Despite the Spring Forward time change, I actually had a pretty great Monday.
Until a doctor’s appointment and some other triggering stuff but let’s not focus on the bad.
Yay!! Time for….
Last week’s workouts:
Monday: 41 minutes, 4.24 miles total, 2.2 at tempo. Pretty decent run to start off the week. We also did 4x 250m strides and weight lifting.
Tuesday: 56 minutes, 5.37 miles. A beautiful longer run! + 10 minutes of abs and 4x 60m Strides
Wednesday: Workout- 1 lap track repeats- I loved this one because I’m pretty fast at these and I beat coach’s recommended times EVERY time. + Weight lifting (upped the weights and felt it the next day!)
Thursday: ~56 minutes, 5.5ish miles. Satellite finding probs. + Core
Friday: Easy run!! 30 minutes easy (ended up being like 3.4 miles and 36 minutes, oops!) and 4x 200m strides.
Saturday: 58 minutes, 5.57 miles. This was a trek, not a run. There was a ton of snow and ice on the route (we were supposed to do 6 but had to modify the route). Also my blood sugar kept going low so I had to walk a few times to eat a fruit leather. twice. My stomach didn’t like that. Oh well, it was a good long run with a great friend! We did 6 minutes of core and deeeeepppp stretching after.
Sunday: Rest! (duh). I did 10 minutes of yoga.
Mileage: right around 28 miles- Wowza!
Reflection: This was a crazy week as far as running- that milage!! I am so proud of it though, and especially of my paces on some of those long runs. A few months ago I couldn’t keep up a 10:20 pace for 3 miles and now I can do it for 5.5 in bad conditions. I know I’m not fast but at least I’m getting faster My feet are tired though!
This week’s workouts:
Today: Rest day. Yes, two rest days in a row. No, I don’t care. I’ll probably do a quick yoga routine before I go to bed though.
Tuesday: Practice (easy run!)
Wednesday: JV invite. I am running the mile. I’m going for my March Goal here
Thursday-Saturday: Whatever coach says!
8:00 in the mile!! <—Secretly I really want to break 7:00 but I’m terrified of saying that and not being able to do it.
Here goes nothing… Break 7:00 in the mile!!
How were your miles this week?
Do you have any running goals?
What do you do for tired feet?
P.S. Imagine Dragons is Thursday. I AM SO PUMPED.
