In and out....

The last couple of weeks have been hectic. Some family drama, some training, and a whole lot of working. Here are the last 2 weeks:

Monday-skipped my swim.

Tuesday- easy run 45 min will sully.

Wednesday-track night. Warm-up, drills 15 min, 8X150's. Those are so tough. Then 5 min rest with abs. Then 8X400. Goal was 1:40-1:45. Here are the actual splits:1:41, 1:38, 1:44, 1:42, 1:45, 1;45, 1:42, and 1:39. 10 min cool down. Felt strong and was sore.

Thursday- had drs appointment and travel day.

Friday- rainy long run in San Diego. 8 miles. Hard effort turned into easy 8. I was so tired.

Saturday/Sunday– rest/travel

Monday- swim. Wanted some speed. 1500 m total with the first and last 250 be warm up and cool down. 250X5 with 2 min rest. 7:10 wu, 6:20, 6:17, 6:15, 6:48, and 7:45 cd. 47 min total. I was spent. I think this is the effort I need to be putting into the swim. When it warms up this will be an open swim workout.

Tuesday-easy run. 50 min easy.

Wednesday/thursday- rest

Friday-6 mile Progression run. I wanted to feel it out as I went. I have been wondering if I have been going too slow to start. So here is how I went: 8:29, 8:36, 8:28, 8:19, 17:45 ( lol....had a number 2 issue, ruined my workout), and 8:41. Hate that! It happens.

Saturday-FF 8. 5 at less than 9, around 8:55 then 8:45, 8:30, and 8:19. 8:52 ave in 1:10. Moderate workout. All at unlv so it was super flat. Hella sore the rest of the day.

Sunday (today)- didn't get out of bed. Got caught up around the house.

OC is a tough course, hillier than I thought it would be. At least 9 good hills in the half marathon. Do one of your tempo runs on hills and try and do all your long runs on hilly courses to prepare.
