Fit(ter) in 15: Week 13

March is speedwork month!

I need one speed workout (track, intervals, fartlek, or hill repeats) each week. And... not incidentally, I should keep up with the strength training I started over the last two months.

How did I do this week?

  • Monday:
    • Fartlek run! (I totally missed last week's speed work... unless you count a "hilly" run as hill repeats. Which I don't) So I wanted to get this week's speed work done early!
  • Tuesday: 
    • I was a slacker...
  • Wednesday:
    • Commute run (2 miles)
  • Thursday:
    • Commute run (2 miles)
  • Friday:
    • rest day
  • Saturday:
    • Squats + a long walk
  • Sunday:
    • 6 miles. 58 minutes. Not fast, but at least I was out there.

Fit(ter) in 15: Week 12

March is speedwork month!

I need one speed workout (track, intervals, fartlek, or hill repeats) each week. And... not incidentally, I should keep up with the strength training I started over the last two months.

How did I do this week?
  • Monday: REST
  • Tuesday: just my typical commute exercise (walk/run) 
  • Wednesday:
    • 3.5 mile hilly run on my lunch break
  • Thursday: 
  • Friday: 
  • Saturday:
  • Sunday:
    • 3 miles around the neighborhood
    • Push ups, planks, and lunges at the playground
How did I do for the week?
I'm not sure I should count the hilly run as "speedwork" since I didn't do hill repeats...
And aside from a couple of runs, it was a pretty weak week.
