Ran 5 miles outside- 9:15 min pace
Sunday May 15: off
I wish I could say that with my disappointing workouts last week, I started this week with a bang. But no. I slept through my alarm Monday and rushed to make it to work by 7:30am. And then I worked 7:30am-7:30pm. Such is life. I vowed today would be my day.
In the next couple weeks I am running 2 5Ks and the Corporate Challenge (3.5 miles). I want to PR. I want to run low 23s in the 5K. My first race is the Tory Row 5K on Sunday. Will you be there?
Then I have the Corporate Challenge! I'm one of the captains of my team and my first order of business was to order Expert Tech T's. I actually ordered the same shirts we got for the DC National Half Marathon. I love those shirts and they are only 5 bucks each!!! They are from Expert Perfomance- check out the site if you are looking for shirts for a race! We just sent them out to get printed and I'm psyched about the shirt and the design. I'll show you them once their finished : )
After the Corporate Challenge, I'm running the Foxboro 5K for Diabetes, a race I ran a few years ago.
So I have three chances to run fast. As you know in order to run fast, I have to train fast so off to the treadmill I went this morning. On tap for today was a tempo of sorts. One mile warmup, 5K as fast to race pace as possible, 1 mile cooldown.
THE DEETS: Speed Tuesday- 1 mile warmup at 6.0mph 10 min pace, 3.1 miles in 24:09/7:46 pace, Cooldown: .15 walk at 3.0mph, .75 at 6.0. Total= 5 miles at 44:45, 8:57 pace.
Can I tell you this was SO hard for me but it felt good! I do like that I progressively got faster. I ran my first mile of the 5K at 8:06 and got faster as I went. It was definitely a challenge for me. One that I really liked! Bring on the tempos!
Other races I'm signed up for include:
June 11: Mini 10K in NYC with a bunch of awesome blogger buddies
June 26: BAA 10K
August 14: Falmouth Road Race (I am actually looking to see if anyone wants my bib... I forgot I was planning a trip that weekend... leave me a comment if you are interested...)
Oh... and my marathon training begins at the end of June. Did I mention I'm running another marathon with Becky? Well, more on that later...
How do you balance work, life and working out?
