Week 6 of half training was a lower mileage week. Instead of a long run on the weekend, I was to do a 5k race. There happened to be a local race on Saturday that I planned to sign up for but my son's football team made it to the playoffs and ended up having a game Saturday morning. I wouldn't miss a game to run a 5k so I decided that I would run my own race and that is exactly what I did.
I do have a long run on the schedule for this weekend and to be honest, I am looking forward to a longer run again. The weather is turning chilly here though which I don't look forward too. This week shouldn't be too bad though.
Here is how last week went down....
Monday, 10/7: 3 mile run
Tuesday, 10/8: rest
Wednesday, 10/9: 4 mile run
arms and chest
Thursday, 10/10: 4.3 mile run
arms and 12 minute abs
Friday, 10/11: rest
Saturday, 10/12: 5k race against myself :) (24:38)
Sunday, 10/13: rest
There was a little more resting than I care to have but sometimes my schedule gets packed and it just works out that way.
Have a great week!
