Training: Need for Speed and Bridge Runs
Last week was a good week of training for me. My legs felt tired, but I got everything I needed to be done.
|Monday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||8X1 minute hard|
|Wednesday:||Easy 50 minutes|
|Friday:||AM: 4 miles|
|PM: 7 miles|
|Saturday:||11 miles easy with friend|
|Sunday:||Run the Bridge 10k|
Tuesday’s Workout: 8X1 minute hard
The goal was to get a quick turnover. I ran hard for a minute and then recovered. I haven’t done formal or quality speed work since my injury. Even before my injury, I was doing longer tempos and mile repeats. Doing shorter workouts are going to improve my 5k speed. I do all of my workouts on the road versus track (because that’s where I typically race).
Run the Bridge 10k: 38:57
As you can gather, my body was tired. It was a rare week that I did not take a rest day. Several of my runs were shorter. Lining up at the Bridge Run, my body was tired, and I felt it. The course itself is difficult, and it was windy as well.
I’ll have a recap later this week. I’m happy with my time, and I do believe I’m in PRing shape. The weather was beautiful and that is one step above where I have been.
Questions for you:
Have you ever run over a Bridge?
How many rest days do you take weekly?
