Running week of March 21-27

So this week was to get in some different running locations and work on trails to get ready for Battlefrog in May.  The new trails in Fort Sheridan are absolutely perfect for it with just enough mud to make it fun.  Each lap is right about 2 miles and it’s about as scenic as it gets.  I remember growing up there and playing golf on the old course.  It’s changed completely since the course closed many years ago but the scenery of trails, trees, and bluffs are just beautiful.  I will definitely be frequenting this locale for morning runs a lot in the near future.  Speedwork was also something I’ve been dedicating my training too.  I think I’ve become faster in the shorter runs (@ 5 milers) but hope to continue the progress into my 6+ mile runs.  Next week is my first half marathon of the season and I’m hoping to PR with a sub 2 hour run.

  1. I find what you said about speedwork to be so true for me, too! I think it has helped me get faster with shorter runs so much, but as soon as I get into longer running, it seems like I am not improving. I may just be impatient and need to let the speed work do it’s think and over time, I’m sure i’ll see results, but sometimes it’s frustrating because I feel if I improve on my 5K and 10K then my half should automatically improve, too. I guess that’s not how it works, ha! Great week, Frank! Nice job! 🙂
