Just the Facts

Monday:  4 mile run before heading to the movies (Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides).  So hot out.  I hated every minute of it.  Legs were just tired.  Oh and it was hot.  Did I mention that already?

Tuesday:  Honestly I didnt want to do anything.  I woke up with my legs just hurting and they hurt all day.  As in when I would get up from my chair at work to walk anywhere it took a while before things 'worked' right.  My legs were just overall dead.  My hill partner had cancelled out early enough that I packed my bag for the gym.  By the time 4pm rolled around I wanted to just go home and sleep.  But I made a deal with myself; just go on to the gym and if you dont feel better at any point you can leave. 

Guess who never left? 

This girl. 

However, I had to play a game with myself to get the 5 miles done today.  They were broken up into 5 sets of 1 mile each.  I ran a mile on the treadmill, then hopped off for either 2 machines or sets with free weights (depending on which I either did 3or 4 sets of either 8/10/20 reps).  Get back on treadmill for another mile.  Repeat.  Repeat.  Repeat.

Wednesday:  Quasi speed workout (treadmill):
  • 1 mile warm up
  • 1 mile at 10:30
  • 1 mile at 10:00 (which honestly is GMP, if not lower)
  • 1/2 mile at 9:30
  • 1/2 mile at 9:15
  • Then I did a tabata session
    • 20sec/10sec x 8 at 8:30pace
  • 3 min walk to cool down
Treadmill read: 5.11 miles
    Thursday: Scheduled 4 miles easy through the hood.

    Friday:  Rest day

    Saturday:  Scheduled 13 miles.  The road to Chicago continues....  :)
