Well I’m a bit behind with my usual Monday morning recap, but still wanted to fill you in on how week 2 of my Shamrock training went. Overall, it was a really good week of workouts although I have to do a better job of figuring out how to integrate my spin workouts into my run schedule. I always have good intentions of still running, but once I’ve finished spin I don’t quite have the same level of motivation. I think this is fine on my 3 mile easy run days, but I don’t want spin to replace any of my quality runs.
Here’s the day-by-day breakdown:
Monday: Spin Class – Real ride at Revolve.
Tuesday: I put in 3 easy miles on the treadmill followed by my P90X routine and a leg workout.
Wednesday: I ran the DC Road Runners Predictions & Resolutions 5k in Rosslyn along the Mt. Vernon Trail as a fun training run. It was definitely not close to being one of my speedier 5ks, but I had a blast and it was a beautiful day for a run!
Thursday: Spin Class – extended body ride at Revolve.
Friday: I took my speed workout to the treadmill with 7X400 meter repeats followed by an abs and lower body workout.
Saturday: Spin Class – extended body ride at Revolve.
Sunday: I debated between my missed tempo run or my scheduled long run, but was really feeling the need to work on some speed so I went tempo run. It turned out to be a great decision and I rocked a 45-minute tempo run maxing out at roughly a 7:13 pace!
