But I did manage to get it all in!
Here's what I did in list form:
2/28: 1 hour spinning
3/1: 2 mile easy run w/hubs
3/2: 8xHills run = 6.39 miles
3/3: 1 hour of boot camp
3/5: Pace run = 6.82 miles
3/6: 2.42 mile easy run in downpour w/hubs
3/7: Nearly long run. =8.52 miles
3/8: @work late. But 90 second plank + 50 reg. crunches + 75 oblique crunches.
3/9: 1 hour spinning
3/10: 1 hour boot camp
3/11: 9x400 @5k pace (see below) = 5.06 miles
3/12: TBD: Probably a long run
3/13: TBD: Probably breaking out my bike for the first time this year.
Fairly new to my blog?
Recaps from my previous 7 weeks of half marathon training:
Weeks 4 & 5
Weeks 1 & 2
Friday's speedwork: 9x400 @5k pace (goal range: 9:23-9:45)
I thought I would utilize the interval training function of my Garmin for once instead of having to stare at the screen and get ready to push the lap button when the time came. For those that are not familiar, you can set up intervals by time or distance. You set the duration of the intervals, the duration of the rest intervals, then the number of laps.
The watch beeps at you 5 times as you come to the end of an interval so you know it's time to start your rest interval or your next speedy interval. While you run it also tells you how many more intervals to go.
The 9:32 and 9:25 were within goal range, the other 7 (8:53-9:16) were faster! And I didn't even feel like I was going to die!
I'm looking forward to some nice weather this weekend and early next week! Great for running/biking...and with Daylight Savings tomorrow, it will be light out until 7pm.
Hope everyone reading is able to enjoy a taste of spring weather this weekend too!
