Currently training for: B.A.A 10k on June 21st. This will be my first official 10k. Two weeks after this race my official marathon training begins!
Training Program: Run Less, Run Faster 10k training plan
I had an “okay” training week. I got my three runs in but my long run was anything but.
Tuesday: Tempo 3.1 miles in 30:19 (avg. pace 9:47/mile) First run in my new Saucony’s and it felt great!! This was such a strong run for me.
Friday: 3 x 1600m intervals @ 9:13 with 400m rest
Total: 3.75 miles in 37.40 avg pace 10:03/mile
This run felt good! I love pushing myself with intervals.
Sunday: 3.19 miles in 36:31 (avg. pace 11:29/mile). This was my “long” run. Unfortunately, by the time I got on the road, I did not have much time before church. Its my fault, I was exhausted and I just could NOT bring myself to start running. I’m okay with it though. My legs felt heavy but I was able to finish faster than I started. I’m currently doing a cleanse so I think, physically, a shorter run was a better choice anyway. I’m not sure I have the calories/energy for anything more than 3 miles.
Again, not much cross training. I have still been stretching but not really posting pictures. It was getting hard to get the pose right and snap the picture with my timer! I’m hoping to get back to body bump this week. The chiropractor said he’s already seeing a lot of improvement and I can feel it.
Come back tomorrow for my Race Recap Link up!
What is your favorite way to cross train?
