Re-cap of this week’s workouts

I’m training for another half marathon in June, the Seattle Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon. It’s cool because I’ll be getting another medal once I finish the Seattle Half, the Pacific Peaks Medal. It should be cool to add to my collection! ๐Ÿ™‚ So I’m still not following a particular workout program except the running one, Hal Higdon’s intermediate half marathon schedule. I’m having fun incorporating different Beachbody programs along with running.

Well, after my long run last Sunday, I decided to workout with my husband and did P90X3’s Decelerator Workout. I was a little concerned with my knee after my run on Sunday, but it felt fine when I was working out. I think it was just the new band I got. My knee has felt fine ever since I’ve stopped using it. But Decelerator is a great total body workout. I didn’t do all of the pull-ups ย and chin ups since we only have one pull-up bar but still got a great workout. There was some squats, push-ups,ย lunges and of course other moves.

On Tuesday, I ran five miles. I’m taking it easy on the runs now, unless it specifies in the schedule to run differently since I read about the Jack Daniels training paces. You can read my previous blog post about it here.

On Wednesday, the plan said to do 9 x 400 at 5k pace. I don’t have a track nearby so I did my laps at the nearby soccer fields. I felt like I gotย a good workout. I did a lap and then walked a little in between laps.

On Thursday, Hal Higdon’s schedule was to do 3 miles plus strength. I did Focus T25’s Beta Rip’t Circuit and was planning to do 3 miles but didn’t get to it since my husband came home late. It’s hard to run during the day since there’s no one to watch the kids. But Beta Rip’t Circuit is a good strength workout, since weights are used.

Today, I decided to do Focus T25’s Dynamic Core workout. It’s a great workout and still tough for me at parts. My core still needs work.

Then this evening I made up the run I missed yesterday.

Tomorrow is a rest day and Sunday is supposed to be a race day, so I’ll be attempting race pace on Sunday.

Did you get your workouts in this week?
