Goal miles this week: 67
Actual miles this week: 65.5
Monday: 11.06 easy where the legs felt excessively heavy
Tuesday: 9.61 where the legs still were feeling a bit icky
Wednesday: 11.28 miles with my ipod. I hadn't ran with my ipod in 4 years and I think that I'm going to starting doing this again every so often. This is the day that I realized I was being a bit fat do-do head by stressing myself out a bit too much.
Thursday: 9.07 miles with 5x1600's. 6:19, 6:16, 6:15, 6:11, 6:17. These weren't easy, but I felt strong.
Friday: 9.64 easy recovery miles
Saturday: 14.84 miles. I planned to do 16 here, but had to modify. The day was extremely busy leaving the only time to run at 3 pm. All I can say is icky. It was so hot and humid I would have been able to cut the air with a knife. Oh and I also got bit by a dog in the calf somewhere around mile 5.
Goals for WEEK 6
Wake up early. This week my schedule was flipped and I ended up having to run in the evenings and work in the mornings and I hated it. It is so much harder to get in a quality workout after work. For week 6 I need to get up as early as possible to get in quality miles before the heat and humidity kill me.
Run a 5k. Thursday I am doing a 5k. I don't often race this distance and maybe only do one 5k a year. Goal is to break 20 minutes, but there will be no resting lead up and this race is more so being considered a short tempo for me. Just want to have fun.
3 lifting sessions at the gym.
69 miles. I am hoping to get in a 20 miler and maybe some type of incline training. There are no hills in Chicago, and "inclines" here are kind of a joke so I'm not sure how I'm going to go about this yet.
Bust out my baking skilz. Big surprise family event this weekend were I am on pastry duty.
