Some of you know that I started this training again a few weeks ago after graduating the program last year! It would have been W4D1 for me, but I decided to go through the training with a virtual buddy and go back since she had just started! Becky!
Today was Pixie 5K Friday and I wanted to get the entire thing done while doing the training! So after the scheduled intervals were complete I continued on with them until I reached 3.1 miles.
Since all my training will take place on the treadmill, I've set it to a 2% incline! After graduating again, I plan to go back a few weeks, take my runs to the road, work on endurance and speed to prepare for my 5K in August!
Today looked like this: Warm Up walk of 5 min @ 4.0, Run intervals of 60 sec @ 6.0, and Walk intervals of 90 sec @ 4.0! My last walk interval was slightly shorter than 90 seconds, but I had reached the 5K so I was satisfied! Time 39:35. I didn't complete any additional cool down walk and I probably should have, but I was crunched a bit for time!
Both Becky and I plan to blog our daily training as a way to keep each other on track....so stay tuned! Next one coming Sunday!
