Training: 2 Mile Repeats and Hilly 5ks

The last week of training didn’t start off the greatest but progressed to be better towards the end.  I didn’t accomplish my goal at my workout on Tuesday, but after rest and recovery, I felt a lot better.

Monday: Easy 60 minutes
Tuesday: 3X2 miles (6:54 pace)
Wednesday: OFF
Thursday: Easy 60 minutes
Friday: Easy 75 minutes
Saturday: Run with friends
Sunday: 2X5: Resolution 5k: 18:30, 20:15
Total:  60 miles

My easy runs went pretty well.  On Saturday, I ran with some of my closest friends and coworkers which was a lot of fun.

Tuesdays: Workout: 3X2 mile (6:54, 6:48, 6:52)

Long story short, I didn’t achieve the goal pace during the 2 miles.  I had an incredible tempo run the Sunday before, and my legs still had lactic acid in them.  I couldn’t change my schedule, so it was either then or never. I would equate it to the workout version of the

I would equate it to the workout version of the Philadelphia half marathon.  I wasn’t feeling great, it was windy and cold, but honestly, I put the run behind me.

I got a deep tissue massage later in the day and took the next day off.  The deep tissue massage, as well as rest, was exactly what I needed.

Sundays Race: Goal 2X5k with 3 minutes recovery

Race: 18:30

2nd 5k: 20:15

I’ll have a recap of the 5k later in the week, but it went well.  The course itself was surprisingly hilly.  hilly workout

I didn’t feel amazing, but I didn’t feel awful either.  I felt like the first 5k loosened me up and even though it was slower, I did feel better during the second 5k.  It was a tough workout, but I was happy with it.

Other than that, not too much else going on.
