Crazy how time flies…especially when you don’t want it to!! As Spring Break comes to an end, I didn’t quite have the workout week I had hoped for, but it is good to give your body a break from time to time also.
My #FaveWorkout this week involved some unexpected #runlove on Tuesday. I was tired. I was so tired that I thought about skipping my workouts for the day. My morning swim didn’t go that great, so I didn’t have high expectations for my run. Boy did I surprise myself!! 🙂
I was scheduled to run 50 minutes including 4×4 minutes fast…
Warm-up for 15 minutes in Zone 1-2.
Then run intervals of 4 minutes fast (Zone 4) with 4 minutes of recovery (Zone 2).
Do this a total of 4 times.
Cool-down easy for the rest of the workout.
The fast sections should be just a little faster than your 5K race pace.
I started off fast (for me) and just kept going…it felt good, so I went with it…
Mile 1 = 8:39 average pace
Mile 2 = 8:16 average pace
Mile 3 = 8:13 average pace
Mile 4 = 8:00 average pace
Mile 5 = 7:52 average pace
Mile 6 = 7:49 average pace
Last 0.2 miles = 7:31 average pace
Sometimes the unexpected workouts are the best!!
What was your #FaveWorkout this week? Have you ever had a workout turn out way better than you thought it would? How did it make you feel?
