I’m not ready for this week to start! The weekend was seriously too short.
Monday – REST
Tuesday – 5K
Wednesday – Intervals
Thursday – REST
Friday – Intervals
Saturday – 5K
Sunday – 13K
Last week was a solid week for me. I had a bunch of solid runs and my intervals were pretty great! Recently I haven’t kept track of my interval paces. I usually go a few seconds under the assigned pace and after texting my coach, I tend to forget about what I’ve done!
Wednesday intervals were interrupted but I managed a 2K warm up, and then 4 x 1k @ 5:45ish with my last K at 4:57! I haven’t really done anything sub 5 minute yet as I’ve been slowly tipping my toes back into interval training.
Friday intervals were 3K warm up, 5 x 2 mins at around 5:20 pace, give or take, and 3K cool down.
And Sunday, oh Sunday! My 13k run was the longest run I’ve done since October! I’m quite happy with where I am right now. A few months ago, I wasn’t even running and was assigned to cross training!
I’ve been taking a really lack approaching to training recently. I’ve been taking it one day at a time and have been trying to avoid thinking about it. In the years before, I would be counting down the days to my upcoming races but this time around, I barely even realized when my races were. I was a little shocked to realize that I have a 5K coming up this Sunday!
I personally really like this one day/one step at a time approach as you really can’t cram your running. Doing too much too soon to try and be “ready” for a race seems counterproductive as it increases the chances of injury.
Anyways, enough with my rambling! I hope you all have a great Monday!
So how was your week? Are you a race day countdown-er?
