As always, here's the countdown:
64 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #excitedmuch
Dumbo Double Dare Training: Week 9
Tuesday: 45 minutes
Wednesday: Speed training - haven't done this in a few weeks, time to get back at it!
Thursday: 45 minutes
Saturday: 4 miles plus 1 magic mile
We are now incorporating back-to-back weekend runs every other week so I decided to add speed training on the weeks we don't run Saturday and Sunday; I'm not going to overdo it but I want to work on becoming a stronger, faster runner. I am still doing my cross-training on other days, including strength training, and taking at least 1 rest day each week. I am not naive though and I realize how bloody hot it is right now so if I can only get in 4x800 instead of 6x800 then so be it; it's better than nothing! I still do all my speed training on the treadmill but it sits in my garage so it's just as hot and humid as being outside. At least I can plug in a fan to try to mimic some sort of breeze...
QOTD: Who else has their treadmill in their garage? To me, it's kinda like being at the gym only no one is staring at me so if I run in my sports bra it's ok :)
