Whoa quick catch up on this week’s running before I dive into one of twenty-five articles assigned on Monday and Tuesday. If my running recaps aren’t very run to read (in other words, if you’re not my dad), sorry for the boring post.
Monday: Intervals. 2 mi warm up, 6 x 100m sprint, 4 x 1200m, 2 mi cool down
I was shooting for around 5min per 1200m, but I clocked in at 5:06, 5:08, 5:07, 5:07. I was happy that the repeats were consistent with each other because usually I get slower. My legs felt good but my butt was sore toward the end like it normally is. Bonus that I had the entire track to myself, so I pretended to break a ribbon as I finished each repeat.
Tuesday: Rest day. Clinic day, busy day, and tight quads & glutes from the speedwork.
Wednesday: Tempo. I was still feeling the speedwork from Monday, so my first mile was a little painful. 7 miles total and tried to keep 3mi @ 7:30ish pace–9:30, 8:47, 7:44, 7:28, 7:35, 7:19, 8:27. Quick ab & glute routine afterward.
