Last week I had two workouts on the track, both occurring in the early morning.
Workout #1: Thursday
This workout was really scheduled for Wednesday however Tuesday night was a TERRIBLE night at our house - everyone kept waking up all.night.long - which meant I overslept and then my daughter has swim lessons Wednesday nights. Cue Thursday morning track workout.
It was slightly chilly, aka perfect running weather. I had 10x400.
I ran to the track on the most direct route, which was 1.81 mi warm up.
My 400s were to be at 90-95 seconds each. Nailed that:
It was so weird to be doing 400s after focusing on the marathon distance for almost half a year! I ran home for the cool down to get some coffee and get to work!
Workout #2: Saturday
Saturday was another morning, although not quite as early given that I didn't have to dash off to work. I again ran to the track and incorporated some of the track into my warm up so that i could start at the true 800 starting line. 4x800 was up, with an 800 recovery jog in between each. Goal pace for these was 3:00-3:05.
I incorporated my last rest jog into my cool down for a total workout of 7.76 miles.
All in all last week was a good running week. The other two days on my plan were easy runs with strides. I got a bonus workout in on Sunday because my daughter has been going gangbusters on her bike lately and wanted to go on a "long" bike ride (4.17 miles). I ran with her. Our pace was all over the place, given the downhills that she flew down and the uphills that I pushed her up but we finished in 40:37.
Total mileage last week: 26.08
