Weekly Work-out Wrap-up
And that I did! I know an 8 minute mile isn't all that fast. But it's a first for me and I'm proud. I'm even more proud that later in the week, I pulled off a 7:49 mile. Yippee!
I'm happy to say I got my behind in the pool not once, but twice, this week. I mostly futzed around without much of a plan, but I was able to swim with my head under water with bilateral breathing which is still pretty new for me!
Because I had way too much to take care of around the house-errands and such-I wasn't able to fit in my 20 mile long run on my one and only day off this week. My overall mileage for the week was much lower than I would like. But I got 2 new pairs of running shoes (details to follow) so that's a win, right?
By the numbers:
Miles run (completed/planned): 16/31
Days of Week I Ran: 7/7
Long run: 0/1
Speed work/tempo: 2/2 Speed work completed at goal time: 2/2
Hill Work: 1
Biking sessions: 0/2
Swimming sessions: 2/2
Days I Ate Healthfully and Sparingly: Umm..healthy? What's that? I had a hint of lime tostidoes attack ;(
Monday: 2 x 1200m @ 7:35, 4 x 800m @ faster, all w/ 200 m RI
Tuesday: swim, weights
Wednesday (day off): 20 miles @ 9:50
Thursday (long call): swim
Friday: 6 miles with 4 @ 8:30, spinning or bike hill intervals (30 min)
Saturday: weights (30 min), bike (30 min)
Sunday (overnight call): swim
I will be so much happier once my 3 overnight calls are in the past. I hate, hate, hate 30 hour shifts especially with the constant stress of crashing patients at any second. Thumbs down.
Quick question for ya'll: What pace do you do your recovery jog/walks at?? Do you think it matters?
