Well here we are going to review my training plans and training runs heading up the 18th of April’s. Take back the night 5K.
I am planning currently on Running the following sequence:
Mon – Speed Work, Hills or Track
Tues – 3.5 miler at super slow pace
Wed – 4.23 miler at slow pace
Thur – 7 miler at normal pace
Fri – no run
Sat – 4.23 miler at super slow
Sun – 3.5 miler at slow pace
Sometime during the week my HRM watch and footpod should arrive. At that point I will be more than ready to switch over to total HRM training and get away from this just go out and run.
Today was a great example as I ran with my sister and she complained the whole time that I was running too slow. My cheapo reebok had me at at HR or 150 – 168, when the run should have been in the 130-140 range. Now this monitor also will routinely throw up my resting HR at 85-90 BPM and max rates in the 200+s so I am not overly confident in the accuracy.
At any rate the speed for the run was 9:25 pace or so, but I could easily carry on a conversation and even yell at the daughter unit for over lagging on her bike while she went with us. Tomorrow will be the true test as I do 2 miles of hill training mixed in with about 2 miles of warm-up and cool-down.
