Post your Workout for Today Here!

Recommended Posts

Very early morning workout, W5 D2 done!

I'm gonna do another D2, before I move onto D3. I'm quite nervous about a full 20min jog.

You are already running 20 min total! So may I suggest -  go for the day 3. If you will feel in the middle of the run that you cannot push yourself more, take short walk (10-15 sec) and continue. You can always count it as Day 2 ;)

Thanks torus! I'll take you up on that suggestion and let you know tomorrow how I did.

My second Week 9

Day 2

 

Run 45 min (10, 10, 10, 15 min. intervals) with average speed 6.01 mph (5.9, 6.0, 6.0 and 6.1 mph)

Total distance 4.5 miles. I think I am almost ready for 5k under 30 min (need speed 6.22mph).

 

Catherine, I am waiting for your result!

 

Blayne, how are you doing? I know it was cold, snowy, icy and rainy past few days.....

Great job!  Do not worry about pace. It will come... I am working on it redoing week 9.

We are very much in the same boat (55, 215#) so I am sure you can do it.

 

Now it's week 6! it is easier...

Day 1&2 on Week 6 looks easier, but after jogging 20 minutes why does it go back to jogging and walking?

if it feels easy you can add interval 3, 5 or 8 min run. That's what I did.

Program is trying to increase (slowly) the distance/endurance and prepare you mentally for the last run of the week.

 

second Week 9, Day 3.

40 min of run (10, 10, 10, 10 min) with 2 min walk on between.  Ran 4.08 miles with average speed 6.12 mph

My plan for today was: take easy pace and run 20-25 min. But all treadmills were busy, when I arrived...

So I jumped on a bicycle and did interval training on it. Total 5 miles per 20min.

Then I switch to treadmill. It feels very well (good warm up?) and I run 40 min strait with speed 5.8 mph.

That is 3.8 miles or 6.2km.

 

(I will probably pay for this tomorrow :) )

Hi guys!

 

Yesterday due to rain I went to the club, for Week 6 Day 2. I chose the first option 10min/3min/10min.

 

Today I got out on a park trail and did the

1 mile-2/4mile-1mile!!

 

I'm amazed at how far I have come in 6 weeks!

When early on 90 seconds of jogging intimidated me.

That is the way to go!

 

Update for the Thursday:

 

My hip joints still cannot recover after previous few runs.... :(

I am actually thinking to take 10-14 days off from running, but keep walking....

Today I went to the gym, did 9 miles/40min on the bike - interval training (every mile - do 30 sec at max speed).

Then run 1 mile at 6mph. It is funny, but the running itself feels fine. The walking after the training is painful. Especially first few steps..

torus,

 

Hate that you are in pain! Your workout is still impressive.

 

Today I completed W6 D3 jogged 2.25 miles and I shaved 22 seconds off of my (min/mile) from the last two days of training. Could it be the new running shoes I bought just before I went out today? But, through my right hamstring started hurting and it's very sore right now He is what I'm supposed to put on it right?

 

I'm trying to also to prevent, getting plantar fasciitis again. I had it after Thanksgiving and it took six weeks to heal. I could feel the pads of my feet burning during the last few runs. Any body have any advice? I'm on my second pair of new shoes in the past 2 weeks. The guy at Racket and Jog had me try on 3 different brands, I went with the Asics instead of the Hoka's or Brooks.

I'm wondering if the Hoka's would have been a better choice.
