Another 3 miles. I'm kinda happy about this run! Considering my 5k PR is 38:05, this is definitely promising!
Tuesday: 40 mins STLeg press - chest press - tricep extension - shoulder press - leg extension - seated leg curl - bicep curl
I took off work to spend the day with my best friend and do wedding planning stuff with her, so I made sure to get up early and get my workout in! I am NOT a morning person and usually can't be persuaded to get my ass out of bed early if I don't absolutely have to, so I'm proud that I did it! I had the fitness center all to myself- it was quite nice.
Wednesday: 40 mins XT
walking, 2 miles
Friday: 8 x 200
56, 54, 56, 59, 60, 59, 58, 56
I ran a warm-up mile with the kids at work and went to the track in town after my shift. Jeff had to work all night, so I was missing my running partner. My times were generally faster than the last time I did this workout, but it felt a lot harder to do. Also, I know I'm not supposed to run so fast on these splits, but I like to! My average mile is 13:00-ish and my speedwork "pace" is something like 8:00. My body seems okay doing it, so... there's that.
I'm trying to keep my long runs as close to the same day as possible, and so far, I'm failing! I wanted my long runs to be Thursday, but things keep coming up and I end up having to do them on the weekends. Which is fine, because school is going to be starting up soon and I'll have to switch it anyways.
Sunday: easy 6 miles
13:39, 13:23, 13:19, 13:04, 12:44, 12:13, 2:16 (0.2) = 1:20:38
I did this on the treadmill because it was super muggy out today and I wanted to make sure I had negative splits. I had a bad night's sleep last night so it was a bit of a struggle and felt like I was running for an eternity! Regardless, my pace was spot on and I decided to make it an even 10k so I could say I PR'd my 10k time. And now I'm exhausted.
I don't really have anything major to add for this week. It was honestly pretty uneventful. I can't decide whether I'm just getting into a groove and getting used to my training plan or running has just become boring. Either way, no drama is good drama. Or something like that.
