I warmed up 2.5 miles to the track and then ran 4 x 200 strides. My workout was 1600-800-800-400-400-400-400. I felt much springier today than last week. I am finally ovet the flu!

1600: 5:38

800: 2:44

800: 2:43

400's: 80, 80, 79, 78

I did a short cooldown and then went to the club for Total Body Conditioning. This was not easy after a tough interval session.

I dropped three pounds in a week. Last week was obviously tough on my body.

I had a lazy morning so I ended up running on the treadmill at the gym. I ran for 20 songs. I wanted to see how far I could run in twenty songs. I increased my pace every two songs. Still, I kept this run mellow. I'm tired from yesterday. After I ran I did push ups, pull ups, and core.

I also ran .4 with Cole and Lily but I'm not counting it.

Hot and windy at 7:30 a.m. makes for a tough run. Ten miles out 4800 s to the river trail. The last mile was uphill into the wind. Not fun! I still managed 6:58 average. I had new shoes which should make my calves happier. I also had a new orange sports bra. (Sport Authority has 12 dollar Champion sports bras!)

I'm debating whether to run a fartlek workout tomorrow, or take Bootcamp class tonight and save my workout for Friday. I'm leaning towards Bootcamp. Plyos and strength work is speedwork in disguise. I'm sure to be super sore tomorrow.

Pm: Bootcamp. The class was a bit chaotic and disorganized. It was also only 45 minutes long. Oh well. It did the job. Burpees are torture.

15 mile long run with Jenny. We started at Murray Park and ran out 4800 S to 1300W, out to Gardner Village and back to 4800S via the River Trail. I really like this route. It's a good mix of rolling hills and flat sections. I felt great today. I felt especially strong in the last few miles. Yay for strength work.

I'm very happy with this week's training. I love seeing my fitness return. 7:03 average pace.

Body Pump after my run! I feel absolutely beastly! It's great!
