It’s been a while since I’ve posted a workout post, and suffice it say that I’m not running that much these days – and I’m okay with that. I’ve always been a morning runner, but my schedule has changed lately (I leave for work around 6 AM to avoid traffic), so the majority of my workouts are done after work, at which time I don’t have a lot of motivation to get on the treadmill. These days, rock climbing, Orangetheory, and other workout classes have sounded a lot more fun. Here’s how last week went:
Mon: rock climbing with Vivian after work. We were both a little tired, so I stuck to 5.8s and 1-2 5.9s.
Tue: 3 mile run on the T/M – I mixed in a little speed after a 5 min warm-up – did 6 min at 6.6, 2 min recovery, 5 min at 6.8, 2 min recovery, then 2 min at 7.0, 2 min recovery, and jogged the rest of the way. Gym was closed due to a gas leak, so no Insanity :(
Weds: rest (bad insomnia night)
Thurs: OTF! – It was a power day, so we did lots of hills on the treadmill, shorter powerful rows, and heavy weights. For those counting, I add 1.5 miles to my weekly mileage for OTF days.
Fri: 4 miles on T/M
Sat: 6 miles outside (10:08 pace) – great run with Charles, Mike’s friend in town for the weekend. My legs were pretty tired after a week of workouts, but he helped me power through.
