Monday: 5 miles on the treadmill and I made it hurt. I pretty much just was all ADD on there, pushing the pace for a song, slow down the next one, then slowly increase for a song or two. Or I would switch to a higher incline and start out slower and build the speed up until I thought my legs were on fire. I read an article that running on the treadmill on a 0 incline is pointless, so from here on out I will always do my treadmill running on 1 or 1.5 incline. After the sweaty sweat sweat session on the treadmill, I hit the weights for some HIIT and cardio bursts for about 35 minutes. Most times I wasnt even counting and found myself just lifting to exhaustion.
I had a really rough day at work and I found out that my niece had an accident over the weekend which resulted in surgery (10 pins and 1 plate in one of her legs that was broken in several places). She is going to be fine but its going to take a lot of physical therapy and rehab. I sure wish this family could catch a break.
Tuesday: 4 mile easy run. Beautiful weather for a change so I pushed the pace.
Wednesday: See Monday. Minus the last paragraph. :)
Thursday: Hill repeats (in the Vibrams; still WINNING!) with the J-man. 6 mile bike. Took it easy since I am a day late in the week doing a 'workout'. Long run on Saturday (11 miles on tap) so I wanted to not wear out the legs. KENYAN WAY TRAINING IS BACK!! So so so happy about that!!!
