Week 6 was an awesome week of training!
If you read last week’s post – you know I was slacking a bit due to vacation. Week 6 would be high mileage with cross training thrown in.
- 50 miles
- 08:44 time
- 5623 calories
- 11 workouts
I completed one spin workout, and three weight lifting workouts.
Hard workouts were both completed on the treadmill due to snowstorms and crazy cold weather.
Tuesday Tempo: Ran 5 min intervals with 2 min off from mile 1-7.5. 8 miles total, 7:48 pace.
Thursday Tempo: Ran a few miles at a harder pace. 7 miles total, 8:00 pace.
The long run this week was a tough 18 miler. We had to battle snow packed roads and chilly air. At least it was sunny and my running group could all run together.
It was one of those “shut up and run” kind of days, but we got it done!!
My favorite run of the week was Sunday. My boyfriend and I headed out for a relaxing 5 miler. The sun was shining and we had the best company. So glad to be with someone that will run with me and keep me company 🙂
I would anticipate this being one of my biggest weeks of training, especially for this lower key training session.
Until next time,
