So... last week pretty much rocked.

I hit everything I planned to last week -

Monday: Suck Less Program (170 push ups, 283 sit ups, 153 tricep dips, 3 min plank)

Tuesday: RLRF called for 400's... plan was for 400's at 2:24-2:32.... half mile warm up, then...
1 @ 2:26, 2 @ 2:21, 3 @ 2:21, 4 @ 2:22, 5 @ 2:19, with 400 RI in between.

Wednesday: Suck Less Program (185 push ups, 324 sit ups, 179 tricep dips, plank intervals (4 min total))

Thursday: Abs (from laughing at the Bloggy meetup)

Friday: Tempo! .5 warm up, 3 miles @ 10:40, .5 cool down. Actual was 1 - 10:38, 2 - 10:38, 3 - 10:26.

Saturday: Suck Less Program (200 push ups, 379 sit ups, 205 tricep dips, plank intervals (4 min total)), plus 7.75 miles cycling testing out the new shorts (15.5 mph, hilly).

Sunday: Long run - 6 miles @ 12:18 (RLRF called for 12:41)

Phew, right?!

I'm thinking it's about time to re-do my mile time trial and take another look at my training paces... I'm hitting everything with no problem, and feel like it might be too easy.

This week....
Monday: Suck Less Program
Tuesday: 4 hot, humid miles in FL
Wednesday: Suck Less Program
Thursday: 4 hot, humid miles in FL, again
Friday: Suck Less
Saturday: 6-7 miles, easy pace

I'm scrapping RLRF's dictated speed and tempo runs next week, in favor of survival.

Happy 4th, all. Be safe!


  1. Sometimes, you just have to go into survival mode! That's how I felt in Fiji--just get some sort of workouts in.

    I agree with you, you are killing the goal times. I don't think it's supposed to be THAT easy:)

  2. You are doing awesome!! Great job!!! :)

  3. You are making so much progress! Crayzayness.

  4. You are making so much progress! Crayzayness.

  5. sometimes you just need a rest : )

    and that blogger meet up looked like a great time!

  6. i think i'm going to really start to try to increase the number of push ups and tricep dips i can do. i am not even going to try sit ups {yet at least} but maybe i'll add some squats since i already do a ton of those anyways. you have inspired me :)

    i'm gearing up to start training for a fall half and full and i'm loosely going to follow a plan i based on the RLRF marathon training plan. i'm anxious about the tempo runs as all i can say at this point is i'm going to try my best! for some reason i'm less anxious about the speed work, but we'll see how it goes!

  7. Holy guacamole! You are ROCKING it, girl! Look at all those freaking push-ups, sit-ups, etc.... Nice job!

  8. Woman... you are taking it to the limit! Super job in sucking less :) And looking forward to seeing what your next mile time trial holds... bet it's way faster. Hope you are having a great day :)
