Sunday Runday: Week of 1/23 (Boston Training Week #6)


Wowza. I am way behind on my training log posting game. So, here’s some catch up! Thank God for running watches and that I kept up to date on Instagram…

Monday, 1/23:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Easy 6 miles)

What I Did: Knew Tuesday was not going to be great day for running, let alone a workout due to scheduling stuff (was at the hospital at 6AM until class in the afternoon, a meeting at 5PM, and then a meeting with a potential wedding caterer at 6:30PM, with bedtime around 9:30-10PMish!), so opted to move my hard workouts up a day earlier this week. Ended up having a ridiculously long day at the hospital on Monday, though-we are supposed to only be at the hospital until 5PM each day, but we went into an OR case at 4:45PM and there was still paperwork to be completed for the next day, so I didn’t end up leaving until 7PM. :O I was worried because the gym closes at 9PM so I skimped on the warm-up, butΒ still got it done because I’m like that:

1 mile warm-up

400 (1:36), 800 (3:10), 1200 (4:45), 1600 (6:13), 1200 (4:43), 800 (3:01), 400 (1:27) with 400 rest on the treadmill

1.25 mile cool-down? (This is what happens when I don’t write things down/don’t use my watch wahhh)

8 miles total

Tuesday, 1/24:

(What I Was Supposed to Do:Β Speed 400, 800, 1200, 1600, 1200, 800, 400 with 400 recoveryΒ (5k goal of 19:30-20:00))

What I Did: OFF

Wednesday, 1/25:

(What I Was Supposed to Do:Β OFF)

What I Did: WasΒ not feeling this workout at all. I’ve been feeling pretty tired in general lately, to be honest, and my legs, mind, and heart just weren’t as excited to do this tempo as they usually are. Part of it is just feeling tired from long hours, I think, but part of it is definitely getting sick of running on the treadmill. Still aΒ very good pace if you ask me! Totally skimped on the cool-down because a quick visit to Phil in the library turned into an hour long conversation about our days and then I was too cold to run back home! πŸ˜€

2 mile warm-up

7 mile tempo in 48:21 (6:54 pace; 7:04, 7:02, 7:03, 6:59, 6:52, 6:48, 6:30) on the treadmill

0.5 mile cool-down
