Cayenne’s Training Log – 12.17.17

On an unrelated training note, my new Christmas gift to myself!

Monday: Long Run

12 miles (7:57)

This was a make up long run for the one that did not happen over the weekend.

Tuesday: Speed

200 meter indoor track workout:

2 mile warm up, 20 laps of straight away strides, curve recoveries, 2 mile cool down

Wednesday: X Train

1 hr elliptical

arms, abs

Thursday: Speed

2 mile warm up, 4 X 200 (39, 38, 39, 39), 2 laps of straight away strides, 1 mile cool down

This was another workout on the 200 meter indoor track.  I am cautious (aka slow) on the curves and did not run as fast as I wanted to on the 200s.

p.m. 3.5 miles (slow treadmill)

push ups, planks

Friday: Run

5 miles (7:56)

light arms, abs

Saturday: Run

4 miles (slow treadmill)

I had to cut it short because of time constraints.

Sunday: Long Run

13 miles (7:21 pace)

I finally ran a quicker long run.  I ran with the bf so it was easier not to slack on pace.

Total miles: 49

This was a decent week of training, even though the quicker stuff was run indoors.

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!
