Cayenne’s Training Log – 10.30.16

Monday:  Easy run and cross train

6 mile run (7:41)

arms abs, legs

Tuesday: Speed

Speed workout: 2.5 mile warm up, 8 X 400 (1:25, 1:24, 1:25, 1:25, 1:25, 1:26, 1:25, 1:25), 3 mile cool down

This was not my fastest workout in the world.  My legs were sore from the leg workout the previous day.  Note to self:  don’t do legs before a speed or tempo day!

Wednesday: Run

10 mile run (7:47)

Horrible windy, rainy run.

push ups, planks

Thursday: Steady run

8.5 miles (7:31)

I did this run with a fast runner.  We ran at a steady pace but I think it was easier for her than it was for me!

push ups, planks

Friday: Easy day

30 minute easy yoga

Saturday: Long run

15 miles (7:50)

This was my longest run since the marathon.  I felt it during the last few miles.

Sunday: Run

10 miles (7:50)

This run felt easier than the previous day.  I ran it with a friend which probably helped.

This week was mostly about building the miles back up.  None of my runs were gut bustingly fast but I was able to get in the most miles since my marathon.

Total miles: 57ish

I am a dedicated runner and classical musician. I am currently chasing a sub-3 hour marathon (3:00:38 PR). I often feel like the underdog going up against "serious" runners-I took up running after college, I do not have a typical "runner's body type", and I am mostly self-coached. I travel a lot to perform with different orchestras and run when I can, where I can. I love to (over) eat and that is my number one motivation for running! Follow me as I chase my goals!

  1. Solid work! I basically gave up on leg day because it never seems to fit — it’s either the day before speed, or the day after speed. The solution is to probably do it the same day as speed but … bleh.
