Week five of training-in four words:
This week of training went pretty well! Got a fartlek run, tempo run, and progression run despite the polar vortex striking in Richmond again. I didn’t get to squeeze in my long run this week. That’s a problem since the half marathon I am training for is less than six weeks away!
I am really starting to feel my legs come back under me. I still feel sore if I run more than 35 minutes or do a workout but I feel better when I am doing all of these things. The good news is that the soreness is no long delibitating either; I can actually run the next day and not feel like my legs are 3,000 pound tree trunks. Now they only feel like they are 1,000 pounds ;-).
So that’s my week—in four words or less. If you notice… six runs happened this week, not five. A first for the new year!
Please keep your comments coming! I love hearing about your runs. Some favs from last week:
- A Change of Pace: Basement workouts: treadmill & bike
- Run for the Pizza: a slip and slide! <– this was me all week, too!
- Rural Running Redhead: too fast for treadmill <–hilarious!
- Daily Cup of Ashee Jojo: impulsive leg work = sore
I want to hear from YOU.
Tell me about your best/worst/favorite/coldest run this week –in four words or less. GO!
ALSO, how do you stay motivated to train when it is cold?
