What can I say about winter at this point except I am over it. I am done logging onto Facebook and seeing people update the weather like the rest of us don't know what is going on. I am tired of seeing pictures of peoples car temperatures. I am flat out just tired of winter. You will never hear me complain about the heat, but these cold temps. are killing my runs. This week was all treadmill workouts, and I can not stand the treadmill.
So this is how this week went down for me:
MONDAY: 3 miles 26:34 and a shoulder workout. One thing I have noticed is even though Monday, Wednesday, and Friday's are usually only 3 miles, my casual pace had dropped in this short amount of time on this plan. I am now going sub 9 minute miles and I am hardly breaking a sweat. I feel really good on these runs and I am now starting to believe that if you work on the short runs the long runs will really benefit.
TUESDAY: My workout called for a hill workout, but I had free passes to go see McFarland. You can read my review that is a few post's back. I highly recommend you go see this movie. I am already putting this in my top 10 list.
WEDNESDAY: 3 miles in 26:38. I also did a arm and ab workout.
THURSDAY: 30 minute tempo run. I broke the run up into 10 minute sections. I ran the first 10 minutes at a 9:13 pace then I dropped down to a 7:10 pace for the next ten minutes and finished back at a 9:13 pace. Shins were on fire for this run, and I am really dreading doing speed workouts on the treadmill.
FRIDAY: REST DAY
SATURDAY:I had all plans of waking up and doing a 5K at race pace. Unfortunately on Friday when I was driving home from work my car basically kicked the bucket. Saturday morning was spent sitting at the car dealership buying a new car. By the time I left the dealership in my new ride, the roads were a mess and cars were sliding everywhere. I couldn't even make it up my hill to get home. I had to park down the road and walk. Not the day I had in mind.
SUNDAY (Today): Even though my plan calls for a rest day, I am going to do some cross training. Nothing major just some small workouts I can do around the house.
Hopefully next week I don't run into any issues like this week, and I can get in my entire workout.
How did your week go?
