Hard to believe it is Sunday again! This week definitely went by fast. Work wise it was exhausting. I come home and I am mentally exhausted. I am trying very hard to be patient and stay positive. I know everyone is struggling but it is just so hard right now.
This was another another great week of running. Let me tell you all about it. I had 4 days of recovery/easy runs and 3 days of speed workouts. I enjoyed them again!
This week’s workouts were the same as last week but my coach had me run an extra interval and mile. On Tuesday I ran for 3 miles, then did 5 surges each lasting 30 seconds and recovering 1 minute after each surge, then running easy till I hit 4 miles. I felt really good again. I asked my coach if I was going to do 6 surges next week. He told me no and that next week it will still be 4 surges and each will be for 45 seconds.
Another fun workout I did on Thursday was run four 1/4 mile intervals at a target pace with 1/4 mile recovery. My coach asked me to do them in in 11:15-11:30, 11:00-11:15, 10:45-11:00, and 10:30-10:45. I was flying! I ran them in 10:28, 9:58, 9:37 and 9:02.
Saturday was 7 miles with six 90 second intervals with a 90 second recovery (one in each mile). The interval and the recovery is about 1/4 mile so then I run easy for 3/4 mile before doing it again. I also enjoyed this workout and would definitely do it again. I have a feeling next week I will be doing 8 miles with 7 intervals.
Another week and I am very happy with all of my runs. I also did 4 bike classes with Cody, Jenn, and Robin. The classes I enjoy the most are those with 80s music. I wished there was a way to pick classes with that specific type of music.
I didn’t take any pictures during my runs so I have nothing to post here. But I did take some of my cats. I know Jenn likes my cat pictures. 🙂
