Training: 2 Workouts and No Races
I didn’t race last week but got two high-quality workouts in. Lately, I’ve been enjoying workouts more than racing. Partly with my stomach, and partly with the weather.
|Monday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Wednesday:||12X400s with 400 jog recovery|
|Friday:||Easy 90 minutes|
|Saturday:||2X3 mile with 1 mile jog in between|
|Sunday:||10ish mile Hike|
Easy runs were just that, easy. They were boring and uneventful but that is also how I like them. On Sunday, my husband and I went for a cold, and snowy hike in Ramapo State Forest. It wasn’t the most evelation we have climbed, but due to conditions: wet, cold, icy…it was not the easiest.
Wednesday: 12X400s (with 400 jog in between)
6x400s at 6 min pace
4x400s at 5:56
2x400s at 5:53
Saturday: 2X3 miles
I have always been intimidated to do workouts on the treadmill. I’m worried I’ll pull, hurt, or break something because the treadmill makes you run faster than sometimes your body wants or needs. I was happy the workout went well and much better than anticipated.

I've always been nervous to take hard workouts to the treadmill but potential storms kept me indoors today. . . I nailed my workout of 2×3 miles with 1 mile jog in between. (6:27, 6:27, 6:25) (6:25, 6:23, 6:19) . . Contentions of best workout for me of the year, and I didn't fall on ice and break something.
In all, I’m proud of how the week went. I do feel like I’m progressing with my fitness and I am excited to race when I’m tapered to see where I’m at. I believe with rest and on a good day, I could run about 18:30 in a 5k right now. The stars have to align for that.
