Week 2 – IMLP70.3

Week 2 is done and dusted! I didn’t hit all of my workouts (two a days is HARD) but I listened to my body and got in quality workouts. Monday- 5/29 Total Rest Day Tuesday- 5/30 RUN: 6x800s (Total: 6.59 miles @ 8:15) A quiet morning on the track busting out some 800s. I felt super in control the whole time despite being super sleepy when I first got there. Splits: 3:23, 3:22, 3:21, 3:24, 3:23, 3:20. Wednesday- 5/30 BRICK: BIKE- 1 hour intervals on the trainer, RUN- 5.26 miles @ 9:02 Waited until later at night to do this which is never really a good idea.  The bike felt good but the run, oof, not so much.  Too many veggies for dinner left me with an upset stomach and heartburn but I am proud of myself for getting through it. Thursday- 6/1 SWIM: 400-300-200-100 (Total: 2000 yds at 2:04/100yd) […]

Week 1 – IMLP 70.3 Training

Wooo! 70.3 training has officially begun! The big race is Lake Placid IM 70.3 on September 10th so we’re about 15 weeks out. This year with my HIM and marathon so close together I decided to enlist the help of a coach.  I went with Kindal (@runningwithstrength) and she is going to guide me through two succesful races.  Not going to lie when I saw the schedule I freaked.  Every day there are two discplines, sometimes together in a brick and sometimes as two workouts.  It is going to take a lot of coordination and effort to get it done but luckily Drew is also training so I have a buddy along the way. Here’s how Week 1 went down! Monday: 5/22 Total Rest Day Tuesday: 5/23 RUN: 4×1200 at HMP (Total 6 miles @ 8:17) Before this workout I went to the doctor for my heel. I was freaking out […]

Weekly Workouts- 4/24-4/30

Another week of workouts!  I can’t believe that April is already over, I swear time has been flying recently.  It’s weird because the days go slow but the weeks go fast. Anyways on to this week’s workouts. Monday- Vinyasa Yoga I got a package of yoga classes recently in the hopes of opening up my hips since after last race I had some angry hip flexors.  This class was different than the last but just as great and I really like the teacher.  I also like this a lot better than hot yoga which is just too much for my body.   Tuesday- Rest Day Ice cream and catching up with a friend won today. Wednesday- 4.5 miles (8:23 pace), Fartlek 10 min warm up 1 min on, 2 min off, 2 min on, 1 min off x3 1o min cool down Oh man, ever have those days where everything […]
