I’m going to start documenting my weekly work outs here on Saturday’s. Obviously, because it is the last day of the week.
Last week was not a good running week. With my monthly visitor approaching, my runs were less than stellar. Going into this week, I definitely wanted to take things slower and enjoy my runs. Well, needless to say, my runs this week were 110% better and FASTER than last week.
Sunday: I lifted weights in my room because I was baking Christmas candy with Ryan’s family all day.
Monday: 5 miles at 9:30 pace. First day of Christmas break and this run felt really good.
Tuesday: 5.5 miles at 9:43 pace. I was going to 6, but stopped short at 5. Oh well.
Wednesday: 4 miles at 9:22 pace. I did 2 miles running, then 20 minutes on the elliptical, then 2 more miles running. Let’s just say my legs were DYING!
Thursday: 5 miles at 9:18 pace.
Friday: 3.1 miles at 8:46 pace. This was my first attempt at speedwork and it went really well! I did 6 x 800’s and in between 800’s I did 10 push-ups (regular, wall, incline), 30 crunches (standard, stability ball), 20 squats (regular, weighted). It was a lot of fun and I hope to incorporate that once a week!
Saturday: 2.5 miles at 8:54 pace. I just ran and increased the speed every half mile. Did some weights before and after.
Weekly miles: 25
