Workouts 7/23 - 7/29
My workout week last week was not bad but not great either. My coach gave me a workout every day and I did most of them, falling off when we went out of town for the weekend. I don't think they are all showing in this picture though.
Monday - A scripted chest and shoulders weight lifting workout. I used books but the books are very inconvenient and it makes me consider looking on Craigs list for some weights. I'm not willing to pay much since the last time I sold some I did so for $12 or $15.
Tuesday - 3.16 in 40 (12:39) plus walking warm up/down. This was designed as a zone 2 run with my new zone 2 between 160-170. I had to take walk breaks but these were only 15 seconds or so long each time. It was a good run.
Wednesday - Chest and back workout using books. I wasn't in the mood but did it anyway.
Friday - 2.69 in 35 (13:01) plus walking warm up down. This was 30 minutes in zone 2 (2.27 in 30 [13:12]) and then 5 minutes pushing into zones 3 and 4 (.42 in 5 [11.54]). "Negative split" run. This should have been Thursday's run but was not.
Friday - Core work for 30 minutes.
Sunday - Zone 2 run. 6.25 miles in 1:20 (12:48) plus walking warm up/down. I was supposed to have finished with a 3 minute push but wasn't connected enough to have reread that instruction.
I didn't log my food while out of town but plan do to so this week. It looks like a recovery week with light runs and doing some strength training. I need to double up as I wasn't able to get in the strength workout yesterday with the drive home, laundry, car inspection, and everything else.
