Monday: Easy afternoon run. It was cold in the morning and my bed was too warm and comfy… Not a good excuse, but it was the truth. Got out in the afternoon and had a really enjoyable run (still a little cold…). 4.16 miles @ 147 avg HR.
Tuesday: PRT session with my study group. Focus of the day was running, so we conducted a sprint workout. Looked like this:
30/60s (30 second sprint / 60 second recovery) x 10 sets+ 300 Yard Shuttle Sprint
(Let’s be honest… the shuttle sprint was more like a shuttle jog…)
Following the workout, I had a little extra time, so I did another set of 10 30/60s on my own… Ended up being about 2.5 miles total
Wednesday: Easy 3 miler in the morning (29 degrees… brrr) and the following PRT work out in the afternoon with my study group:
Thursday: Morning threshold/tempo pace 5k on my “flat” route.
Friday: Easy 4.2ish miler. I needed to get out and get some fresh air… but BRRR it was cold. This was the first time I had to actually watch for ICE as I was running. Does this mean winter is finally coming to Kansas City?!
Saturday: Impromptu rest day. I had a TON of homework, reading, etc to catch up on so I skipped my planned long run.
Sunday: Another impromptu rest day. After Mass, I had an intense migraine, so I ended up just closing myself into a dark room until it passed… 6 hours later, I realized that it wasn’t going to go away and my run just wasn’t going to happen.
Weekly Total (according to Garmin): 18.69 miles
This week was another crappy one! I feel like I have balance with school / working out, but the past (and next!) few weeks are sort of like finals week- all the papers, test, practical exercises, etc are approaching the due date and it is a mad rush to get everything done!
