Intervals Tuesday

Postby erinmcd » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:04 am

Good morning all!

15K this morning. Warm up, the 6 x 1600m @ between 10K & 1/2 marathon pace with 400m jog recovery, then cool down.
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

Yup

15min easy - 4x10min @ 10km pace with 1min recoveries - 15min easy. 15.4km total. Puppy nailed it :)

ETA:
Lunchtime 44min - 8.65km recovery run. Nasty, nasty wind made it more of a workout than a recovery.

5K in 30 min on the TM, followed by 15 minutes on the spin bike - kind of a reverse brick I guess! :lol: :lol:

Tonight is tempo Tuesday with the clinic.

It's now April, so time to get my butt in gear commuting with two feet and a heart beat. Today was a walk to work - 4.5k. That's all I'll have time for today unless I can get out for a short run tonight.

Started the day with a 1-hr weights workout: squats, thrusters, dips, box jumps, russian twists, and dumbbell rows.... was fun!!

Lunchtime will be a run.

Afterwork will be a swim.

Evening will be a play.

I think that's it! :D

Just under 11km planned for lunch followed by some core work. Today will be my first run in capris of 2013. Hopefully shorts will follow soon :) Will do a bit of strength at home this evening after work.

Have a great day!

I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise...it's a consistent reward for victory!

15 km this morning in the minus 6 C, minus 12 with the wind chill. Yes, I've run in worse this winter but after a week or more of above freezing and sunshine, it felt very cold! At least there was no ice, and at 6:20 when I left my house there was some daylight. It's Spring according to the calendar, and Mother Nature has almost caught up. :)

Boy, there really are a lot of familiar faces here that I used to see at the RR forum! I should have come here sooner. It's like being the last person to migrate to the kitchen at a party…

Wind training for me (cuz it's a brrrreeezy day!). I ran up through downtown, stopping at nearly every light, so it was a kind of interval training. Good exercise. I have some kind of back issue that I need to resolve, though. (I'm sure I didn't help it much by skiing on late-season heavy snow this past weekend.) By halfway through I felt like I was slapping my feet down, and I was feeling pretty stiff in the lower right back especially. Well, I have a massage booked on Sunday, and I'll book a chiro sometime soon.

Nothing today, it was a draining day at work and despite the best intentions when I got home I'm just tired so I'm sitting doing nothing and enjoying it.
