Cilantro’s Training Log – 7.10.16

IMG_5804Monday: 7 miles, 5 at 8:00 pace (tempo).  Tough run, did it fasted and really felt rotten for the rest of the day.  Crossfit in the afternoon: 50 rounds: 1xsquat, 1xpush-up, 1xsit-up, 1xsuperman, 1xjumping squat.  This looked easier than it actually was.

Tuesday: 5×3:00 7:15 pace, 2:00 recovery.  5.5 miles total. CrossFit after teaching: :30plank, 30xmountain climbers, :20plank, 20xmountainclimbers, :10plank, 10xmountain climbers, :20sideplank (both), 20xmountain climbers, :20plank, 20xmountain climbers, :20side plank (both sides), 20xmountain climbers.

Wednesday: 7 miles total, 6x:30 @ 6:15 pace, 2:00 recovery. CrossFit after work: 5 rounds: 20xone-armed swings, 20xKB clean & jerk, 10xKB swings (25 pounds), 20xKB rows.

Thursday: 9 easy miles (9:00 average pace). Crossfit after work: 3 rounds: 10xpush-ups, 20xsquats, 10xsit-ups, 10xburpees, 25xjumping jacks, :20plank, 20xlunges.

Friday: Had 5 miles on the plan (easy) but was feeling super fatigued from the week.  Walked for 2 easy miles instead.

Saturday: 3 miles, physically fine except for yet another blister, but just so mentally and emotionally exhausted from the week this was all I could do. As a side note, why so many blisters now?  What do I need to re-evaluate about my shoes, socks, running, etc?

Sunday: 10 miles, not terrible for the first 6, but the blister killed my mojo.  Normally I can run through them, but I think this was the straw that broke this run’s back.

Total: 43 miles, 3 key CrossFit workouts + one core-focused workout.

Sometimes running is hard.
