It’s time for the weekly run-down. I pushed my comfort zone a little bit this week. I made a decision I needed (wanted) to lower my “easy” pace. I have some goals to hit this year and I can’t do that without putting in some work. Funny thing is it hasn’t felt like work. I’m starting to love running again and looking forward to getting out there. Marathon training for 13 of the last 18 months seemed to steal my joy a little bit.
Training this week:
Sunday: Rest day
Monday: 4 miles, 9:42 pace
Tuesday: Track 12×200, with 200 recovery, 2 mile warm up, 1.5 mile cool down, total 7 miles at 9:11 pace
Wednesday: Rest day, house cleaning counts as cross training, right?
Thursday: 6 miles, 8:51 pace
Friday: Bonus track day, 2 mile warm up, 3×1 mile repeats with 800 recovery, total 7 miles, 8:50 pace. I hit those 3 miles 7:30-8:00 pace.
Saturday: Rest day. I know, no long run. That’s why I did the extra track workout this week.
We have had up and down weather here, typical Texas winter. This is Molly and I picking Ally up on Wednesday with the sun roof open and warm sunshine.
Then today it’s rainy and 32 degrees. This week looks more like winter but I’m over it. I promise I won’t complain when it’s 80 degrees at 5AM.
I thought this was really funny!
What are you training for? Any upcoming races?
