|I use these cold packs I got at CVS to ice my feet after runs|
|My typical post run snack is a cup of greek yogurt and a glass of chocolate milk|
The mileage is starting to pick up and I'm feeling stronger. I'm definitely excited that next week will be my first race for this cycle (Chili Bowl Classic 5k). Right now my goal is just to break 17. Hopefully, it will be a good indicator of how my training is progressing.
This week's runs:
Monday: 6.81 miles (9:28 pace)
Tuesday: 10.65 miles (9:03 pace)
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: Tempo Run - 5x 1.09 mile loop = 5.45 miles. My goal is still to run 6:30 per loop (5:58 pace). Splits were 6:38, 6:29, 6:35, 6:42, 6:39. Total distance with warmup and cooldown was 7.49 miles. A sloppy workout as I was above goal pace for all but one lap. At least I didn't fall off the pace too badly. I realized this week that this was actually the first time in my life that I've ever ran hard for more then 5 miles! When I looked at it from that perspective it wasn't such a bad workout :)
Friday: Rest Day (went to see Les Miserables at the Palace Theatre!)
Saturday: 7.84 miles (7:57 pace)
Sunday: 4.8 miles (8:28 pace)
Total mileage: 37.6 miles
Do you have a routine that you follow after your runs? What is your favorite post run snack?
