This has been a pretty good week. I ended the week with an eleven mile run at race pace, and I felt great. It was my longest run so far this year and fastest 11-miler. The My Asics App changed things around a little after seeing I was running faster than expected. Now it seems even more challenging, since it wanted me to run a 8:14 pace today, and I managed 8:25, which is really good for me. I think that’s about what it had before the app recalculated and made the adjustments. Here’s what the My Asics had scheduled for this week:I’m also continuing with Insanity Max:30. It’s been tough but I think it’s really helped build my fitness level. I feel stronger and I think it’s helped with my endurance too. I felt pretty strong on my 11 miler. I can’t believe there’s only one week left of the program. Anyway, here’s what I did this week:
Monday: Running rest day. I did day 43 of Insanity Max:30 – Max Out Cardio. I maxed out at 9:38, a minute and four seconds improvement!
Wednesday: Ran 8.5 miles
Thursday: Got day 46 of Insanity Max:30 – Max Out Strength done.
Friday: Ran 3 miles on the treadmill and then did Max:30 Friday Fright Round 2. The side to side floor hops are still a killer. I maxed out at 6:27, a 5 sec improvement.
Saturday: Rest Day.
Sunday: Ran 11 miles. Felt great!
How’d your week go? Here’s to a great last week of February!

Great job! Love the photos, but I still wish I could steal some of your sunshine and warmth.
Thanks! Hope the sunshine comes to you soon!
I’ve never used the My Asics App. That is really neat they changed your training paces based on how you’ve been doing. I’ll need to look into that app.
Yeah, I think it’s pretty cool. You can also look at it on your laptop/desktop here: https://my.asics.com/us/en-us.
