Recovery Week Training
Monday - 2.95 miles walking in 55 minutes. It was a holiday so I had plenty of time to relax. I went for a walk in my new Vibram 5 Finger shoes while ChocolateDaughter rode her balance bike.
Tuesday - 4 miles 48 minutes (12:00) plus the walking warm up/down. I went to the track near my work so I would be on flat and wouldn't have to think about pace or how far to go. Boring but 2:00/1:00 ratio.
Thursday - 3.9 miles 50 minutes (12:49) plus the walking warm up/down. 87 degrees out. Ran 2:00/1:00 for the first 40 at the park. Then started feeling hungry/nauseated so I slowed it down to 1:00/1:00 for the last bit.
Friday - 3.6 miles walking 56 minutes (15:33). I wore the Vibrams again but with some new toe socks. It felt lovely. 57 out and beautiful.
Sunday - 9.0 miles 1:56 (12:53) plus walking warm up/down. I set out to run 2 hours but ended up going slightly longer. Just after I had turned back toward home my wife called and said could I go to the store. I turned back, climbed an embankment, and did so, then back across the intersection, down the embankment, and home. It was quite lovely out.
This week will be less as I already know I will miss my Tuesday run and I'm not sure what I'll do this weekend.
