Training: Easy Miles and Workouts

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
Wednesday: REST
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.

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.

Thoughts:

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.

  1. Training is really tough over the winter. Tough but necessary. Just had my first race last weekend on some ice. I already feel sharper from it. Next race is February 10th. A 2 miler on the road.
