Training Rundown- Week 6 MS Run The US

HUMPDAY! I am still re-adjusting to my running schedule and last week was a bit of a disaster in terms of half of my runs were on the treadmill and I had a hard time hitting my tempo pace on Wednesday. I still got my mileage in, but it was not pretty. OH WELL. Time to move on from it! 


MONDAY: 1.5 warm-up; 4 x 1200 @ 5:20; 1.5 cool-down (actual: 1.0 warm-up; 4 x 1200 (5:20, 5:20, 5:20, 5:20); 1.0 cool-down


TUESDAY: 6 miles easy on the treadmill @ 9:55

WEDNESDAY: 1.5 warm-up; 7 miles Tempo @ 8:20; 1.5 cool-down-> 10 miles total. This was hard on the treadmill and the gym that I was at in Denver just had a different vibe. Change is never easy folks. 


THURSDAY: 6 miles easy; (actual: 7 miles easy @ 9:40); Went a bit too fast on this one, but felt so good to run outside! 


FRIDAY: Rest Day. I was so exhausted from traveling and driving home on Thursday, that I decided to take the day off. 60 minute CoreReformer class at lunch.

Saturday: 10 miles easy @ 10:06 (actual: 10.25 1, 025' gain).


Sunday: 8 miles easy @ 9:54 with 627' gain
