Monday: 3.55 miles @ 9:16 (before work-> weights)
Tuesday: 45 minute elliptical (abs)
Wednesday: 4.1 mile walk at work + before class (weights)
Thursday: 5 miles @ 9:12 (before work-> abs)
Saturday: 8.2 miles @ 9:03 (this was a SPEEDY training run...I need to watch it in the future but my friend and I went out fast and just kept with it since it was a shorter run-> weights)
|New routine- Starbucks after my Saturday training runs! This week a Venti Skinny Peppermint Mocha. |
Best recovery drink EVER!
Sunday: 6 miles @ 9: 13 (abs). My hamstrings were pretty sore from the fast run Saturday, but I am really going to try to stick to the long recovery runs my training plan has in place on Sundays for as long as I can.
Total: 22.75 running + 8.3 walking (I am logging my walking so that when my mileage gets higher I can use walking in substitution of runs when I am sore).
I am starting to slowly increase my carb intake and focus on properly fueling for my long runs (with recovery food as well). When I go to the store today I am going to stock up on more larabars (I use these as fuel during long runs), trail mix, bananas and gels (to try out).
It was a good first week! Have a great week-> T-10 days until winter break for me:)!
