Is anybody else fearful for my life besides me? Anybody? Anybody? Ok good well at least somebody has faith in me!
This weekend I jumped pretty hard back into WS training with some serious workouts. Every run had a purpose and a challenge.
SP- I had 2 (technically 3) speed days this week. The first was Tuesday with shorts track speed work with the Mojo Team trying to stick to my 6:00/mile pace. Thursday I included 5 mile repeats in my 8 mile run (6:25-6:45 pace). I also consider some of my miles in the marathons "speed work" because they broke 7:20 pace. Why so much speed lately? I'm going to try and get one more fast marathon before I delve 100% into endurance/ultra training... at Boston!!!
LR-My long runs exceeded the required 43 total miles of running but that's because of the Patriotic Double I was taking part in. After missing a week of training I felt good to get back in it.
H- I'm getting in as much hill work as possible. I'm continuing to UP the resistance on the stair step for my 1-hour XT and boy are my legs starting to show it! Quadzilla!!! Not to mention ALL of my runs this week were on hilly courses... even my 8 miler with mile repeats. And let's not forget about Bataan where we climb mountains mid way through the race!
This Week: I had a couple of tough races (esp Bataan) after a pretty intense week of training so my legs were dragging a little last night. It's cool though, I feel much better today and ready to take on the Martian Marathon this weekend!
