CIM Training: Week 2

view from my long run in Alameda

I felt really good about this week.  I think only running 4 days a week (and cross training 2 days a week) is really helping keep my legs from feeling totally dead.

Monday – REST

Tuesday – was supposed to be 11 miles, but it turned into 12 when I discovered the path I usually take was closed for repaving.  Thanks to the map on my phone I found my way home on the streets.  I felt so good at the end that I ran the last 3 miles in 7:34, 7:34, and 7:29!

Wednesday – 45 minute spin…on the trainer, watching Jon Stewart.

Thursday – 8 miles with 4 at Lactate Threshold pace.  Ran one mile to the gym and hopped on the treadmill, one mile warm-up, 4 miles at 7:08 min/mile, one mile cool down on the treadmill, then one mile home.

Friday – 45 minutes Vinyasa yoga.  I did a video from here and it was awesome.  I hadn’t done yoga in months, but Teri’s post inspired me to do it again

Saturday – 6 miles easy (9:00/mile) with the whole family.  Mike and I eached pushed the stroller 3 miles.

Sunday – 15.1 miles (8:49 pace) A nice, relaxed long run with my dad around Alameda

Total: 41 miles

    That sounds like a great running week! I love that you run with your dad and he seems to keep a pretty good pace too!
