Monday: 5 miles- 1 mile warm-up around 11 minutes and then 16 X 400 under 2 minutes each. Average was around 1:57. There might have been a point about half way where puking was a real possibility but kept it together.
Tuesday: Easy 3 mile recovery run around the 'hood with some lifting.
Wednesday: Early morning long run with 10 miles. Funny how when you run in the dark the miles and time just kinda fly by.
Thursday: Recovery day.
Friday: Tempo run of 6 miles. Supposed to be four ten minute segments at an 8 minute pace but I just could not get there. Mine were more around 8:40 pace.
Saturday: 8 mile easy run with a side of getting caught in a downpour. Added some excitement.
Sunday: Client training.
Total mileage: 32
Since I have raised the intensity of my training I have not been too concerned with my overall mileage. Instead I have been focused on trying to recover to give a good effort at the three key workouts I have been doing- track, long and tempo.
Other exciting news:
-My brother is getting married this week! I am excited to see him and his beautiful bride this weekend.
-I have my first El Paso Training client. Love it!
