This week was another good week. I’m not sure if I should plan on this, but especially in non-heavy-duty-training periods, I feel like I often follow a “one week on, one week off” type of a schedule. This was definitely an “ON” week!
Monday: PM – 7 miles with Nike Run Loud. This was my first run in over a week, and I kind of rocked it! 9:38 avg pace.
Tuesday: PM – Vision Quest Computrainer Class. I was tired from the long run the day before, but pedaled my heart out following a hills course out in Cali. 90 minutes.
Wednesday: Rest. I intended something, then decided to chill and rest. I was pooped!
Thursday: AM – 4 mile tempo run. I hit my tempo run goal of completing the middle two miles at sub-9:30. It was a nice morning!
Friday: AM – Strength Training. I had forgotten to schedule my PT workouts for this week, and was only able to squeeze in on Friday morning. A hard workout that kept me sore for a full 24 hours!
Saturday: AM – 8 mile long run. I met up with Lilian & Staci after their CES runs to help them finish out their long runs for marathon training. We completed 8 miles together, and I had a great time catching up with them and running along the lakefront!
Sunday: AM – 5 miles easy. I got up early to complete my run, and decided to find my new route for tempo runs (to challenge myself now that the 4 miles is easy-peasy!). I enjoyed expanding my morning route out by a bit and exploring more of the Humboldt Park neighborhood in Chicago. It was a gorgeous morning to be out and shake my legs out!
We’ll see how I keep things up… especially as this week contains some travel!
Plans for this week:
- Monday: Run or Bike in PM.
- Tuesday: AM travel, PM run (hotel or outside?)
- Wednesday: AM run if possible! some strength work?
- Thursday: AM travel, PM ladies’ night run.
- Friday: AM workout (bike or strength)
- Saturday: 5K race? figuring that out with Mike
- Sunday: longish run if needed to get to 20 miles.
