26

17 Jan

This week was my longest mileage week ever! 26 wonderful miles actually felt easier than the 12-15 I’m normally used to doing. I also bought some new laces (Yankz) and stopped using my orthotic insoles… I might have the happiest legs/feet in the world!! Sunday was also my best training run to date – 8 miles of pure enjoyment 🙂 Its the longest run I’ve had so far and the first time I’ve ran with no pain whatsoever. I’m hoping I have many more days like that! Here’s how the rest of the week went:

1/10   Bike – 1.5 hour easy
1/11    Hills – 8 x 20 sec (9mph, 7% incline) 3:00 recovery
             2 mi warm up & 2 mi cool down (9:15 pace)
1/12   Bike LT – 5 min @ 182 bpm, 2.5 min rec, 5 min @ 185  bpm
             20 min w/u, 20 min c/d
1/13   Easy Run – 7 mi @ 9:15 (5 min walk every 3 miles)
1/14   Hills – 8 x 20 sec (9 mph, 7% incline) 2:00 recovery
             2 mi w/u, 2 mi c/d (9:15 pace)
1/15    Bike – 1.5 hours easy (150 bpm)
1/16    Long Run – 8 mi (5 min walk every 3 miles)

Totals:    Run – 26 miles
                  Bike – 4 hours
            

This week will be much of the same workouts, but I’m going to try and add some pilates and strong classes on my lighter days.
