Towpath Half Marathon Training : Week 4
This week flew by like none other. I traveled a bit for work, which was great for my running! I managed to have one of my best weeks of the past few months, so I would call it a success! Here's a lot at how the week went down:
5 miles / 45:40 / 9:07 pace
Yoga / 45:00
Lunchtime yoga as usual! I was getting some headaches when we did any poses upside down (like downward facing dog) for long periods of time, so I took it easy for parts of the class.
3 miles / 26:15 / 8:45 pace
1 mile cool down / 10:00 / 10:00 pace
Morning speed workout on the treadmill. I did one mile repeats of gradually picking up the pace, starting at 6.0 and increasing speed .5mph every quarter mile, with a mile cool-down. Ended up being a great workout!
Tae-Bo / 30:00
Has anyone else ever done Tae-Bo before? It used to be one of my favorite exercsises to do growing up, and I decided to pull out my old DVD for a workout! If you haven't given it a try, do it. It's really fun!
The weather was really weird in the morning and was raining on and off, so I headed out for a quick workout while it was "off". It was really humid out, but nice and breezy. I went around my neighborhood for a hilly and fun run!
Sunday10 miles / 1:35:28 / 9:32 pace
My legs felt so good on this run, but the weather was awful! There were storms all afternoon, so it was really humid and warm out in the morning. I powered through for my long run, but I wish it was a nicer day! Hopefully race day will have better weather. Dan and I spent the rest of the day picking up furniture and a shed for the house, moving furniture between rooms and cleaning, so by the end of the day I was exhausted! Definitely a productive weekend!
