Last week culminated with the Griffith Park 8k Trail Race. You can read my recap of that race here. Overall, it was a pretty easy week running wise. After my long run last weekend, on very technical trail at Griffith Park, my ankle became a bit sore. Although mild, it bothered me for most of the week. To play it safe in preparation for my race, I didn’t push my mileage or pace and aimed to keep it on the lighter side. I think my strategy paid off.

This week, I’m hoping to get back to business and get back on track with my training. I missed my long run this past weekend due to yesterday’s race and will miss next weekend too. (Perhaps the weekend after that as well. Ah, summer training… but YAY for summer fun and adventures!) at any rate, in order to stay on course, I’ll need to get some longer runs done ahead of the weekend for the next couple of weeks. Fortunately, we’re talking 13-14 miles and since I work afternoons, I’ll have plenty of time to get them done.

My fancy-schmancy training plan.

My ankle is feeling a lot better and although I was exhausted post-race yesterday, I’m looking forward to training and breaking out of the comfort zone I found myself in while taking it easy last week.

Happy running, friends!
