Training for 5/30/19

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 9:03 am

Yesterday afternoon, I brought down from the sweltering attic the Swiss exercise ball, medicine ball and adjustable dumbbells, so I could do some strength training where it didn’t feel like the inside of an oven. I did push-ups, ab exercises, invisible chair-sitting and the lifting routine with the dumbbells.

This morning, I didn’t get out for my run as early as I did yesterday, but I still managed to go before it got too bad, around 7:30. The sun was much higher by that point, obviously, but I had some good stretches of shade after the first couple of miles.

I did a speed workout, six 400-meter repeats, aiming for 1:45 (7:00/mile pace) on each.

After a 1.5-mile warmup, I ran the six repeats in 1:47, 1:47, 1:39, 1:42, 1:40 and 1:45. Not bad, but I really needed the recovery already after each!

I did another mile to cool down and finished the 5.5-mile loop in 48:16, an 8:46/mile overall average.
