Last week was unfortunately not a great week of training. With travel, unexpected extra work at the office and the snooze button defeating me a couple mornings, I didn’t get as much in as I wanted. My long run is on tap for tomorrow though, so I’m not completely giving up on it!
Here’s the day by day breakdown of my less than stellar week:
Monday: 3 miles easy in the AM followed by a great track workout. I ran 6X800s with a 3-minute jog recovery in between each repeat. My splits came in at 3:24, 3:19, 3:21, 3:19, 3:19, 3:18. Thanks to the Labor Day holiday I also got a mid-morning Body Ride in at Revolve.
Tuesday: Rest Day
Wednesday: 5.3 mile progressively faster, hilly run.
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: Rest/Travel Day
Saturday: 6.6 mile slow, sluggish run in the heat and humidity in Minnesota. Of course the weekend it finally cools down in D.C., it’s hot and humid in the midwest.
Sunday: 4 miles hard and fast around a lake in Minnesota with 4 striders at the end.
