Here is what my training looked like the week of 05.28.18 – 06.03.18:
Monday – Easy: 10.25 miles (8:18 pace)
I got in a longer than usual Monday morning run on Memorial Day. I ran a few miles with Rebecca and then we joined the Daniels for a few more miles.
Tuesday – Easy: 5 miles (8:38 pace)
For some reason, I am having a really hard time getting out of the bed in the mornings. I am usually a morning runner, but the last few weeks it has been a different story. I think I’ve only gotten up two out of the five weekday mornings the last few weeks. It’s crazy! Tuesday evening I did a loop with Reed and D Holley while my Daniel did a group run with the ProCycle group.
Wednesday – OFF
Wednesday was an unscheduled rest day. I had a workout that needed to be done, but it was storming Wednesday morning and by the evening I wasn’t into it and decided to take a day off instead.
Thursday AM – Quality: 8.5 miles (7:25 pace) + PM – Easy: 7.5 miles (8:06 pace)
Thursday morning I actually got up and got my workout in. I did a two mile warm up, a 15 X 1:00 hard with 1:00 easy recovery and a two mile cool down. My fastest minute was 5:27 pace (the last repeat (#lastonefastone)) and my slowest was 5:57 pace. The 15 minutes hard averaged out to a 5:41 pace and I am thrilled with that. I pushed myself hard, but didn’t feel completely depleted at the end of the workout. Don’t get me wrong, I still seized the opportunity to lay down and collect myself after the workout before getting ready for work. This has become a new post-workout tradition …
Friday – Easy: 5 miles (8:16 pace)
Daniel and I did an easy loop Friday afternoon after work.
Saturday AM – RACE: 6.2 miles (7:44 pace) + PM – Easy: 5 miles (8:19 pace)
Saturday morning I did a three mile warm up (at 9:08 pace) and a race (recap is here). I didn’t do a cool down after the race, but Daniel wanted to run later that afternoon when he got home from work. I decided to do a loop with him as somewhat of a delayed cool down.
Sunday – Easy: 12 miles (8:22 pace)
I ran with Jessica, Kenny and Bowie Sunday morning. Jessica had some marathon pace miles to do and we tried to hang with her for most of that. We did 7 miles at her goal marathon pace, which is definitely a victory in this weather!
Total – 59.4 miles
That’s it for now! Have a great week!
