Training Last Week: 400s and Moving
Greetings from the Cotton State. As most people know, I have relocated to Montgomery, Alabama for the next few weeks. While it wasn’t what I anticipated doing in 2017, sometimes things happen. Even though I’ve been here less than 24 hours, I’ve had a positive experience.
So how was training last week?
With working, packing and moving, training took a back seat. I still ran but life was more important. To be honest, I’ve been in a funk with running. My guess it’s a combination of having several runs in pouring rain and 30 degrees or bitter wind. Running in that weather hasn’t been the most pleasant but I’m hoping a change of scenery will also help.
|Monday:||Easy 60 min run|
|Wednesday:||Easy 65 min run|
|Thursday:||Easy 70 min run|
|Friday:||Easy 65 min run|
|Saturday:||12 Mile Long Run|
|Sunday:||Easy 65 mins|
Workout: 10X400s with 90 seconds rest
As most people know, I generally do my workouts on roads. Back in New Jersey, I didn’t have access to a track, plus I race on roads. My pace for the 400s averaged about 6 min/mile pace. I would have liked to be faster but my legs didn’t have it. I finished the workout feeling meh. I wasn’t confident but I wasn’t overly upset either.
The rest of the runs were easy with nothing major of note. I always enjoy running in Central PA and did my long run out there.
The plan for this upcoming week is to continue trucking along. (Isn’t always the plan?) I’ll be getting used to a brand new (life) schedule and brand new running routes. Neither of which I mind but it will effect training.
Questions for you:
Do you do workouts on roads or on the track?
How was the weather where you are?
