Week 5 Training Plan: 10/1-10/7
Monday, 10/1: Rest Day
Tuesday, 10/2: Medium Run + ST [5 mi run + Stage 1/Workout A #6]
Actual: Ran 5 miles in 53 minutes (10:36 minute/mile pace). Did Workout A #6. I'm up to squatting with 75 pounds and doing one set of "real" pushups. Progress!
Wednesday, 10/3: Rest Day
Thursday, 10/4: Short Run + ST [3.5 mi run + Stage 1/Workout B #6]
Actual: Ran 3.6 miles in 36 minutes (10 minute/mile pace). Did Workout B #6.
Friday, 10/5: Rest Day
Saturday, 10/6: 10k Race
Actual: Great race! Ran 6.2 miles in 57:45, which is 9:18 minute/mile pace. It was 34 degrees at the start--chilly! My goal was under :60 and I was thrilled with the result. Leapfrogged with a woman who really inspired me to run faster. The end was all downhill and I was flying!
Sunday, 10/7: Medium Run + ST [5 mi run + Stage 1/Workout A #7]
Actual: Rest Day. Decided my body needed a few days off after the tough effort I put into the 10k race on Saturday.
