Elena Lancioni 5/3/2012 Blog – Princess City Relays Week
Week of 4/23/12
Monday –Easy 5 miles with strides.
Tuesday- DAC meet against Portage and Michigan City. I ran the 4×8, 1600, and
800 today. Normal 12 minute warm-up and cool down.
Wednesday- Medium/long day of 7ish miles again with strides afterwards.
Other: Core, plyos
Thursday- Easy day of 5 miles.
Friday-Princess Relays! I was so excited; I was able to run my first outdoor
3200! I had to wait for about an hour and half, which always makes me
anticipate the race even more. I did a 12 minute warm-up with my teammate and
we did stretches/plyos before the race together. During the race I ran with my
friend, Kristina Galat from Penn, she was awesome competition and we both earned
new pr’s in the 3200! I had goal times for each lap, but I always have a hard time
looking at my watch each lap…so I just tried to keep a steady pace.
Saturday- Really easy workout of 2x100s, 1×400, & 4x100s. 2 mile warm-up and
Sunday- I have never ran really late in the evening before, but I promised Mitch
Hubner I would run with him one Sunday. I ended up running with him, Dakota
Dubbs, and Nathan Gerick on the golf course in the rain. Running with the guys
never fails to be entertaining, so I had a very amusing and fun run.
I can’t believe that post-season is just around the corner! Our conference meet
is already next week! Also, if there are any suggestions to up the ante on my blog,
just let me know…please
Total Mileage: 39 miles
