Week 5: Workouts
This week was rough. As mentioned in last week's post, I was feeling pretty tired. I kept going, however, and listed to Jan's advice. I didn't get as many miles in this week, but I made them worth it.
Monday: 4 miles and core work
Tuesday: 2.5 miles w/stadiums
Wednesday: 4 miles w/hill intervals
Thursday: off (soooo sore!)
Friday: 6 miles
Saturday: core work and strength
Total: 16.5 miles
I'm happy with it and even though the mileage is less, I feel it in my legs. I have never before actually trained on hills. I ran a lot of stadiums in college, but never hills. My quads were incredibly sore the day after the hill sprints so I know I needed them. And the mix-up in the routine made my 6 mile run on Friday quite pleasant.
