It’s been a crazy few weeks of training, but I’m finally coming into the home stretch of this training cycle. I’m ready to race, although I doubt it will be very fast, and I’m really ready for a break. These last 2 weeks included 2 crappy days, a missed workout, and a weekend in Florida.
Monday: 6 miles easy, 7:39 pace. In hindsight this was probably too fast. Later I taught 2 classes.
Tuesday: 1 warmup, 2×3 miles at 6:58 pace, 1 cooldown (8.75 total). This was really hard-I stopped during the 2nd set to dry heave. I’m not sure if the faster pace of my easy run and the 2 classes were too tough on my legs or if I ate something that didn’t agree with me.
Wednesday: 5 miles easy, 7:58 pace.
Thursday: 2 mile warmup, 7 miles at 7:08 pace with 1 1:00 break, .25 walk cooldown. (9.25 total). This was really hard too! I was glad to be done with it. Later I taught 3 classes.
Friday: 5 miles easy pace, no watch. Taught 1 strength class later.
Saturday: 14 miles at 8:15 pace, taught 2 classes. My grandmother passed away so my kids and I flew to Florida that night and got in at midnight.
Monday– woke up at 3:30 Eastern to fly back home so I skipped my 6 miles. Stumbled around like a zombie the rest of the day.
Tuesday: 7 miles easy, 7:44 pace. Taught a strength training class later.
Wednesday: 1 mile warmup, 3×2 miles at 6:58 pace with .5 recovery, 1 cooldown (9 total). This was much, much better than last week’s speed workout, so hopefully that was just a fluke!
Thursday: 5 early miles easy, no watch. 3 classes later.
Friday: 1 warmup, 7 at 7:08 pace, 1 cooldown. This was way better than last week too, phew! Later I taught 1 class.
Saturday: 10 at 8:08 pace. Later taught a spin class and hosted a Halloween party.
I am looking forward to getting back on schedule this week!
