tuesday, yes it's
Still on my own regarding running. Coach Joe Positive says "more. longer. faster." so today was an attempt at that: 90 minutes including 5x[3 on/3 off], "on" being around 6:30 pace. It was windy this morning and my "ons" all seemed to have some headwind stretches, so I ended up averaging 6:40 pace, boo. Still, I'm glad to have done something. This afternoon I rode the bike for a half-hour in more wind and spitting rain. I really dislike the bike, but to keep it tolerable I try to think of it as a free calorie-eraser: no impact, works the antagonists to the muscles I overwork while running, burns some energy.
The rest of the week will look something like:
W: 75min v easy, bike 30min in the afternoon
R: 75min easy, core-strength shit at night
F: 55min easy w/strides, bike 30min in the afternoon
Sa: 10k "race" + 2 wu/2 cd, possible bike in the afternoon
Su: 17 or 18 at a decent clip, hopefully with people. Core-strength shit at night.
Hopefully this will end up closer to 70 miles than I've been in , oh, months.
