I had an AWESOME running week! I really feel progress is being made.
I made the decision to toss out hill runs until I can do them outside. I really just hate them on the treadmill. Getting myself to run and workout is hard enough without trying to make myself do something I hate. So, I will be doing speed intervals twice a week and adding hills back in when I am able to get outside for them.
Wednesday I did 30 minutes of speed intervals. I walked one minute at 3 mph then ran 1 minute at 6 to 7.5 mph. Felt great.
My workout schedule got shifted around this week because of soreness. I rested Monday AND Thursday! I wound up doing my second intervals workout Saturday, when I try to have Saturday be a rest day before my longer run. But I ran Saturday because I wanted to get 3 runs in! I am focused on that 5k time. It was the same workout as Wednesday.
Then, dun dun dun, came Sunday. I was sore from working out hard. Sore was the theme of last week for some reason. But I was determined to kick that three miles in the tail. So I decided I would slow down my pace a little, but still get my run in. My goal was to run the entire thing. I did stop and walk very briefly at 2 miles and 2.5 miles. Otherwise, I ran the whole thing and am so glad to be able to hold a run again. Finally. Coming back from injury seems to be taking forever. Yes, I should have biked to keep my cardio up like the doc said. Hindsight.
That was my week in running, Now you!!! Go...
