Monday: 11.5 miles on the bike path with Will.
Tuesday: Easy run plus 4 laps of striders on the track.
Wednesday: 7 mile interval workout. Warmup, drills, 4 laps of ins and outs plus 6 by .25 miles on the bike path. Effort was definitely there, pace was a little off because of the terrain.
Thursday: 4 miles in the early morning. Exhausted!
Friday: 10 mile long run on the Causeway. Nice to get my run done before the weekend.
Saturday: 6.8 mile tempo workout with 3 miles continuous tempo via heartrate. (6:31, 6:39, 6:36). Legs after. Felt good.
Sunday: 5.5 mile recovery run with 4 laps of striders on the track. Arms afterward.
Total Miles: 50.3
Total May Miles: 220
The Good: I got up and got my runs in early this week which made it a much less stressful week from a running perspective. I continue to do a good job getting striders in and feel like my efficiency is really improving. Although my mileage is the same as it has been, it was really an adaptation week because my day to day volume was lower besides the Monday long run.
The Ugly: Still struggling to get my strength work in. Got two workouts in this week plus bedtime abs, so hoping to add another leg workout to next week.
