Today was one of those days that I really wished the treadmill didn’t make me stop at 60 minutes. All I needed was one more minute to finish my run.
The workout called for 10 x 2 minute hard intervals. For the intervals I averaged a 5:56 pace (10.1 on the treadmill). For the non-hard time I was at around a 7:20 pace which felt comfortable only because I was comparing that pace to the 5:56 pace:) Finished the 9 miles with a 6:48 average pace, 1% incline. The rest of the week will involve two more runs at an easy pace.
Reason #452 I love having a coach, I don’t have to think about my workout until I start it. I love not stressing about it and just doing what she tells me to do. I’ve stopped overanalyzing and getting nervous about my workouts and just get them done.
Followed by some stretching and weighted bridges to strengthen my glutes!
Before the run I hit up Dr. Bennett’s office for my ‘every three weeks I go in and he fixes me all up so I can go train hard again’ appointment. Luckily, nothing has been bothering me too bad this training cycle but my hip flexors do get tight and sore. The hip flexors are used with every stride that we take when we run so I really want to stay on top of them.
Some great stretches to help them out:
Right after my run we came home and had some lunch.
Who doesn’t love wearing sunglasses indoors while eating their broccoli?
The park was next on the list because it feels like Fall out.
Swinging= motion sickness so I lasted on the swing for about 2 minutes.
Do you get motion sickness? Car? Swings? Roller coasters?
Anything tight for you right now? Any little ‘hot spots’ from training that are bugging you?
What has been the best part about your Wednesday so far?
