Workout Recap: 10/8-10/13

After the Ragnar Relay, I took 2 days off to relax and rest. It felt great, but I was more than ready to get moving again.

Tuesday, 10/8
6 miles

Thursday, 10/10
It was a very rainy and cold day, so I did a workout in the basement.

Repeated for 40 minutes
50 jumping jacks
30 high knees
10 burpees
10 walking push-ups
30 sit-ups
15 tricep dips
1 minute plank

Since I hadn’t done any strength training in a while, this hurt the next day.

Friday, 10/11
Yasso 800s on the treadmill

1 mile warm up, 6×800 m with 400 m recovery jog in between, 1 mile cool down. (800m equals .5 mile or two times around the track and 400m is .25 mile or one time around the track).

3:32
3:29
3:26
3:24
3:22

Total of 6.5 miles.

I’ll be taking it easy this week because I have a big weekend coming up! The Runner’s World Half and Festival where I will be running the hat trick (5k and 10k on Saturday and a Half marathon on Sunday)!!! I’m so excited!

Do you have a race coming up?
Do you like speed work?
