Eleven Day Rewind

Posted by Lauren

I accidentally haven’t posted about my workouts in eleven days. I don’t think anyone noticed. Regardless…

Week 8 and 9 (my 12-week workout plan) About half of the time I managed to follow the schedule, that might be a new record!

Wednesday: Scheduled – 5×1000 track
Completed – 5×1000 sprints with 3:00 minute walk between intervals. I liked these.

Thursday: Scheduled – 50 min tempo run
Completed – Turkey Trot 10k (47:10 time, 7:36 pace)

Friday: Scheduled – Tina’s strength workout 8C and 3 mile run
Completed – I don’t remember if I I did 8C or not, but I found this photo on my camera roll. I guess I covered the planned 3 miles and walked to 5?

Saturday: Scheduled – Tina’s strength workout 3A
Completed – I went with Nicole to the gym near our mom’s house. I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical and then did 65% of 3A since Nicole and I were in a hurry to get to Steve’s birthday party!

Sunday: Scheduled – 16 mile run
Completed – Totally forgot about this!! I was not in the mood to run 16 miles in the dark or on the treadmill (uh, yikes!) so I ran for an hour on the treadmill and glided for an hour on the elliptical. 13 miles total.

Monday: Scheduled – Tina’s strength workout 3B + treadmill hill hike
Completed – did everything as scheduled, except I bicycled instead of the “treadmill hike”

Tuesday: Scheduled – 5 mile recovery run + core workout
Completed – I think I did this? Can’t find any pictures. I remember baking these cupcakes afterwards!

Wednesday: Scheduled – 6×600 track
Completed – 6×600 sprints with fast 200 meter jog between intervals. I definitely didn’t want to do this, but I’m happy I just went to the gym and got it over with.

Thursday: Scheduled – 30 minute tempo run
Completed – NOTHING! I needed a rest day so I took one! I won’t skip this week’s tempo run though, promise.

Friday: Scheduled – Tina’s strength workout 3C and quick 3 mile run
Completed – after Katie’s play, I did the 3 miles and then heavily modified 3C to take 1/3 of the time. It was 11:15 PM when I finished so you get why I wanted out. ;)

Saturday: Scheduled – Tina’s strength workout 4A
Completed – 1 mile warm up, abs, modified 4A (ran 400m instead of front squats for the 4 sets)

Next time I won’t wait eleven days, promise.

    I noticed. In fact, it’s all I’ve been thinking about for the past 11 days, Lauren. “I wonder how she’s keeping her girlish figure….” or “I hope she AT LEAST ran trotted like a turkey.”

    How you can read AND run (let alone sprint) is just beyond me, lady. Bravo.

    I’ll NEVER understand why race photographers always go for the lower angle… that horrible one that makes everything look weirdly large and includes the double chin. Anyways… glad to see that the cupcakes and pie are fueling you for some fast workouts :) YAY for being accountable and sticking to your schedule woooooo
