The summer term for parks & rec started this week, so back to two dance classes - I really love both but it can be tough to balance my other things around those. Pretty happy with >15 miles of running for the week, though!
Monday: Cargo bike 1.2 miles + speedwork run 5.25 miles (12:29 pace, 64* and dusk, late evening, 172 spm)
Run goal: wu, 2 @ 11:17, 1 easy, 2 @ 11:17, cooldown
Actual: 0.1 warm up, 11:14, 11:09, 15:46, 11:58, 11:23, 0.15 cool down
Tuesday: Tap class (60 min)
Wednesday: Bike 1.2 miles + ballet class (90 min) + core (5 min)
Thursday: Restorative yoga (20 min)
Friday am: Swim 600 yards
Friday pm: Fartlek run 4.05 miles (13:02 pace, 70*, late evening, 172 spm) + core (5 min)
The scheduled runs are getting long! And I was just not up to doing a lot, but figured any run is better than nothing, and some speed (fartlek) is better than none.
Saturday: Bike 3.0 miles
Part of the biking was to the park, where there was supposed to be a zumba class, but the instructor didn't show up!
Sunday: Long run 6.2 miles (13:23 pace, 66*, mid morning, 176 spm) + Nike app strength (15 min)
I've been departing from my running plan (ok, in more ways than this) by not worrying about pace on my long runs - I know my endurance is lacking relative to my speed, and I'll work on that as I move into half marathon training after this 5k training cycle. However, I felt good as I neared the end of this run, so on the last full mile (which also started off downhill - that helped too!), I decided to go for a fast finish, and was able to manage what should have (per the plan) been my pace for the full run - 11:47. Good progress towards being able to keep up a faster pace for an entire long run.
