4 miles speed work
Since thinking at 5am can be challenging, I taped my scheduled speed work to my treadmill the night before.
RI = rest interval
I was short on time so I cut the cool down a bit short and only ended up with 4 miles. When I’m training for a marathon, I like to hit at least 5 miles for a shorter run. When I’m not actively training, at least 3 miles will suffice.
The 800s were definitely challenging but went by quickly. Watching the season premier of Teen Mom 2 helps.
(Mini) Workout #2
2 miles easy
I really wanted to hit 6 miles this morning with my speed work. All day long I kept thinking about it and couldn’t just let it go so I hopped back on the treadmill for 2 miles after work. Truth be told, I really wanted to finish the Teen Mom 2 episode I started in the morning.
After I was sufficiently sweaty, I headed to a yoga class…
Power yoga – 60 min
All I could think of is power hour (ah, college)! This power hour was quite different from those back in the day.
The room was heated and the instructor was so-so. There are a couple of different instructors that teach power yoga at RYAH so I plan on going to all of their classes to see which one I like best. What I found funny is that this class was heavy on the leg work…lots of squats and lunges. My legs were tired from this morning’s speed session and were practically shaking from the get go. It’s usually my upper body and core that gets the workout.
The half moon pose always scares the crap out of me. Something about balancing on one leg and hand and then twisting and looking the other way.
I did not look like that tonight. Even with using a block, I was a mess. Practice makes perfect, right?
