BSIM Training Week 8

Last week was definitely a building week for my training. The miles became longer but my effort was easier.

Monday – Fartlek (4 min, 3 min, 2 min, 1 min) – 8.1 miles!

  • A system of training for distance runners in which the terrain and pace are continually varied to eliminate boredom and enhance psychological aspects of conditioning.

  • Find out more about fartleks here.

Tuesday – Hopped on the treadmill and got in an easy 4 miles.

Wednesday – 5.5 miles outside.

Thursday – 6 miles TEMPO!

  • 2 miles warm up
  • 3 miles tempo pace
  • 1 mile cool down

Friday – rest day.

Saturday – 12 miles long run, 8:53 /mile felt good!
