So I ran my simulated 5k race on Sunday, and it went well. It was on a treadmill, so I don’t consider it to be the same as outside running. But I still managed to best all my treadmills runs since I made the switch to indoors, and I bested my time in the real 5k I ran back on Mother’s Day. It also marked the half way point of the first… half….of my training plan.
I guess I could have just said I’m a quarter of the way through. In any case, I’m feeling like training is going better than I expected at this point. This week was a little chaotic, but still productive.
Here are the results for week seven-
WEEK 7 RESULTS
Sun: 5k Race-COMPLETED. I hit an average pace in the 11’s, which is by far my best so far this year.
Mon: Rest- COMPLETED
Tue: 4.5 mile run- COMPLETED.
Wed: 3 mile run or cross-training- COMPLETED. I opted to run this time instead of the cross-training due to some traveling I have planned for later this week.
Thu: 4.5 mile run- COMPLETED. Due to being out of town the rest of the week, I went ahead and ran 7 miles today, and will make Sunday a rest day.
Sat: 50 Minute Cross Training. The hotel we’re staying at had a gym, so my husband and I got some workout time in this morning. It was more like 30 minutes than 50, but still glad we got it in.
AND HERE ARE MY OBJECTIVES FOR WEEK 8-
Sun: 7 mile Run
Tue: 4.5 mile run
Wed: 3 mile run or cross-training
Thu: 4.5 mile run
Sat: 50 minute cross-training
There’s plenty of time to train, and whether you’re an experienced runner or a beginner, I’d love to see you come do this race with me
