Hello from the future! The fact that I’m posting this training log on Sunday of week 2/13 should tell you something about Week 2, which coincided with a bout of illness (unforeseen) and a very busy period at work (anticipated)…but that’s a story for another day. (Spoiler: it did not go as well as this week.)
Monday was a bluebird day.
AM – Took advantage of the brilliant weather before a snowstorm rolled in later in the week. I set out to do 3 miles and ended up doing 4.5 miles easy, 9:41 pace
PM – Track! 1 mile warmup, 3x2000m (10x200m on an indoor track, with every lap one second faster than the last – not as easy as it sounds!) with 400m shuffle in between, 800m cooldown. 5.5 miles total. Laps between 65 and 55 seconds.
Tuesday – off
Wednesday – 5.5 miles easy, 9:52 pace
Thursday – SNOWSTORM. Thus, daycare snow day. 3 miles easy, treadmill. Something about snow-day toddler-wrangling is tougher than regular-day toddler-wrangling; maybe it’s mental.
Friday – 1.5 miles easy (back to the old rule: if you only have 20 minutes, run for 20 minutes. I had 15 minutes before daycare pickup…)
Saturday – 8.3 miles, treadmill. First 6 at 10:30, last 2.3 in the 8:50s (my current HM pace)
Sunday – 2 miles progression and strength (reverse lunges, goblet squats, push-ups, MYRTLs)
Total: 30.3 miles! 1st 30-mile week in a while, and I even managed to fit in some strength work. I know, the numbers are arbitrary. That’s 48.76 km.
