So ... training! Last week was good in that I got my miles in although it was pretty slow going. Nothing too remarkable although I did make a few racing decisions, the most important being a switch down from the half marathon distance to the 5k distance at Lake Country in September. This means I will not get a half marathon in this year, but that's okay with me. The race is one month away and I don't feel like I would be prepared to race a half. Run the distance sure, but mentally I'm not ready to take on a half. So the 5k it is!
After last year's Lake Country 5k!
The plan this week is some of the usual with two key workouts: the Tuesday speedwork and Saturday long run. There is a chance I may add a race this weekend, which could switch things up a bit. But for now I'm sticking with what Coach Matt gave me:
Monday: 5 glue miles + Total Gym
Tuesday: 7 mile workout, inc. 5 min. intervals @goal 5k pace
Wednesday: 5 recovery miles + Y-Fuse + Y-Core
Thursday: 5 glue miles + Y-Blitz
Friday: Rest Day!
Saturday: 16 mile run
Sunday: 4 recovery miles
Total: 42 miles
Not a bad week for someone who's training for the 5k and 10k distance :)
As for eats this week, I'm enjoying as much seasonal produce as possible! A sample day:
