And, I almost hit 30 miles. I'm also trying to keep up the strength training 3x per week, even if it is only 10-15 minutes some days.
Monday - upper body strength + 5 miles steady
Tuesday - yoga
Wednesday - 4.5 miles steady + strength
Thursday - 4 miles speed work
Friday - HIIT/strength + 3 miles easy
Saturday - 9.5 mile trail run (hills)
Foggy and cold, but so beautiful out.
Sunday - race volunteering + yoga
It's rare that I volunteer for a race and I figured it would be good to give back. The manfriend and I had also run this race last year, so it was fun to see the 10 milers turn around at my aid station and the 16 milers keep on truckin'.
Best meal of the week? Crockpot pulled pork sandwiches + homemade slaw.
Hardest run? Speed work, of course. It's been weeks since I could make it to the workout and this week we alternated between 10K and mile pace, which was challenging to say the least. We did a mile alternating paces and then 4 x 600m with the first and third 200m at 10K pace and the second and fourth at mile pace.
Most fun run? Saturday morning trail run with the girls. It's rare that I run with others outside of speed work, so it was fun to chat away the miles. The miles seemed to fly by and before we knew it, we had covered nearly 10 miles.
What was the highlight of your weekend? And your hardest workout last week?
