Monday: Slow 4.5 mile run/walk as recovery from Sunday's long run
Tuesday: 5.5 miles running, including 5 x 1000 meter intervals, and a 2 mile walk
Wednesday: 45 minutes of yoga, 15 minutes of abs and push-ups
Thursday: 6 mile run, 4 at tempo pace
Friday: P90X Plyometrics for one hour, and 15 minutes of abs and push-ups
Saturday: 1.5 mile slow easy run before jumping into the lake
Sunday: 20 mile long run
Mileage: 40 miles for the week, with 37 of that being running. A little more than I'm used to!
Next week's goals are to hit my 3 key workouts again, which are:
Key #1: 10-20 min. warm up, 3 x 1600 meters @ 8:11 (1 min. RI) and 10 minute cooldown
Key #2: 2 miles easy, 3 @ 8:44, 1 mile easy (tempo run)
Key #3: 18 miles @ 10:29 pace
Other than that, I'd like to get in more yoga this week, and get back to doing push-ups 3x per week.
Plus, I want to try actually swimming in the lake, instead of just floating on a noodle. It's so beautiful, and I know it will start getting too cold before I know it!
|Post-run, pre-swim on Saturday with hubs.|
Ok, I'm putting it on here so I have to stick to it: yoga x2, and push-ups x3!
Has anyone tried actually swimming in a lake (laps, etc.)?
I will happily do a breaststroke for a while, but I have yet to try really swimming (aka, putting on goggles). Has anyone had luck swimming in a lake instead of a pool/ocean? Tips please?!
