Week four is complete, and my body is starting to get used to a regular schedule again. This was a cut back week, so I knew going in I wouldn’t have too many high mileage days, but I ended up a little under what I should have done. I’m also super tired and feel like I’m on the edge of fighting a bug, so crossing my fingers I don’t get sick any time soon.
Tuesday- 2 Miles
Wednesday-5 Miles, 1 Mile W/U, 4×800 repeat with 400 recovery, 1 Mile C/D
Saturday- 4 Miles
Sunday- 5.5 Miles
Total Miles-16.5 Miles
Monday was a rest day, and well, Tuesday wasn’t too active either. I got home late and just had no motivation to run on the treadmill. So I did an easy two to get something done, but I actually felt pretty tight from all the miles over the weekend. Not a huge problem, instead switched Tuesday and Wednesday’s workout.
Wednesday I was determined to get my speed work done. Because we didn’t meet for our regular Tuesday workout, I was alone on the treadmill at home. I turned on my trusty iPad and knocked out four 800 repeats while watching Friends. I felt pretty good, and it was nice to push myself a bit.
Thursday and Friday were off, but Saturday I was back on the treadmill. It was pretty gross outside, so I stayed in the basement. To mix things up a bit, I changed the incline every time the scene changed in Friends. It was definitely a different way to make it through a workout, but at least I wasn’t too bored.
Sunday was my longer run, and again I spent it on the treadmill. I slogged through 5.5 miles, but it actually didn’t feel that long. I’m getting to a point where I’m ready to run outside again, but unfortunately, the weather is just not cooperating.
