Is anyone else struggling with this time change?? I was this morning. I had every intention of waking up early to do a workout. The alarm went off, I got up and made some chai tea but my body was just not having it. So I went back to bed for a little longer. Im gonna try again tonight after work and go to a cycle class.
It was beautiful around our parts this weekend! It feels like Spring is here already
I am running my first race since the marathon next Saturday. It is only a 5k but I am making it my goal to be one of the top 4 female finishers. So I have been doing more sprint work these past few weeks to get faster. Below is what I have been doing 2x a week to get ready.
I did a trial run this weekend outside and finished in 25 minutes (8:06 pace). It is cutting it close to be one of the top 4 female finishers (compared to last years time). But hopefully the crowd will get my adrenalin going and speed up my pace (it usually does).
Kaitlyn and I are running the in the Color me Green 5k. It should be a lot of fun! It is a trail race where they throw green powder on you in celebration for St. Patty’s Day.
This is a great workout to do on the treadmill for all you out there who get super bored like me. Or if you are just looking for a quick 30 minute workout that really kicks your butt and leaves your sweaty then this is a great one to try out.
Time (mins) Speed(mph)
5:00-12:00 increase speed by 0.1 every 15 secs
13:00-19:00 decrease speed by 0.1 every 15 secs
26:00-30:00 decrease speed by 0.1 every 15 secs
Feel free to change up the paces to whatever works best for you. If you need to start out at 4.5 mph thats fine or if you are advanced and want to start at 6/6.5 then that is awesome! Make the workout to your likings
What is your favorite distance to run?
My favorite would have to be the half marathon. I can train for it in about 2 months and it doesn’t cripple my body like a full marathon does haha
Until next time…
