Sept 3 - 9: RLRF Half Training Week 7/16 & Stronglifts 5x5 Week 5/12


Monday am: Folding bike 7.8 miles - a trial for commuting to work! 
Monday pm: SL 5x5 workout A (30 min) + restorative yoga (12 min)

To do a test run for biking to work, I biked to/from the transit center where I'd get on the train; then drove to the transit center where I'd get off the train (it runs only weekdays during rush hour, and transit was on a "Sunday" schedule for Labor Day) and rode from there to work and back. (The drive vs train cut off a bit at the beginning of the work-section - in all the commute will actually be 8 miles of biking round trip.)

Tuesday: Restorative yoga (20 min)

Wednesday: Folding bike 1.35 miles + run 2.4 miles (13:31 pace, 72* and dark, late evening, 168 spm) + restorative yoga (10 min)

The bike ride was just a short one around the neighborhood, to try riding with cargo on the rack, with my work laptop, etc., and make sure it felt secure and stable. 

Thursday: Tempo run 4.05 miles (12:23 pace, 82* and dusk, mid evening, 170 spm) + SL 5x5 workout B (30 min) + restorative yoga (10 min)

Run goal: wu, 3 @ 11:32, cd
Actual: 0.75 warm up, 11:32, 11:22, 11:31, 0.30 cool down

Friday pm: Restorative yoga (20 min)

Saturday: Long run 10.25 miles (14:24 pace, 64*, mid day, 162 spm) + restorative yoga (10 min)

This run suuuucked. Lots of walking by the last ~third.
