The beginning of Week 3 was met with freezing temps & some bad weather.. but by the end, it ended up being a great week.
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – The work-out with the group was meant to be a 1 mile tempo run, then 200m repetition repeats. I had 3-4 miles on the schedule this day. I was actually looking forward to this speedwork, even though it was SO cold & it had been snowing most of the day. Alas, group got cancelled so I ended up getting home safely & did about a half hour of PiYo Sweat. PiYo is no joke.
Wednesday – For the first time ever, I got up before work & headed downtown to Gold’s Gym. I didn’t get the timing down right, but I at least did 2 miles on the dreadmill.
Thursday – I always look forward to Thursdays. I got in 4 miles around Carnegie with my favorite running friends. It was light, easy & fun, & I’m pretty sure we laughed the whole way. The temps were in the high 30s & we were LOVING it. You know you’re a runner when you get excited about 37 degree temps.. 🙂
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Long run! When I left my house, it didn’t seem that bad out. It was drizzling a little bit, so I was glad I brought a light jacket with me. Once I got to the Southside, the wind was WICKED & it was freezing. I was regretting not bringing my buff or gloves with me. But, once we got started I warmed up & even thought I was too warm for most of the run. I got 6 miles in & it was great! Love running with my group more than anything & I’m so glad to be back spending my Saturday mornings with them.
Sunday – Today I have plans to do some yoga. My body needs some good stretching & I would really like to work on my balance!
Week 3 was a success! How did everyone else’s training week go? I know the weather sucks (at least in Pittsburgh) but if you got out there, that is a huge accomplishment!!
