike, Strength Training
Wednesday: 3.1 miles hill workout
Thursday: Strength Training, Mobility
Friday: 3 miles easy
Saturday: 7 miles easy
It was so nice to run outside and see the sunrise for the first time in a while!
We made a quick trip to NY on Saturday for a wedding. Luckily the snow didn’t impact our travels too much but it was pretty messy coming back to the hotel from the wedding. Luckily we took an Uber and had a NY driver who was used to driving in the snow. By the time we drove back to MD on Sunday morning most of the snow was melted.
It felt good to follow a structured plan this week! I’m planning to follow a similar schedule for the next few weeks while adjusting my speed and hill workouts based on how I’m progressing. I have my eye on a specific race, but I’m willing to choose a different one if I don’t feel like I will be ready by then.

How were your workouts last week?
Do you adjust your workouts when you have a short race like a 5k coming up?
For those on the east coast, was your weekend impacted by the snow?
