Happy Mother's Day to all the bloggers who perform Mommy duties of any kind!
After 3 weeks of pretty good training and miles we were thinking of making this week a reduced mileage / rest week. However we're both feeling pretty good so the current plan is 1 more week similar to last week and then we'll probably take a rest week next week and finish it off running the Scandinavian 5K on the 24th down in my good 'ol home town of Ephraim.I'll be shooting for 65-75 miles this week. Kim is looking at around 40 miles.
Current pace zones:
1MP = 7:20-7:30, 3KP = 7:40-7:55, 5KP = 7:55-8:15, 10KP = 8:15-8:35,
HMP = 8:40-8:55, MP = 8:55-9:15, BP = 9:20-10:30, RP = 10:30-12:00
1MP = 5:15-5:25, 3KP = 5:35-5:45, 5KP = 5:50-6:00, 10KP = 6:00-6:15,
HMP = 6:20-6:40, MP = 6:40-6:55, BP = 7:10-8:00, RP = 8:00-9:10.
Tentative plan for this week:
Mon: AM 3-6 miles with Kim @ RP, PM 7 @ BP. Dork drills.
Hills: AM 5-6 with Kim @ RP, PM 6-7 @ RP w/ 8x1-min hill reps @ 1MP w/2-minute active recoveries.(6 reps for Kim).
Wed: AM 0-6 with Kim @ RP, PM 7 @ BP. Core workout.
Thu: Fartlek: AM 5-6 with Kim @ RP, PM 7 @ BP w/ 8x1-min striders "sprinkled in" (6 for Kim) @ 1MP
Fri: AM 0-6 with Kim @ RP, PM 7 @ BP. Core workout.
Sat: AM 10 miles @ BP, 5-10 miles @ RP. I'll be doing this run while at father-son campout near Birdseye. Kim will be running a 'casual' 5K at Thanksgiving Point in an attempt to win an entry into SG marathon. Good luck Kim!
