Weekly Workout Roundup

on May 30, 2012

Monday: Off – my body was actually surprisingly sore and tired from the Warrior Dash!

Tuesday: Tempo Interval – 4 miles

3 x 10 minutes at about 8:40 pace, walking 2 min between and cool down of about .7 mi

Wednesday:  Off

Thursday: Tempo – 5 miles

4 miles at 8:30 pace, 1/2 mile warm up and cool down at 10:00 pace

Friday: Sills – 4 miles

2 min intervals, alternating level at 6.5mph and ladder incline (3% up to 7% then back down) at 6.0.  Man oh man.  Hills are no joke!  The good thing about them is you can really feel the strength and toning happening 🙂

Saturday: Cross train – 20 mile bike

Liesurely bike ride – rented bikes and biked down to the Alexandria water front, then relax and read by the water for a couple hours, then back up to DC

Sunday: LSD – 7 mi

Ran outside…it was 87 degrees…and I didn’t bring water.  Not the smartest.  But I still managed a 9:40 pace which I’m happy with at this stage in the game!  Plus it’s important to get the miles in outside, so it was worth it 🙂  Plus, the Boy, pitying my lack of foresight in the water department, bought me one of those cool hand held water bottles to make sure I don’t die during these long runs!  🙂

    Rumor has it the bike length was only 19.66 miles. Is this true?
