Sorry for not updating recently, been posting more to instagram(follow me!) since its a quick and easy post.
So here is my update for the last week, starting from my last run in 2015!
Last run for 2015 in the books! It was supposed to be a tempo day, but I’ve been using the week as a wash week with the BYOBib 5k test run on Sunday. It was supposed to be 20 minutes at a tempo(6:30) but with the weather, lack of sleep due to work and the “race” sunday I took it a little more easy.
10 Min up – 20 min at 6:45 pace – 8~ish min down – Strava link here
Actually toook the day off even though I was scheduled for an easy 3. Had dinner with friends for a birthday in the evening and stayed up later/had to work in the middle of the night so I didn’t want to get up at 6am to run. Nothing wrong with an off week!
Winter is here! I was supposed to 9×200 track work and I had this awesome(read dumb) Idea that I could still get it done. Pad down the track on the warm up and then go a bit slower but still get it done…
Yea that didn’t happen. Warmed up for a mile and then attempted a 200. Got it done but by the time I hit for my next set I just completely stopped. I got out. I tried. And that is all that matters.
Nice and easy recovery 3 in the morning. It started sleeting about a mile in and the next two miles were a slip and slide. Felt good considering and was happy to get the run in.
3 miles. 9:07 pace. 138 Avg HR. Strava link here
SundayRunday out at the trails again and with a couple other people this time. Its been nice to go out n the trails for these Sunday “long” runs because they are better for my recovery and even though I’m running slower I’m putting in the same effort.
I was supposed to run for 70 minutes but I got back to my car about 62~ minutes and figured whats another mile. I ended up over my estimated mileage for the week so it worked.
The picture is from a video I posted on IG(link here).
