Honey’s Training Log – 3.15.15

It took the whole winter, but I finally feel like I am back on the horse as far as training is concerned. The longer daylight hours and the fact that I can finally see the path and the grass along the river (hardly any snow – yay!) don’t hurt either.

Monday – 6.5 miles along the Hudson River at an 8:44/mi pace

Tuesday – Club Night at the Races at the New Balance Armory. This is the periodic indoor track meet sponsored by the New York Road Runners.  I’m not a sprinter, but if there’s a chance to run 10-person relay in costume, I’m in. I did the Women’s 1 mile (6:54) and then ran 5 x 200 meters in our 10,000 meter relay. And I did it in a short red dress. Team costume!

Wednesday – An easy 7.12 miles (9:08/mile)

Thursday – Pretty much a rest day, walked home from school after Parent-Teacher conferences, about 1.25 miles

Friday – Blessed rest with biking to and from school

Saturday – I got back in the pool thinking about next week’s tri championships. 6 x 50 warm up, 10 or 12 x 50 freestyle (I lost count) trying to get to 12 in 10 minutes, which is my goal for the tri. About 30 mins total.

Puddles, melting snow, and runners back on the path... All signs of spring!

Sunday – It was cold and windy, so I wussed out on an outdoor long run and did my 10 miles on the treadmill. Thank goodness for podcasts!
