LVM Training Week 3: Intervals

I have not done a good job of cross training this week. Tuesday I was pretty tired from the 10k, so I decided to just rest. With everything going on this weekend (Friday:long run, Saturday:Elk River ride & 5k, Sunday: Titans game), I figured I better get some rest while I can. That's probably not in my best interest for the hilly Music City Tri coming up, but oh well.
Yesterday was intervals, since I did the 10k Monday (substituting the 7 mile tempo run). Below is what was planned, and what really happened:

I am finally hitting some targets!! That is good news. I did this workout during my lunch break this time, instead of 5:15 a.m., so maybe that had something to do with it.

The bad news is that I did not get out of bed this morning for cross training. Ugh. And I may just have to write it off, as the rest of my day is completely full with work, cooking for a friend whose grandmother passed away, Briar's basketball tryouts, and all the other stuff that consume a normal day. I guess the bright side of that is fresh legs for Friday's long run. It's 17 miles, so I'll need them.

Great job on the speed work.

Hope those legs aren't TOO fresh, I won't be able to keep up on that long run!

It's amazing how we have to juggle our training (play) with other responsibilities. Have a great weekend.

Keep them fresh..the most important run is the long run ;)
