So I'm still trying to figure out how to work this blog....it's a work in progress I guess. I am very proud of my training this week. Monday I ran 6 miles, quick.
Tuesday I did a speed/hill workout for 55 minutes. It consisted of 3 parts: A 5 minute warmup, a 15 minute challenge run that was cycled through three times, and a 5 minute cool down. The challenge piece consisted of 3 rounds. ROUND 1: 4 minutes of speed, 1 minute of recovery, 4 minutes of speed, 2 minutes of recovery, 2 minutes of speed, 2 minutes recovery. ROUND 2: 4 minutes of hills, 1 minute recovery, 4 minutes of hills, 2 minutes recovery, 2 minutes of larger hills, 2 minutes recovery. ROUND 3: 4 minutes of speed, 1 minute recovery, 4 minutes of hills, 2 minutes recovery, 2 minutes of speed, 2 minutes recovery. Then into the cool down. It was a tough workout, challenging the heartrate zones.
Wednesday I ran a 5 mile run; which was tough, because there was less than 12 hrs of rest time from the tough workout the night before.
Thursday evening I did the same workout as Tuesday night......we'll see about a run tomorrow morning ;)
I have one last long run, hopefully to be accomplished on Saturday. The Minneapolis Half Marathon is June 6th, and I'm very ready to get that done :)
