Oops. More strength will be back next week! I have no good excuse, it just didn’t happen.
M: 4.16 miles, part of it with my fast friend. Splits 10:10, 8:51, 8:55, 9:24, 9:27 for the end. You can tell which parts were not on my own! 71F / 89%
T: 4.2 mi on the treadmill because it was pouring. Ave pace 9:56/mi
W: fun interval run! The workout was: 2 mi warmup, 8 x 200m @ 7:15 pace for the first 100m and “as fast as you can” for the second 100m with 3 min rest in between. Paces for the 200m were: 6:32/mi, 6:55/mi, 7:13/mi, 6:54/mi, 7:11/mi, 7:33/mi, 7:11/mi, 7:12/mi. (200m = 0.12 miles, so these were short sprints. It was kind of exciting to try to run that fast with full recovery). Total = 6.3 mi, 72F 94% humidity
R: strength – Peloton 30 min biceps + back (was trying Matty Giacomo’s 5 day split)
F: nothing – migraine day
S: tempo – 2 mi warmup @ 10:29/mi, 2 mi tempo block (mi 1 @ 8:37, mi 2 @ 9:08), 3 min recovery, 2 mi tempo block (mi 1 @ 8:38, mi 2 @ 9:03), 2 mi cooldown at 11:30/mi. The tempo blocks were supposed to be mi 1 @ 8:40 and mi 2 @ 9:15 so I was happy with this one. 8.07 mi total / 71F 94%
S: long run 11 mi @ 10:37/mi ave, 72F 97% humidity at the start and 79F 85% humidity at the finish. OMG I need it to cool off. It would be so nice to go for a long run where feeling overheated wasn’t the hardest part.
Total = ~33 mi, only 1 strength
I think maybe I will do a Sunday reading progress report!
2/3 through this (for local book club):
And 2/3 of the way through this too:
I am enjoying the author’s peaceful and positive tone — the reference to ‘too much’ on the cover makes it sound like it could be a rant but it definitely is not, which I think is a good thing!
For your weekend reading pleasure:
OMDG – welcome back to the blogosphere!
