Following the plan: weekly rundown

I finally finalized and posted my Ridge Run training plan…eh, “plan” last week. So far (y’know, a whole week) I’ve followed it pretty exactly. Go me.


3.3 miles with a wee bit of speedwork (1-2-3-2-1 min ladder w/ equal rest). I’m not focusing on speed for obvious reasons, but speedwork is good for hills (and vice versa). (Do I have enough parentheses in this paragraph yet?)


Strength workout at home – I finally decided for sure to pass on the summer gym membership.


2 miles/one M lap. I planned on two laps, but my hands were freezing by the time I got to the top because it was raining and windy and I forgot gloves…at least I remembered my rain jacket. My hands actually warmed up considerably on the way down because the ‘easy’ trail is less exposed to the wind, but I called it a day anyway.

Shortly after I got home…yes, that’s snow.


15.1 miles. I ran this on a trail with a very gradual incline, because after all the rain the two days before it was the only place I could think of that probably wouldn’t be horribly muddy. So even though it was 3 miles longer than last weekend’s run, it ended up taking about the same amount of time.

So it was still a little muddy.


4.6 neighborhood miles. I wasn’t sore at all from yesterday, but I was too tired to feel like driving anywhere to run.

Total: 25 miles, 2,130 feet elevation gain.

    I can’t believe you had snow! This spring weather has been crazy. Nice week of running. Those trails are beautiful!

    I think that 2019 has been the weirdest year for weather. Who would think of getting snow in late June!

      you can get snow any month here! it doesn’t stick around in summer though.

  4. You got in a nice mileage week! Dare I say I am jealous of your cooler weather. Thanks for linking up

      I was also jealous of it this week…

  5. Snow??? Great strong week and lovely to see those long runs getting longer, well done!

      Oh yes, snow is never entirely out of the question here!

  6. The views where you live are so amazing — but I don’t think that I would be able to handle all the snow in Winter. I’d want to hibernate — it’s bad enough here!

      The views are also amazing with all the snow though 😉

  7. So that picture where you mention it is muddy, what’s on the left of it? Umm, if you slip on the mud will you slide down and and up where?

    Snow at this time? That is crazy!

      It’s a short drop off, but also a really wide trail! not really any danger of sliding down.
