Eagle Up 2020: Week 5

This was my last week before a lower mileage week and I’m very much looking forward to the break. I’m off to Florida to run the Sarasota Metro Diner Music Half Marathon, race report to follow!

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 7 miles. Tiny loops around my neighborhood.
  • Wednesday: 7 miles, speed work. VO2 max: 2x1200m, 2x1000m, 1x800m at 5K pace (9:05)
  • Thursday: 4 miles .
  • Friday: Rest day.
  • Saturday: 18 miles. I headed down to the jail trail to do loops, and joined the Frontrunners on their modified Saturday loop before running a bunch more miles on my own. I also ventured a bit into downtown just for something different, which was a nice treat.
  • Sunday: 12 miles. Ended up splitting this into two 6’s due to timing as well as an upset stomach. Not ideal, but still glad I got the miles in.
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, jelly beans. I’m not really a fan of jelly beans for long run fuel, but it was Lunar New Year, so I was attempting to celebrate correctly!
  • BWF/Core work: Did the BodyWeightFitness Recommended Routine twice this week, so still on track!
  • Stretching: Doing better, but always room for improvement.
