I promise to post something other than my training schedule at the end of this week...I swear!
This last week went pretty well- I made the majority of my work outs - except for Thursday morning. Wednesday night involved 2 bottles of wine, and Thursday morning was not fast moving...Saturday's long run was great though! I ended up running a little over 10 miles, with over half of it on trails along Buffalo Bayou. Here's a picture from half way with the hound dog.
Thursday was a nice night out for the Hubs 30th. Wine bar and French restaurant on the north side of Houston. Here's a picture of the celebrations. I know, we're the cutest.
Okay, now on with the training plan. This week I am working to incorporate more speed work.
Monday - Speed day - 10 min w/u, 1 mi half marathon speed, then 5x (2mins on, 1 min off) Cool down
Tuesday - AM - 30 mins easy, PM - 45 mins easy
Wednesday - Lift/cycle
Thursday - AM - 20 mins easy, PM - 5 mi Kenyan Progression (check out http://blog.strava.com/wow-the-kenyanprogression-9453/ , I get a lot of my workout ideas from Strava)
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Long run: 1:45
Sunday - Easy 20 min run, stretching, and core
Have a good week!
