7 miles speed
I was at the track by 5:50 this morning. I love having the track all to myself. Four women showed up to run a mile but thankfully they stayed in the outer lanes.
The workout: 1.5 mile warm-up, 3×1-mile repeats (7:25, 7:30, 7:37) with 800m rest interval in between, 1.5 mile cool-down. Not my fastest mile repeats but I was huffing and puffing like a dog. Another reason why I like being at the track alone; I sound like I’m dying during speed work.
Let’s recap week 9 of NJ Marathon training!
TUE: 8 miles speed + yoga
WED: 8 miles tempo
SAT: 18 miles
SUN: 5 miles easy
Total of 39 miles and 2 yoga classes! I was happy with this week of training, even though it began with some heavy, tired legs.
My plan for the rest of the week: yoga tonight, rest tomorrow, tempo on Thursday, yoga on Friday (I have the day off – YEAH!), long run on Saturday (20-miler — take 3), and easy miles on Sunday.
Have a great day!
