10k training update – week 5

Here’s my training from last week, Monday, August 7 to Sunday, August 13. This was a great week! I tried some new workouts and crushed a big goal. I’m thoroughly enjoying some rest today.

10k training week 5

Monday

Hill repeats 6.47 km: My knees finally felt ok enough to try some hills. I love hills. No really! I’m not being sarcastic. Nothing beats passing people on hills in a race. 😀

Tuesday

Physio + Weights I talked to Katie about my physio appointment and we worked on my ankle flexibility along with some regular strength training.

Wednesday

Intervals Rest (stretch + foam rolling) My legs were really fatigued from training yesterday with Katie so I spent time with my yoga mat and foam roller instead!

Thursday

Weights + easy run (treadmill) 4.12 km: Second-to-last training session with Katie. She’s pushed me so far and I’ve seen great progress. Going to miss working with her!

Friday

November Project I went! This was a huge goal and step outside of my comfort zone. I wrote a whole post about my first NP workout.

Saturday

40 mins easy 6.38 km: I ended up doing two 30-minute runs commuting to and from the SeaWheeze half marathon to help at the 5k hydration station?

Sunday

Rest Foam rolling, of course!

Total distance: 16.97 km (I probably ran closer to 19 km but I didn’t track all of the running I did on Friday with November Project.)

Until next time, finish your coffee and go run!
