Well hello, hello and happy Monday!
This little guy makes me smile. Everyone needs to smile on a Monday morning.
Here is what my training looked like the week of 03.19.18 – 03.25.18:
Monday – Easy: 5 miles (8:44 pace)
Tuesday – Quality (Threshold): 9 miles (7:23 pace)
Tuesday’s workout was a 2 mile warm up, 4 X 1 mile @ threshold pace w/ 1:00 recovery and a 2 mile cool down. I woke up feeling rested and ready to tackle this one. This is not a typical tax season training state of existence for me, so that was a real nice surprise (Clark). Goal threshold pace was 6:26 pace. Actual splits were 6:26, 6:23, 6:24 and 6:18.
Wednesday – Easy: 7 miles (8:34 pace)
Thursday – Quality (Threshold): 7 miles (7:51 pace)
Thursday’s workout was a 2 mile warm up, 3 miles @ threshold pace and a 2 mile cool down. In another somewhat unusual turn of events, I did this workout Thursday evening after work. Goal threshold pace was 6:26 pace. Actual threshold miles during this run were 6:54, 6:59, 6:47. Those 6:50 miles felt like 6:20 miles. Goodness. I really dislike evening workouts. Even so, it was really nice out and I didn’t regret getting out there and doing the workout. The sunset made it worthwhile.
Friday – OFF
Sunday – Easy: 12 miles (8:21 pace)
Total – 53.2 miles
That’s it for now. Have a wonderful week!
