Monday Track workout
10 min warm up
6 x 800m @ 3:23 with 1:30 RI
How it went down
10 min warm up
3:19, 3:16, 3:18, 3:22, 3:21, 3:23
For my RI I just walked the 200m to my next starting point on the track.
This is what I have decided about the RI. What they suggest in the Run Less Run Faster plan is just not happening. I need more recovery time and I am ok with that. I was tired by the end of these but glad I got them done.
I am also following the 3:40 speed work plan but then doing my long runs on the 3:30 plan. I am doing this because I have strength in endurance not speed. So I tweeked it a little to really push myself to the next level. I know that is not how it is supposed to go down but I am really liking it this way so I am going to stick with it. Hopefully I will come in between 3:30 and 3:40.
Rest of the Week-
Tuesday - I did P90X Back and Biceps (I don't have a pull up bar so I just lift more weights)
Today I am doing 8 miles with 6 at 8:05 pace
Thursday - Finally going to do Insanity! I have been hesitant because there is a lot of jumping and I know my downstairs neighbor doesn't really love the noise I make :)
Friday-It's my birthday so I might do a little Tracy Anderson girly style!
Saturday- 13 miles @8:15 Boo-YA! A short long run!
The cooler weather is setting in and I love it! It feels so nice to run outside when you don't break into a sweat after just one block. But I will say I am going to miss a few things about summer and here they are....
Fruit/Veggie Smoothies (I don't crave them that much when it's cold)
Sparkling Water (ok I will prbly still keep drinking this one :))
Refreshing Summer Salads
The last two I will keep in my diet most likely but I probably won't have them as much. When winter hits I turn into a hot and warm comfort foods kinda gal.
How about you?? What will you miss about summer?
