Last weeks training was a bit rough and it was one of my lower mileage weeks. The triathlon at the beginning of the week wiped me out. I rallied by the end of the week but my speed work took a hit…and that’s ok! I had a hard time getting my legs to go fast since they were so sore and tired. On Tuesday I tried speed and it just wasn’t happening. I tried again on Thursday and while not stellar still something and better than nothing.
Sunday: Indoor Triathlon! Yep you read that right. Talk about some awesome training…aka I was sore all week. But my SUnday morning running crew joined me. Kristy, Beal, Heldawg and Mason. 20 min Swim, 20 min Bike, 20 min run +5 miles after. (probably should have skipped those 5 miles after.
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Speedwork Fail! I was still sore from Sunday but tried to do speed anyways. 1 mile at 6:45 and 1-800 at 3:10 and I was done. I continued running until I reached 6.5 miles. It was rough.
Wednesday: 6 Miles and yoga!
Thursday: Speedwork Saved! (kinda) 3-1 Miles at 6:48, 6:52 and 6:47 and then 10 mins of hills. 7 miles total
Friday: 45 mins on elliptical. 15 mins Nike Training app Arms and 15 mins Nike Training app butt blaster. Was supposed to run outside after work but worked late. #workfail
Saturday: 17.02 miles outside in the wind. I am writing this post so I obvisouly didn’t blow away but it may have been a close call at times.
Total Mileage: 44.7
This week I met my goal of running outside at least 1 day a week (and yep, only 1 day this week), also cross trained many days. Biked and swam on Sunday, yoga on Wednesday, Elliptical and light weight training on Friday. Go Me!
Malachi 5 miler is this weekend and I am super pumped. Such a big race and for a good cause. Can’t wait to see you all out there.
74 days til the RIte Aid Cleveland Marathon!!! I wish it were tomorrow, seriously.
