The last few weeks of running have been boring. They haven’t been good or bad, but there has been a lack of excitement to them. This is for a few reasons: I’ve been running by myself, a lot of indoor runs watching TV, and zero races since early December.
Believe me, if there was a race every weekend, I would be there.
Moving forward, I was able to get two workouts in last week.
|Monday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Thursday:||Easy 30 minutes|
|Friday:||Easy 45 minutes|
|Saturday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Sunday:||14 mile run with|
Usually, I take a rest day each week. In fact, this is the first week in a very long time I haven’t. To be honest, the 60-degree weather on Thursday lured me in. Did I have to run? Of course not. Was it the smartest? Maybe not…however, we haven’t seen the 60s in a few months and shorts weather was welcomed. I kept it shorter just to be smart but enjoy some warmth.
Wednesday: 12X400s (average 88 seconds, 400 rest)
I haven’t done 400s on the road in a long time. Truth be told, if a track is not open I’m more likely to do them on the treadmill. However, I don’t race on the treadmill and so on Wednesday when the roads were fairly clear (clear of ice at least), I found a quiet spot in a neighborhood and did my workout. I was ecstatic with how it went.
Sunday: 14 miles run with 7 miles at 6:58 pace
This was my fastest long run since coming back from my break this summer. I am both happy and surprised with my effort. I do know, I’ve been able to run workouts faster because I’m not racing, but I am still looking forward to racing.
In all, I had successful runs and workouts this week. Boring, but I never claimed to blog because I was an exciting person.
