Hippie Chick Half Training Week 2

Workouts

Monday: Run 2.55 miles (12:37 pace)
Plan: 2 - 3 miles easy (13:00) / about 30 minutes
Actual: 12:41, 12:34, 12:33

Thursday: Run 3.0 miles (12:30 pace)
Plan: 4 miles, including 2 x 1600 at 11:15
Actual: Warm up - 1 @ 13:19. Interval 1 - 0.5 @11:14. Recovery - 0.5 @ 13:23. Interval 2 - 0.5 @ 11:12. Cool down - 0.5 @ 12:29. Shortened the intervals, but hit the paces. It's a been a long week; that's what I was mentally capable of doing today.

Friday: Treadmill run 2.35 miles (11:58 pace)
Plan: 2 - 3 miles easy (13:00) / about 30 minutes
Actual: Have to mix things up to not get bored on the treadmill:
Incline 0.5% - 2 minutes each 4.8, 5.0, 5.2, 5.4, 5.2, 5.0, 4.8
Incline 1.5% - 2 minutes each 4.8, 5.0, 5.2, 5.4, 5.2, 5.0, 4.8

Total running: 7.9 miles

Totally failed to do a long run this week (7 - 8 miles scheduled). 61 hours worked, plus parents in town briefly, plus trying to start preparing for moving in a few weeks (took first load of stuff to Goodwill). Eh. Oh well. I'm somehow doing the opposite of the weekend warrior thing. It's a stress reliever on week days to take a break and get outside for a run, but a stress causer on the weekends to think of anything that I "have" to get done.

Next week's plan

Tuesday: 2 - 3 miles easy (13:00)
Thursday: 5 miles with 3 at tempo (12:00)
Friday or Saturday: 2 - 3 miles easy (13:00)
Sunday: 7 - 8 miles long (13:30)
