Hanson’s week 7 started out with some great workouts, but unfortunately ended up with a stomach bug and some missed workouts. I’m hoping to rest up and get back on track next week.
Monday– 6 miles easy, no watch. Taught a strength training class in the afternoon.
Tuesday-treadmill speedwork-1 mile warmup, 4x .75 miles at 6:30-6:35 pace, 2 cooldown. I finally feel like I’m hitting my groove with the 6:30 pace! I taught a spin class in the afternoon.
Wednesday-8 miles easy, 8:17 pace. It finally occurred to me that I can do my long runs on Wednesdays because I don’t work during the day, and then I don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn on Saturdays! Hanson alternates long runs and easy runs each week, so this week’s “long” run was only 8 miles. Later I taught a spin class.
Thursday-2 mile warmup, 7 miles @7:35 pace (goal marathon pace), 1 cooldown. 3 classes later in the day.
Friday-10 miles easy, 7:54 pace. I found a new route that I loved from my gym, and was psyched to set some new Strava course records because I’m 10 years old and love head pats. I taught 1 strength class in the morning.
On Friday night I started feeling sick, and spent the night in the bathroom with some sort of stomach bug. I cancelled my scheduled 6 miler and 2 classes Saturday. By Sunday I felt better, but figured I should take some extra rest and get ready for next week, which includes a 10 mile race with some much faster friends.
