My Week in Running Jan 28th- Feb 3rd

Monday:  Went to the AOA water fitness class, mostly took notes.  Then I jumped on a treadmill and ran 4.5 miles @ 8:34 pace dropping it to 7:30 for half a mile.  It was crazy warm outside for one day only so later that afternoon Gretchen and I went to the trail for 4 more miles at a 8:40 pace.

Tuesday:  Went to a cross training class then ran 5 miles on the treadmill @8:34 pace

Wednesday:  Went to a bootcamp class then ran 4 miles on the treadmill @8:49 pace.

Thursday:  Ran 3 miles on the treadmill doing 4X400 hill repeats.  I did a .5 warmup then my hills at 6:58 pace and in between 400 rests at a 9:00 pace.  I did an incline of 3 on the treadmill.  I wasn't really sure about what incline I should do.  It was uphill but nothing super crazy.
I had a little time to kill later and ran an easy 1.5 miles on the treadmill @9:13 pace.  I was trying to keep the pace slow enough that I didn't sweat.  Turns out I sweat at any pace.

Friday:  Bootcamp class then an hour of study time for an hour it was at the gym so it counts.

Saturday:  7 miles on the treadmill race pace.  .5 warmup, 6 miles @8:00 pace and .5 cool down.  I was not into it but did it anyway.

Sunday:  I did not feel good when I woke up, just really tired and my stomach felt off.  I went out to my parents house and pretty much just laid around till about 2:30 when I got it together and went out to run.  I was supposed to do 12 miles but figured I'd just see what happened.  The first 4.8 miles went pretty well then it all went down pretty quickly from there.  At mile 5 I turned around.  While there was no wind running out there defiantly was coming back.  I spent the rest of the run wishing I had brought a hat and gloves and I almost called my sister to come pick me up a bunch of times.  I mostly walked the last mile.  I don't count my walking mileage normally but when it horrible walking mileage only done because I felt I couldn't run anymore it counts.  All that walking brought my pace way up to an average 9:52 but whatever.

Weekly total: 39 miles a little over my goal somehow this just happened.  Still my long run was only 10 lame miles so need to step that up.  Also I just got a smart phone for the first time a few weeks ago and I may of already ruined it by sweating on it.  I'm gross and my phone won't let me turn the volume on to speak or hear.  Thoughts?

  1. Cold wind is the worse, but walking in it seems even more terrible. Try turning the phone off and on, letting it rest, and next time put it in a ziploc or I have these cool sweat proof pouches that came with some of my clothes.
