Monday (12/29): I ran 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym. The settings were 6.8 mph at 1% incline which equated to a 8:51 pace.
Tuesday (12/30): I did one hour of yoga at the gym at lunch. This has now been five sessions of yoga with the intent on improving my flexibility for running. I am starting to see some faint hints at improved flexibility, but it is still a long road ahead.
Wednesday (12/31): I ran 4 miles with my running group from work at 5:30 a.m.
Thursday (01/01): Happy New Year, and the first day of adding a fourth running day to my week. Thursdays are going to be used to integrate specialty running into the mix. This will include intervals, tempo, speed work, hills, etc. anything from the norm. To start, I ran intervals. In my neighborhood, I ran 6 x 400m at my 5k pace of 7:43. After each interval I did a walk/jog for 200m and then repeated the process. I started the run with 2 miles at a jog to warm up.
Friday (01/02): No workout
Saturday (01/03): Today we had a crew of 7 for the run. We started in Mt. Pleasant and ran to Sullivan’s Island to Fort Moultrie and back. The run totaled 8 miles. We expected it to rain,; however, we made it the entire run without rain. It was a nice run in about 57 degrees. It was a great weekend run to start the new year.
