Sunday – The family did a local 5K today. We are preparing for our five miler next week so I decided to play around with intervals. We did a 5:1 interval with a 12:40 average pace. It seemed to work well for us! Oh, and both my husband and Little Runner placed in their Age Group :)
I was supposed to do 3 more but my legs were killing me from Saturday and I needed to get up the Christmas tree so… crud.
Monday – Rest and taekwondo. I hope to make it twice this week but we’ll see.
Tuesday – 3.1 speedy miles. I took 20 seconds off from my 5K PR! My goal is to get it down to 28 minutes by spring.
Wednesday – The plan called for 5 but I miscalculated my turn-aound and only did 4.5. Since it was 5 in the morning and I knew my coffee was waiting for me, I absolutely COULD NOT keep going past my street for the last half a mile! I also threw in an extra taekwondo session with LR. I’ve been avoiding the Wednesday night sparring sessions for far too long…
Thursday – Intentional rest day. We are doing endurance testing tomorrow in our last swim session for the fall so I want to be well rested and (relatively) pain free.
Friday – Swim! My 300 yd time is 7:16. I have a lot of work to do!
Saturday – Our participation in Surfin’ Santa was nixed due to weather concerns so I ran 5 solo miles and then the family joined me for a MRTT holiday family run. LR ran a mile in 10:20 and then went back out for another one! This is the same kid who was complaining bitterly during the first mile on Sunday…,
Miles for the week: 16.7 -way too short!!
Total training miles: 141.2
