Hal Higdon's have me doing 4.5 mi, 4 mi (repeats), 3 mi, 4 mi, and 9 mi (plus lifting)
The other Hal Higdon one has me doing 4.5 mi, 3 mi, 4.5 mi, and 7 mi.
This week I have done 2 mi, 3 mi, and 2 mi. See details below.
Monday: I slacked off all day so it ended up being dark so I decided to just do 2 miles on the treadmill. It was a rough 2 miles because I had just finished eating KFC minutes before starting to run. My stomach wasn't too happy with all the running. I started off doing 3% incline for .25 then 0% incline for .25 and repeat at 6.6 mph. But then I swapped it to 7.6 mph and 6.6 mph intervals. I did 2 miles in 17:28 (9:00, 8:28)
Tuesday: Rest - I had my running clothes on all day and just never did it.
Even with feeling awful and doing everything wrong, I still beat my goal.
Friday: Rest (because I was a huge slacker and just not feeling it. Even though I knew if I got out there and started running not only would I like the run but I'd also feel better in general.)
Sunday: I should have done a long run but felt under the weather. I set out to run 2 miles only. When I had to wait to cross the street, I felt like I was going to pass out (again). Then I figured I'd set out with a goal of 9:30 pace. I've done this before but for some reason I thought that meant my splits had to be 2:15. I didn't realize this was wrong until after I got home and looked at my data. I was having trouble getting 2:15 so I decided to make my goal 9:40 pace so I could add 3 seconds to each split. This is the first time EVER that I have screwed up what the splits should be. I also had trouble adding the bonus or penalty seconds from one split to the next. This was the first time I had trouble doing that. In the past I might only have trouble after 5 or so miles of adding it all or if I got up to over a minute.
Total Miles: 7.23 (So pathetic)
Total everything else: weights once (Monday), and a walk to/from dinner
Total suggested by training plans: 22, 24.5, or 19.
This week was so awful that I feel like I should do a repeat of week 7 in my goals and just call it week 8 and only follow 11 weeks. I'm even debating trying to find another half that is later on because of how bad my runs have been. I felt lightheaded so much this week and just couldn't get a good run in. I don't know why. On Saturday, I napped on the couch with 4 blankets, a hat, gloves, and a hoodie on. I would have rather been running. I'm so mad about this week.
