As you read this I am hopefully out getting in my long run for the week. I’m traveling a little bit this weekend so I took a vacation day from work today to fit in a 12 miler before I hit the road. You gotta do what you gotta do.
Last weekend was a bit unusual – I had a 7 mile long run planned but also a 5k race planned for Sunday. So I opted to run three miles on saturday (after 2 hours at the gym – yikes) and then run the 5k as hard as I could.
In addition, I have decided to change my training plan up a little bit, most noteably by moving from 4 runs to 3 a week, but more on that next week once I’ve gotten a feel for it. 🙂
aaand I got to check out a new-to-me Les Mills class called BodyVibe. It probably won’t become a regular thing (my gym is just testing it out right now) but I love trying fitness programs out and it was fun to try it!
Saturday – BodyPump* + RPM* + 3 miles easy
Sunday – 5k! 38:08.
Monday – 3 miles of speedwork.
