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?
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
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: Scheduled 13 miles. The road to Chicago continues.... :)
