Workouts this week:
Monday – Cardio
25 minutes on the elliptical was quite a workout for me. I did intervals and did not get bored at all. The time went by fast!
Tuesday – 5 x 1000 (90 sec RI)
Done. It was tough and I struggled to get them done.
25 minutes of intervals on the elliptical. Loved it!
Thursday – 2 miles easy, 3 miles @ short tempo, 1 mile easy
Did not run. I was supposed to do yoga but instead took a break since I had a half on Saturday.
Saturday – Half Marathon
I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Half Marathon. The weather was great at the beginning and there were some parts of the course that I liked. It was HILLY and HOT towards the end! My finish time is 2:30:39. I tried really hard to finish close to 2:22 or 2:23 but had no energy towards the end. I will have a recap on Tuesday. I will be taking a break from races for a few weeks. My next one is Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon, July 21, and I am really excited about that one.
5×1000 ugh! rough for sure.Can't wait to hear more on the Seattle Race.See you at the R&R Chicago!
I.hate.1000s. Seriously, that's the worst interval distance invented. It's like too long to sprint, but too short to run slow. Blah! I'm impressed about your gym-stamina. I have no patience with the gym. I usually end up annoyed and leave within 30 minutes of arriving. LOL.
Yes Declan! I hope there is a meet up prior to the race.
The treadmill is my friend. 🙂
