It’s how I feel with the weather in NY right now. I am typing this as we are having a warm front but it’s dumping snow…
|Sunday:||50 crunches||14.65 mile run untimed, very easy. (maybe 9 minute or so pace?)|
|Monday:||50 crunches||11 mile progressive run (8:30 pace to a final mile of 6:21)|
|Tuesday:||50 crunches||10 miles easy in my favorite park in Syracuse, NY|
|Wednesday:||P90X||4.7 mile treadmill run|
|Thursday:||P90x||10.73 Treadmill Run (8:23 pace)|
|Friday:||Nike training App (for iphone)||10.75 Treadmill Run (8:22 pace)|
|Saturday:||50 crunches (my abs were tired this week!)||15.4 Long Run at a park (outdoors) 8:30 pace|
|Total:||My #corewhore challenge has started to actually take off||78 miles|
This was another high easy mileage week for me. My only goal is to come out of winter being injury free. I wanted to take a second and talk about my “love” for running on the treadmill. Look at this weather in the next week (not including wind chill…so it will be colder):
Don’t ask why I would rather run on the treadmill.
My only goal for winter is to maintain my base as much as possible. I hate running on the treadmill, but it is better than not running. Plus, in all honesty I don’t have cable at my new apartment so I’m able to watch TV while I run and get my dailyfix of trash. What I personally do is run for 90 minutes. I don’t run for a certain amount of miles (because then I find myself trying to push the pace the last half trying to get them done). I’m doing to be running on the treadmill for 90 minutes whether I run 9.456765…or 11…I plan to write a blog about this soon.
About my corewhore challenge: I have been getting my core workouts in the morning before work. (thus actually putting a bit of effort into them). The problem for me was that I was waiting until 9pm and I was tired from the day. Now that I get it over with in the morning it’s one less thing to think about.
So if you just want to know how my training is going…I’ll tell you it’s going well and I have no complaints. It was a good week of running for me. I don’t have ANY plans of racing anytime right now but who knows.
Questions for you:
Favorite workout of the week?
Do you like working out in the cold?
