Training: Easy Miles and Workouts
It’s been another boring week of training down. Generally the last two months have been boring. I’ve been training, and consistently training at that, but I haven’t raced. I haven’t raced at my peak fitness since October and I will say I miss that! Hopefully the weather cooperates and this is my last week of not training.
Anyway, not that the week was bad because it wasn’t. I got what I needed and wanted out of the week but it was nothing exciting.
|Monday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Tuesday:||Easy 75 minutes|
|Thursday:||12X400s average 88 seconds|
|Friday:||Easy 45 minutes|
|Saturday:||Easy 45 minutes|
|Sunday:||14 miles/7 mile tempo|
On Wednesday, I had planned to do my workout and I woke up and realized my body was exhausted and not ready. Not only did I nix the workout, I didn’t run altogether. I am glad I went that route and with sleep and rest, I felt much better for my workout.
12x400s 88 seconds with 400 recovery
I ran on the road, and it was very similar to last week. I was happy I spent time resting and overall was happy with the workout. Truthfully, I do like doing speed work (even 400s) on the road because that is where I generally race.
I am hopeful this will be one of the last weeks without racing. Unlike January, there are more local races in February. As you can probably tell from my training log, I am itching to get back out there and see where I’m at-fitness wise.
