Planned: 5 miles Easy Actual: 5 miles (9:15/mile)
Tuesday: When training for 26.2 with DONNA last winter, I really enjoyed the longer speed and strength repeat workouts, so I was excited to have 1k repeats on tap for today.
Planned: 5x1k Actual: 5.75 miles (4x1k @ 7:53/mile, 1k @7:47/mile)
What? Sometimes I need a post-it during speed work.
Wednesday: This made me giggle.
Planned: Rest Actual: Rest!
Thursday: It didn't feel as comfortable as I hoped, but I got it done. Trying to keep the overall goal in mind.
Planned: 4 miles Tempo Actual: 6 miles (4@8:13/mile)
Friday: What's more mentally challenging than easy miles on the treadmill on a Monday? Easy miles on the treadmill on a Friday afterwork at the work gym. I was bored, but I thought about how we were having homemade pizza for dinner.
Planned: 6 miles Easy Actual: 5 miles (9:14/mile)
Hot off the grill.Saturday: It was humid, but the joy of running outside made it worth it.
Planned: 5 miles Easy Actual: 6 miles (9:01/mile)
Sunday: Didn't have a lot of bounce in the legs today, so I decided to incorporate more hills. That makes sense, right? It turned out to be a nice run where I worked hard on the hills and kept a pretty consistent tempo throughout. It felt good to get in a long effort.
Planned: 10 miles long run Actual: 10 miles (9:30/mile)
Monster was getting in her squirrel repeats.
How was your week? Do you enjoy easy runs or find them challenging?
