Training Week December 8th -14th

I picked it up a bit this week in the mileage department and felt it. My legs were done by Sunday. I finally successfully lifted three times this week! Nailed it! This contributed pretty heavily to a general feeling of soreness all week. But no pain no gain. Progress can not be made without a little discomfort.

Monday
12 X 400 on the track. My head was still full of snot from my cold so it was not the best performance but all 400s were between 1:50 and 2:10 so not too horrible. One minute rest between intervals. The last time I did this workout I couldn't hack it and had to take an extended break about half way through to recover. This time it was tough but I felt strong the whole time and didn't need to take any extra rest. It was great to see progress in my fitness.

Lifted- lots of squats and lunges which I immediately regretted. So much burning.

Tuesday
2 mile walk followed by 3 miles of an easy run on base. Super sore from lifting so it was nice to shake some of that off. Half hour in the pool.

In the evening 4 miles with my half training group in an ugly sweater followed by wine tasting. Not a bad night. Kinda think all runs should be followed by wine tasting.....


Wednesday
6 miles easy in the morning followed by lifting with a focus on arms.

Thursday
4 easy miles around the base.

Friday
8 miles of some tough hills- first two miles uphill...so much uphill but a super fun route and my friend and super awesome running buddy found a pair of my favorite running pants, like seriously the last pair in existence in my size I had looked everywhere, and gave them to me for Christmas. Best morning ever!


Saturday
8 miles with my half training group. A fun new route that took us through downtown but ended with a mega hill climb. So proud of my training group. They are killing their training and looking so strong. Lifted in the afternoon- full body.

Sunday
3 miles of run/walk followed by lots of lazin about.

It felt good to get movin a bit more. I am super happy I finally made it to the gym three times in one week. My goal is to continue the trend this week!
