As part of my crazy “Run less, Run Faster” training plan I am following for my next marathon, today was sprints. I might have liked them more if I was actually outside doing them instead of on the treadmill but when the temp is down in the teens and it’s dark, I enjoy the warmth of the indoors. So inside I went.
Here is what it looked like:
1 mile warm up at 6.7 (on the treadmill)
1 X 800 at 7.8
1 X 800 at 8.2
3 X 800 at 8.7
1 mile cool down at 7, but sped up at the end because I wanted to finish 5 miles in 40 and just missed at 40:03 for 5 miles.
3 sets of 30 – crunches and side crunches with legs in the air
3 sets of 12: Bridges, Clam shells, leg lifts
3 supermans for 30 seconds each
Then some stretching.
As I sit here and stiffen up and every once in a while get up, all I can think is “I’m gonna feel this tomorrow!” I don’t know about you but I think it will be worth it in the end.
