I haven't been so great at blogging about my Vancouver training this week...such a slacker! Bad Blogger Girl! But I have been getting my runs in. I promise! Everything has been on the treadmill, which I am so loving having. All of my excuses to avoid weekday runs have evaporated! Now I can put on an episode of Gossip Girl and hit my stride. Before I know it - I'm done my run and still felt like I got my TV time in :)
So here's my week so far:
Tuesday - 5K
Wednesday 3K Hills. This was supposed to be 2.5k - 3x400m hills. Due to poor planning, I did a half k warmup and then bumped the incline up to 6% for half a k then did half a k recovery (which may have been overkill in hindsight) and repeated this again. The last repeat, I will admit, I only went up to 4% incline. I was friggin exhausted! I also cut that repeat short because I was nearing 3K and was seriously running out of steam. Got it done, though. Next week, I'll come back stronger for my next "hill" session.
Thursday - 5.5K steady. This really exhausted me, for some reason and near the end I had to keep lowering my speed.
Not a stellar week by any means. The fact that i can't even recall details from Tuesdays run is a testament to this. I think my crazy busy week has caught up with me and I just really need a night off and an early bedtime.
Tomorrow I am running 10K LSD solo. On purpose. JS is out of town and I want to test out a feature on my Garmin that is better done alone. I'll give more details next week ;)
