I am feeling really good right now. Actually, I am pretty amazed at how well my body is handling how much I am running. I am fairly confident it is from the things besides running I have been doing – weights & yoga.
47.1 miles for the week
5 miles EASY, 43:03, 8:36 pace
legs (and whole body) were sore from skiing Sunday!!!
8 miles, 1:01:45, 7:43 pace
ran with my new running buddy!
5.26 miles, 43:52, 8:21 pace
legs were tired but better than I thought
75 minute hot yoga class
9 miles on the treadmill – 5 x mile, plus warm up & cool down
1:11:11 total time, 7:55 average
1.5 miles warm up – 13:12
5 x mile with .25 recovs
1.5 mile cool down – 14:10 (walked 2 min then ran easy)
5.76 miles, 46:29, 8:06 pace
my sleep app woke me up at 4:50, so I got up and had a quick cup of coffee before I ran – it’s so much easier to run a decent pace after coffee! ;) ran very relaxed – I am amazed at how good my legs are feeling right now.
75 min hot yoga
14 miles, 2:01:09, 8:39 pace
lots and lots of big hills (even walked a short amount up the 2 BIGGEST hills)
considered this more of a “time on your feet run” than aiming to hit a certain distance – but 14 miles AND 2 hours was my minimum.
