I survived my first week in Lewiston and on “the wards.” The schedule has taken some getting used to and my legs are thrashed from a week of a lot more walking and standing than normal but I made it. I also somehow made it to taper for the 4 miler, so I’m excited to see how that goes next Saturday.
Monday: 7 miles of loops around Bates Campus plus striders.
Tuesday: Gear Changing workout. Added bonus of trying to find somewhere 1) safe 2) flat enough 3) long enough. 5 minutes at T pace, 1 minute rest, 2 by 800 at I pace with 3:00 rest, 400, 300, 300, 200 at R pace with full recovery. 8 miles total. Lifted legs after at the hospital gym.
Wednesday: Insane, insane day at the clinic. Went for a walk while on the phone with my mom instead.
Thursday: 8 mile run with legs that felt just plain horrible. Didn’t realize how hilly it is around here until this run.
Friday: 6 by 300 at R pace for a total of 7 miles. Feeling clunky. Arms after.
Saturday: 5 mile recovery run.
Sunday: 7.2 mile “long run.” Thanks taper! Actually found a lovely place to run north of town so that was nice. Legs feeling a little better.
Total Miles 42.2
Total Miles for March: 217
For this week, I’m going to try to get my runs in before clinic and see how my legs feel. I do have a night shift this week which will mess everything up but I’m hoping I can get my legs to feel a little better before Saturday.
