Buffalo Creek Training Week 5
...and just like that, I'm at the half way point of training. Things continued to go well this week, with a perfect speed workout to start off the week and another 10 miler to end the week. In between these two workouts I took a quick trip to Baltimore. Overall- a successful week. Here's a look at what I did:
7 miles / 8:24 pace
5 miles / 9:20 pace
Easy run before work. I actually talked about this day in a post last week if you want to see what I ate and did all day long!
Stand-Up Paddleboarding / 2 hours
It was such a beautiful day out, so Dan and I headed out to the lake to do some kayaking and paddleboarding. It was my first time going out on my own board, and it was so much fun!
3 miles / 9:46 pace
I went on a nice and easy run around my neighborhood before work. It's looking so fall-y outside and I'm loving it :)
I headed to Baltimore with Alexa for Natural Product Expo East on Thursday after work, and we got plenty of exercise by walking all over the city and expo. I ended up with just under 9 miles for the day! I'll definitely be talking more about the expo in an upcoming post, but it was such a fun trip with lots of yummy food that we tried out.
4 miles / 9:32 pace
Since we were still in Baltimore and staying in Fells Point, I decided to go on an easy run around Patterson Park. It's a really nice park with lots of paths, parks, and a little lake. I could have easily done 10 more miles (especially if I ran by the harbor) but kept it short.
10 miles / 9:41 paceSteffany as she ended her own 10 mile run!
Do you like to run when visiting new cities?
What is your least favorite speed workout?
Oooooh 800s HURT LIKE A BITCH. Nicely done, Gretch! Woohooo!!! I hate all speed work. Actually, I hate it but I love it too. I love the feeling I have afterward when I nailed the paces. I feel like the queen of the world! You are doing AMAZING! I'm so excited for you! 5 weeks!ReplyDelete
I feel the same way about it...love the feeling after but it sucks while you're running!ReplyDelete
I even don't know what is better for me: to take a bus or to walk. I use bus after work when I need to go to a gym. My training lasts for an hour and the walk from work to home lasts the same. The road by bus is 30 minutes. Sometimes it's better to walk then drive to a gym and to save some extra time for other things. Some reviews on https://rewardedessays.com say that a lot of people make same decision today and save their nerves and money.ReplyDelete
