Eagle Up 2020: Week 4

Week 4 was supposed to be a step down week, but due to going to Florida to run the Sarasota Half, I’m delaying that two weeks. I’ll be anxiously awaiting that lower mileage week!

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 8 miles. Ran the Frontrunners course twice, the second time I timed it right to run with friends from the group! We also ran through the trailers for something that was filming down there.
  • Wednesday: 8 miles, speedwork. VO2 max: 2 sets of 2x1200m, 1x800m at 5K pace (9:05).
  • Thursday: 5 miles. Added an extra mile (and some change) and then joined the Frontrunners for the loop.
  • Friday: Rest day.
  • Saturday: 18 miles. I wanted to run this outside, but due to ice and road conditions, I opted for the treadmill. Not ideal, but for safety, it’s the right call.
  • Sunday: 6 miles. Back at the gym, this time so I could then go volunteer and go to the symphony and make my schedule work.
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, Bobo’s Bar.
  • BWF/Core work: Did the BodyWeightFitness Recommended Routine once this week, so I’ll be adding an extra one tonight (partially because I really do like it, and I want to keep seeing improvement!)
  • Stretching: Still room for improvement, but getting back into the habit of doing my stretching routine after every run.
