Training Tuesday: Detroit Marathon week 15
I had a pretty decent week, with the beginning starting rocky but an incredible long run on Saturday. The good definitely provided redemption for the past couple weeks of crappy runs.
Monday 9/1/14 RUN - 7 miles (5 easy, 2 medium) - I wussed out and used a friend's TM because I was sick of the humidity. This wasn't a great run (averaged 11:07) but I got through it.
Tuesday 9/2/14 STRENGTH-ish - Saw my chiro for a very sore ankle and he diagnosed more glute/hip issues. It's crazy how something that doesn't even hurt results in pain somewhere else. I now have a bunch of exercises I can't really do right and I spend time doing those instead of the TABATA I was supposed to do.
Wednesday 9/3/14 RUN - 7 miles (averaged 11:07 again - at least I'm consistent???). This was supposed to be a progressive and it sorta was but then it wasn't.
Thursday 9/4/14 STRENGTH - stretching, rolling and a few pushups. I"ve started doing Kintetic Revolution 30 day challenge based on a friend's recommendation. It takes a lot longer than I wish it did, but hopefully it will start fixing some of my strength and flexibility issues.
Friday 9/5/14 STRETCHING more KR.
Saturday 9/6/14 RUN I crushed my 16 mile run with a 10:58 average pace. Switched my intervals to 5 min run/:30 walk and it was perfect. Helped the weather cooperated, too.
Sunday 9/7/14 WALK and STRETCH - I've loved my Sunday morning active recovery walks. No watch, just a meandering walk to sbux and home.
This coming week's schedule is a little goofy because I'm running a 10 mile race on Sunday. I need to make an effort to get more actual strength training in, too, instead of just KR.
So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016. Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
