Mountains 2 Beach Training Week 9

Monday 2/25

It seemed like a good day to do two workouts… FlyBarre in the morning and track at night. And it was! FlyBarre was tough but track was tougher. The workout was 8×400 + 400 easy followed by 4×200 + 200 easy – 7.7 miles total including warm up and cool down.

Tuesday 2/26

Tired legs but I wanted to get some miles in. In the morning, I warmed up for 10 minutes on the bike followed by 3 miles on the treadmill. Then I finished off the day with 3 miles after work.

Wednesday 2/27

5 miles at 8:54 /mile – easy effort. I immediately checked the weather forecast when I woke up and saw that it was 45 degrees with a chance of rain. No big deal! I gave myself a goal of running “easy” at a 9:00-9:30 pace and just went for it.. hills and all.

Thursday 2/28

TEMPO THURSDAY! 8 miles at 8:31 /mile – 1 mile warm up + 5 x 5/3/2 tempo + 1 mile cool down. I set my alarm for 4:30a, started my run at 5:30a with Randy/Sarah and we got it done.

Friday 3/1

Active rest day with a FlyBarre Arms & Abs workout. I was debating on running or doing a second workout but decided to take the time to recover.

Saturday 3/2

Set out for a run around Raleigh. I knew that I would be happy with anything from 11 to 16 miles. Ended up with 12 very hilly miles, not to shabby!

Sunday 3/3

Hit the trails for 6 miles – wow!!! Sunday is usually my rest or easy day but I didn’t want to pass up an opportunity to get outside on the trails. It was hilly but we took it slow and enjoyed the miles.

TOTAL: 44
