Last Week’s Training Notes
Monday Easy Morning Run at the Lake
4x 15 sec strides at 5:30/mile pace.
Legs were a little tired. I focused on turnover. Strides felt good after 8 miles.
Tuesday’s ‘Hit it hard’ Run
Track Workout- 2 mile warm up, 4×200, 4xmile (6:26), 4×200, 2 mile cool down
Pace- average 7:05/mile
Last hard workout before RACE DAY!
Wednesday Long Run
It was hard to get going for this run, but my legs woke up at about mile six. I ended up feeling much better than when I started.
Thursday’s Easy Treadmill Run
Relaxed run with music.
I ran 4 miles easy. Then did 4 x 15 second strides. I always feel off of the day before a race. Today was no exception.
Warm up pace- 8:00/mile
10k Race pace- 6:30/mile
Cool down pace- 8:00/mile
It took me a little bit to open up. I stayed strong the entire race. This is a good starting point for 2017.
Sunday Run at the Lake
My legs were not sore at all from the race, but I may need to crash on the couch for a couple hours when I get home!
Total Mileage- I don’t add it up on race week.
Notes- Allow body to recover!
