Training Summary 3/31 - 4/6

Well, this week was a bust.

This weeks plan: Run: 7 tempo, 4 easy, 5 easy, 19 long, 3 recovery. 2 gym classes.

What I actually did....not a whole lot.

Monday: 3 super easy with a group. We ran about 3/4 of a mile and stopped to do burpees, lunges, squats, etc. Repeated 3 times. Ended up with 3 @ 10:45 avg pace when it was all said and done. My legs were pretty sore from the long run the day before so I took it as easy as possible.

Tuesday: I had planned to do 4 on the treadmill but as soon as I got going I knew it wasn't a good idea. My right achilles/shin area is cranky and I don't want to push it so I did 3 @ 9:40 pace.

Wednesday/Thursday: Rested, hoping that the leg would recover and work itself out.

Friday: It didn't. 2 easy @ 9:39 pace and called it quits.

Saturday/Sunday: More rest.

I really hope that this is nothing major. Training for Bayshore has been going so well, I don't need this right now!

Total for the week: 8 junk miles and no classes. Boo.

Training Summary 3/24 - 3/30

Here I am again. We'll see how long I last blogging this time ;)

This weeks plan: Run: 7 tempo, 4 easy, 4 easy, 18 long, 3 recovery. 2 gym classes.

As usual I shuffled things around quite a bit.

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 4 easy @ 9:28 pace, body sculpt class

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: 3.8 easy @ 9:08 pace

Friday: Rest

Saturday: 7.5 easy @ 9:09 pace

(Lululemon bali breeze crb, gray 1/2 zip swiftly, MPG crops)

Sunday: 18.1 long @ 9:37 pace. This was a perfect run...outside, tank top, easy pace. I even got a little tan, which is pretty amazing for March in Michigan.

Totals: 33.4 miles, 1 class

I missed a 3-miler and switched my speedwork to an easy run but life was a little crazy this week. I need to be more diligent with this. This training season is actually flying by though, I can't believe I'm up to 18 miles already!
