Ahhh, spring has finally arrived (except for that bit of snow on Friday). It feels so much easier to get into that training headspace when you can get out the door and run some familiar loops. Looking forward to some big races in the coming months!
Monday – 8 miles easy (9:45 pace). Recovery run after going all out and placing 2nd in the women’s tri championships – woohoo!
Tuesday – rest
Wednesday – I dragged my butt down to the gym for an evening speed session on the treadmill. 1.5 mi warmup, 1600 m, 1200, 800, 400 m progression getting faster from 7:45 down to 7:15, with 400 m rest in between. 6 mi total.
Thursday – 6 mi tempo run. After a 1.5 mi warmup (7:30 pace)
Friday/Saturday – Rest
Sunday – 9.5 miles in shorts! (8:55 pace)
