*January 26-31, 2015

Monday:

  • PLAN- 3 miles @easy, conversational pace plus 30 minutes of cross training
  • ACTUAL- 3 miles @10:56 average pace and 30 minutes on bike

My first workout with my new coach.  Almost did not go to the gym but glad I did.  Great run on the treadmill and 30 minutes on the bike wasn’t too bad.  Time went by quickly.

Tuesday:

  • PLAN-4 miles @easy, conversational pace with 6 X 1 minute fartlek with 2 minutes recovery
  • ACTUAL- 2 miles @10:55 and 2 miles @11:18

Ran 2 miles @10:55.  Pace felt OK.  Fartleks were done @7:59 and felt hard but at the same time manageable.  I am in awe of people that run races at that pace.  One minute was long enough for me. I took it slow the last two miles and ran them @11:18.  I was tired.  Great workout!  Definitely want to do this one again.

Wednesday:

  • PLAN- Rest day
  • ACTUAL- Rest day

Thursday:

  • PLAN- 3 miles at easy, conversational pace
  • ACTUAL- 3 miles @11:22 average pace

For some reason 3 miles was tough today.  Started at 10:55, then 11:18 and then back again to 10:55.

Friday:

  • PLAN- Rest day
  • ACTUAL- Rest day

Saturday:

  • PLAN- 6 miles @11:30  +/- 10 seconds with 6 strides at the end of the run
  • ACTUAL- 6.38 @11:21 average pace

*Runs on treadmill are done on 1% incline.

Thoughts:

  • What a disappointment about Rita Jeptoo.
  • I definitely enjoyed my workouts this week.  Next week will be similar with my long run being 7 miles.
  • I want these shoes.  So cute.
