So in case you missed it, this weekend, I got super excited about football and I did that long run I've been dreading. I'm really encouraged by how it went yesterday and I'm ready to get back into training!!!
So this week is my 11th week - which means I have 11 weeks left. I'm counting down...
Monday: Rest day since I ran 2 hours yesterday
Tuesday: Spin class - I keep oversleeping but since I can't ride tomorrow night, I want to get to that class
Wednesday: Tempo intervals - 4-6 sets of 5 minute intervals with a 3-4 minute recovery
Thursday: Swim + strength
Friday: Speed work; 5x60 second strides with 2 minute recovery, 5x30 second stride with 1 minute recovery, 4x1/4 at 10k pace
Saturday: I have yoga teacher training all weekend long so it's going to be hard for me to do a ride or anything
Sunday: 5 miles non stop - I'll have to get up at 7 and do this so I can be at yoga training by 9 am.
One BIG thing I've noticed is that since I've been doing abs - fitabs challenge plus just me trying to continue to do them - my back hasn't bothered my as much while running. Coincidence...I think not... So i gotta try to keep doing those!!! My colleague, Meredith and I (also my running buddy), do abs every hour, or we try to. That's been helping tremendously.
so.... that's my week... What does your training look like this week?
