Monday: 3-5 miles + 3min of 15 on and 15 off- I did 4 miles on the mill with a 30-60-90 pick-ups. Felt sufficiently toasted at the end! Swung the bells to finish off the morning!
Tuesday: 1mile WU-Tempo 2X2 miles with .25 recovery-1 mile CD-Off to the gym again for this one (I noticed today that the sun is out around 5am which means a lot less mill runs!!). Yes it was a toughie but oh so good!!
Wednesday: Rest-I decided to do legs today. I wanted to get a day of legs in and I knew I needed to have a few days to have them recover. 20 min on the bike and a leg punishment!
Thursday: Ladder intervals-I will admit that I chose sleep over doing this workout! My legs were wicked tired from the day before and I didn't want to push too much and then not have it in me for the next day! I did Pilates for a half hour and called it a day!
Friday: 3 miles-This was my first leg of Ragnar. I did 9.8 (but really it ended up being 10) miles and even though I felt like I may die if I had to climb another hill, I was very happy with how I ran! There are certainly some things I need to focus on in the next few week to be ready for Newport (like stay away from RedBull...once my friend but now my foe!) but overall I was happy. More on that in my recap!
Saturday: 13 miles-My first leg on Saturday was at 2am and was 5.4 miles. My second was around 11 for 6.3 miles. Again I'll recap soon!
Sunday: REST!!! I don't think my children got the memo on this one since the mini chickie was up at 12am vomiting and the big chickie was wishing me a happy Mother's Day at 5:30am....I thought Ragnar sleep deprivation was over?!
I'm choosing to redo this week of training since I have time before I need to be getting in serious long runs for ZOOMA Cape Cod (don't forget to use the code NANCY15 for 10% off!). Keep pushing forward!! How did your week go?
