Miakonda Training week 6

The weather was a bit goofy, and Sunday was brutal under the sun (but I wore sunscreen), but I remind myself it’s good training. Otherwise, good week, although my schedule is a bit goofy this upcoming week, so I know things will be shuffled around quite a bit. It’s also hard to believe this is one quarter of my plan done and under my belt already!

  • Monday: Rest.
  • Tuesday: 6 miles. Tiny loops in the neighborhood.
  • Wednesday: 8 miles. Speedwork at the track, VO2 Max: 2×1200, 2×1000, 2×800. My last VO2 Max workout this cycle!
  • Thursday: 4 miles. Tiny loops.
  • Friday: Rest.
  • Saturday: 18 miles. Early run, then volunteered with Gay4Good (more on that below) and then a campfire for a friend’s birthday, busy day!
  • Sunday: 12 miles. Back to the trail for these after a very busy day. Temperature wasn’t bad, but no clouds meant the sun was just brutal.
  • Long run fuel: Tailwind, Bobo’s Bar.
  • BWF/Core work: Zombies Run keeps crashing (I’m working with tech support), but spent most of my volunteer time with Gay4Good filling sandbags for Grow Pittsburgh, so a good workout! We also all walked down the street to grab food from food trucks after, and it was so nice to spend time with those friends!
  • Yoga: Adding it’s own bullet point here, the goal is to do a yoga class each week. Two weeks in a row now! I’ve found a wonderful instructor online and really like how she teaches, and I think I’m really enjoying Yin Yoga, now that it’s been explained to me!
  • Stretching: I did my stretching routine after every run!
