First day of February tomorrow – Don’t forget to say your rabbit rabbit!
Here is what my week of training looked like:
Monday: speedwork – 6 miles total at 8:10 average. I did hill work again, which is my least favorite. Treadmill – 1 mile warm up at 9:00, 800M hills at a 7, 6, 5, 4 incline with 800M recovery at 8:00 pace, 1 mile cool down. Fuel – fasted, hydration – BCAAs, tunes – Spotify running. I finished by doing biceps & triceps.
These socks are from Stance’s Run line. I like them for running and recovery.
Tuesday: 20 minute cycle warm up, legs, glutes and 300 reps ab exercises. I’ve been neglecting my core work a little bit, so I was really sore. I’m still working on squatting heavier, so I waddled out of the gym.
Wednesday: 10 mile tempo at 7:10 average. I was in a really bad mood this day – and the run helped my mood immensely even though my legs were sore and dead feeling. Fuel – fasted, hydration – BCAAs, tunes – Spotify.
Thursday: 5 miles easy at 9:02 average with back/abs at the gym. Fuel – fasted, hydration – water, tunes – Yes Please by Amy Poehler on Audible. I prefer books or podcasts to music when I am doing easy paced runs.
Friday: 20 minute step mill warm up and chest/shoulders. My coach switched up my lifting work outs and they are much much harder. I am still so sore.
Saturday: long run day with an easy pace – 12 miles at 8:43 average. Fuel – banana, hydration – water, tunes – Serial series via Podcast. I usually run fasted, but I try to run with fuel at least once a week so that my stomach is used to it. This is the hydration pack I use when I am doing runs longer than 10 miles.
After my long run on Saturday, I came home and made breakfast and got back in bed and it was AWESOME! For dinner, we made burgers and played wine/beer pong. My kind of date night 🙂
