By week 4, I am coming to terms with the fact that as someone with a full time job, 2 kids and a hubby, that my training is fluid. Things come up, and I just adjust and do the very best that I can.
Week 5- Day 1- 1/29- Rest Day
Week 5- Day 2- 1/30- Easy Run (30 min)
So I had a stressful day, so my easy run, wasn’t very easy. I really pushed to sweat away that stress….. Managed to bust out a 10 min mile!!
Week 5- Day 3- 1/31- Intervals (4 min Run + 1:00 Rest X6)
I headed to the gym, even though my stomach was a little off. I did 4 of the 6 intervals. It was a success, even if I cut it down a bit.
Week 5- Day 4- 2/1- Easy Run (30 min)
Day 4 was a success, and I was on track to actually make it to the gym everyday that I was supposed it. Did a steady 30 minute easy run and rocked out 3 miles.
Week 5- Day 5- 2/2- Cross Training
Day 5 was spent working and then prepping for a little man’s birthday party the next day.
Week 5- Day 6- 2/3- Hills (8 min hill + 2 Rest X3)
Day 6 was also Party Day for my son. So I shortened the run and did 20 mins with some big hills…… of course, I forgot to start my watch. So did it really even happen if there is no data.
Week 5- Day 7- 2/4- Long Run (90 min)
Day 7, I did not run 90 minutes. I did run 60 minutes, in a windchill of -5 degrees. It was the first and last time I will ever run in weather that cold. My phone got so cold it shut off and I had no music!!! So needless to say, I was not quick but did finish.
Week 5 of the Garmin Connect Training program was about feeling stronger and better. How did your week go?
