But first, the recap!
Training Goals – 1/4 – 1/10
Monday: rest – SUCCESS! You guys, I totally rock those rest days. I am a CHAMP!
Tuesday: weights + elliptical – SUCCESS! 45 minutes of weights + abs & 20 minutes on the elliptical
Wednesday: run – 5 miles – partial SUCCESS! I ran 3.15 miles instead of 5, because I am a pansy & it was cold & windy.
Thursday: weights + elliptical – partial FAIL! I took a rest day (which I am going to address in this week’s goals, BUT I made the important part of this workout up.
Friday: run – 5 miles – partial SUCCESS! Again, I didn’t hit the distance (damn you, cold & wind!), but I did run 2.65 miles.
Saturday: swim lessons + bike if I’m not dead after my swim coach is done with me. – SUCCESS! I did a 30 minute swimming lesson, and then later that afternoon, I hit the gym for 45 minutes of weights + abs & 20 minutes on the recumbent bike.
Sunday: run – 8 miles – SUCCESS! I ran 8.22 miles, and although I am still not as fast as I’d like, this time I came in at under 12 minute miles (and since I didn’t have my auto-pause on, some of that time was waiting for red lights). I also didn’t need nearly as many walk/cough breaks. Yay!
Training Goals – 1/11 – 1/17
Monday: weights + elliptical. I realized that although I really like take Mondays as my rest day, I inevitably take Thursdays, too. By Thursday, I’m wiped out from the week of work + school + workouts, and just want to chillax when I get home. SO – I am going to start the week out right by hitting the gym Monday before work (see you at 5:30 AM kick-ass neighbor).
Tuesday: Terwilliger run (4.2 miles)
Wednesday: Tempo run (5 miles)
Thursday: Rest day
Friday: Swim + run (3-5 miles)
Saturday: Bike (15-20 miles)
Sunday: Long run (9-10 miles)
