Let's Talk Training!
Monday: 3-4 miles with 8 strides...We went to watch the marathon with the ladies so as inspired as I was...I was soaked and freezing most of the day. Getting home honestly I wanted to run but my sweats just felt so amazing!!
Tuesday: 1m Warm-up, Tempo 3 miles, 1m cool-down...I headed to the gym early and got the tempo run in. These make me so nervous at first but then I feel like I can take on the world when I'm done!! I also was able to head out when the hubby got home from work and did the workout from the day before. Thank you Daylight Savings!!
Wednesday: rest...headed to the gym again and hit the bike and some kettlebells for the win!
Thursday: 6 miles with negative splits...My friend Christy (and Ragnar teammate) and I had arranged to meet up to run. I met her early and we cranked out a pretty hilly 4 miles...I love running with other people! The time just flies by!! I did another 2 miles once I got home to hit my mark!
Friday: 3 miles...Another morning at the gym for 3 miles on the mill and more kettlebells!
Saturday: 14 miles...I changed this up mostly because I know that my race isn't for another 3 months but I wanted to keep with going over the distance I was training for. Since my first Ragnar leg is 9.8 miles and I also have a 10 miler coming up, I decided to run 11. I'm not sure what all clicked for me this run but I felt FABULOUS!!! The miles flew by and my body was happy!!! Definitely a confidence builder!!
Sunday: Rest...as much as you can with a 6 and 2 year-old!!
This week I'm going to try again to get in at least one double...maybe two! I am also making sure I am getting my weights in more consistently...don't want to lose what I've worked hard for!!
How did your week go?
