This week went pretty well. I decided to jump into Hal Higdon’s 10k Intermediate training plan. My 10K is on October 25th, so I’m on week 4 of the training plan. After my virtual Beat the Blerch 10k, I decided to take a rest from running and did PiYo Core on Monday.
On Tuesday, I ran 4.5 miles.
Wednesday’s workout was 9x400s. This was the first time I’ve done intervals on the treadmill. I ran a 400 and then walked about half a lap. After a while, I thought that it was probably too much walking and shortened the walking a little. I guess it wasn’t too bad running on the treadmill.
On Thursday, I ran Running with Ollie’s Blog Virtual 4 Mile Fun Run and Scavenger Hunt. Here were the items on the Scavenger Hunt:
1. Selfie 2. Ran by some beautiful flowers. 3. Something unique was the Max Train crossing. I got stopped at the crossing today. 4. The squirrel made me smile. He’s a little hard to see. 5. Record of my run.
I thought it was a fun thing to do and celebrate a blogger’s big 4 – 0 birthday. Also, she’s giving away some awesome prizes!
On Friday, I ran two miles on the treadmill.
Saturday was a Rest Day.
I love how Smashrun shows me my stats and lists all my similar runs. This was my fastest 3mi ever, fastest 5k ever, fastest run in 3 months, fastest mile split in 3 months, and fastest km split in 3 months. Smashrun syncs the data from my Garmin.
How did your week go?
