This is my second post of the day because I forgot to set up my Weekly Fitness and Meal Plan to post yesterday. The life of a blogger! 🙂
This week was a wonderfully easy week for me with running. I just took it as a recovery week and did a lot of great easy runs and walks. It was also super social for most of our runs and it was exactly what I needed!
Monday – One mile and a BodyPump class. It was a great class and I’m already back to my normal weights on everything!
Tuesday – 4 mile run with the girls! We ran most of the 4 miles and walked some too. It was really hot, sunny and humid.
Wednesday – We tackled some speed work. Cara’s training for a 5K and we decided we’d show her our support and run some speed work with her. It was silly fun and we all did so well! We ran a mile warm-up and did 60 x 60 (1 min fast, one minute recovery) for 8 rounds. I was so surprised at some of my pace splits! I had not hit some of those paces in a long time (I stopped doing speed work almost 2 years ago). I also felt super strong and I could tell that my HR training has paid off. The highest I saw on my HR monitor was 172 and that was right towards the end. I was in the 160’s for most of them and was running sub 7’s.
Thursday – 4 miles of solo recovery run. I kept it super easy, ran at a HR of 135 or below.
Friday – one mile
Saturday – 6 miles with friends. We have some friends who either just had a baby or is pregnant and they came to meet us! It was so great to see them and we all enjoyed our walk. We had a huge group walking and talking down the Greenway. Our friends turned to head back at 1.5 miles and the rest of us went out to mile 3 and ran back. We had great run! It was the perfect start to the weekend!
Sunday – Race the Bar 5K with Christine and other runner friends. It was a great event and I’ll have my race recap up tomorrow!
Total weekly miles: 23.14 miles
2015 Year to Date Miles: 564.35 on my way to 1500
