Training Week One

The first week of my official training is OVER. This weekend, the Blue Band went to the Temple game, so I was unable to run the weekend, but finished all the other workouts. Here's a summary of what I did this week:

Monday: 30 min on bike, 1 hour lifting, 20 minutes abs/stretching

Tuesday:3.34 miles: 27:00, 8:04/mile

Wednesday: Treadmill intervals
1 mile warmup at speed 6, 5x400 going to speed 7.5, reducing to speed 5.5 for 400 m in between. 1 mile cooldown at speed 6

Thursday: 4.80 miles: 39:05, 8:07/mile
1/2 hour lifting

Friday: Central York football game
Saturday: Penn State vs. Temple game, Upper Dublin Spectacle in Sound festival

Here is my schedule for this coming week:

3 m run
30 min tempo

A little motivation for the week:
"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement." -PRE
