Another Sunday is coming to a close which means another week closer to SeaWheeze. Monday’s easy run was absolutely brutal. My body was still tired from the previous weekend’s activities, so after riding the struggle bus, I gave up and walked. Wednesday was speed day and the intervals jumped from 30 seconds of work to 1 minute of work with 2 minutes walk break. Let me tell you, 1 minute is much, much longer than 30 seconds but I managed to stay consistent in the 4:30 min/km range for three rounds.
Yesterday was long run day, which I incorporated into a local race. I’ll have a full recap to come later in the week. I ran about 1.25km to the race start since it was so close to my house and then completed the 10k. I originally planned to keep it slow and steady like the rest of my long runs lately, but Shannon challenged me to push a little harder. We ran 10-1 intervals for an average pace of 7:36min/km.
This definitely has me thinking that I should continue running 10-1 intervals for my long runs and for SeaWheeze so I don’t end up burning out.
Me dying while I sprint to the finish, while Shannon looks perfect lol.
It was a beautiful day for a run! I’ve never trained for a half marathon before… I’ve got to say, I’m enjoying the long runs way more than I thought. Today had its sights set on 13 k- and hitting that on my watch was a pretttaay great feeling!
(Mary is seriously crushing her half training. Related: I miss running with her on a regular basis!)
Did you get out to run today?
