Last week's training turned up the intensity a bit. With two sessions focused on speed and the fact that I started working at the local running store, meaning hours on my feet, I was feeling a bit more tired and sore than usual.
Monday: Evening run with my neighbor. Hot and uphill for the first mile and a half. 4 miles in 40 minutes.
Tuesday: Track workout. 400 X 8 with 400 rest. This workout seemed more difficult than it was. A bit warm and a bit solo. I for sure missed my track buddies in Georgia. A total of 4.2 miles. My goal is to keep at the track workouts to hopefully help me get some speed. Lifted.
Wednesday: Rest day. Half hour walk and Pilates.
Thursday: Tempo run on the treadmill. Warm-up and then 3 x 9:20 min. miles. Lifted.
Friday: 6 miles hills and trails. Pilates.
Saturday: 8 miles easy. Felt good.
Sunday: 3 easy miles. Sore and tired. Didn't really want to run but had running clothes on so went.
Total mileage: 29 miles
