Training Recap: Warm Weather and 10 Milers
Last weeks of training went well. My goal was to run Broad Street, something I didn’t do last year. I knew I wasn’t in the same shape as when I PRed at the Phoenix half and honestly that is okay.
|Monday:||6-mile hike at Cattus Island Park|
|Tuesday:||Easy 60 minutes run|
|Wednesday:||12X400s 400 recovery average 87 seconds|
|Thursday:||Easy 60 minutes run|
|Saturday:||Easy 60 minutes|
|Sunday:||Broad Street 10 miler 1:02.51|
Wednesday: 12x400s average 87 seconds
My workout went well. I do all of my workouts on the road right now because of the limited Availablity of local tracks. I ran 400 and jogged 400. I felt good during the entire workout and was pleasantly surprised with how fast I was able to run.
Broad Street 10 miler (1:02.51)
I’ve run faster Broad Streets and I’ve run slower. I kept a very even pace the entire time. All of my miles were between 6:10-6:19. I smiled, I side fived kids, and truly enjoyed myself. That was not something I could do last year and I’m proud of how I ran the race. I’ll have a full recap later in the week. Both my dad and father in law had great races as well and it’s been great having my entire family here.
Other then that, it was a good week. While I’m not in the same shape as I was when I ran the Phoenix half marathon, I am in good shape. I’m looking forward to just running shorter races from 5ks to 10 miles until the fall.
