a blog about running fast with style
Week in Review: I’m on a roll…
I opted for no cardio to start the week and settled for 25 minutes of yoga. Since I’m starting to build my milage I wanted to be a bit careful. Okay and I was a little sore from my weight workout so figured stretching would do me some good.
Tuesday I managed and easy 45 minutes over rolling hills. My legs were still really sore. I can home to this sight:
Wednesday was my workout was a lactic threshold run. I managed 4.5 miles with my first 3 miles around 6:45 pace and ran my last 1.5 around 6:29. I averaged 6:38s and for all the detail you can checkout this link. https://runprettyrunfast.com/2012/04/08/fast-4-okay-4-5-miles-ltp/
My medium long run this week was 10 miles (my longest to date). I was expecting to be sore, but was pleasantly surprised. I even managed to run 8:12s.
I decided to run from my office after work which is the reason for the speedy mid-long run. Running the hills by my house clearly slow the pace down.
I was trying to be careful with my foot and had planned on biking on Friday morning. I showed up bright and early at the IMA only to be reminded that it was spring break, and apparently no one works out before 11:00AM on spring break.
So there I was in my workout gear and nowhere to go. I thought about just going to the office and waiting until 11:00 didn’t think it’d be too professional to be sitting at my desk in my bike gear.
Lucky for me I also have a locker in our staff locker room. I hoped I remembered my locker combo and headed out for an easy 45 min run.
I was smart and rested on Saturday (please foot hold on one more day).
Sunday was my longest run in months; 16 miles. I really wanted to run with people but I seem to get hurt after running with the group and I’d already gotten a quick mid-long run in.
So 16 miles on my own. Not bad (not the best) but a solid (and yes hilly) effort. Two solid weeks in a row but April is just around the corner and we all know how I like to start a new month.
