Tuesday: Easy 2 miles before SJ class. Spin after work. We did the "jump street" workout in spin. Ouch- that's all I can say. I also did some light lifting and abs.
Wednesday: Working on some speed!
WU: 20 minutes, 2.32 miles
5 * 1000 meters with 2 minute recovery
CD: 10 minutes, 1.18 miles
Thursday: SJ class and spin after work AND some light lifting and abs. Working on my pea shooters!
Friday: I was not feeling this run AT ALL. I was exhausted by the time I got home from work and just wanted to lay on the couch. My hubby tried to talk me out of going to the gym, which gave me more of a reason to go (thanks Cam). My workout was supposed to be 3 mile tempo at my 5K race pace. I "guessed" my 5K race pace because I haven't ran a 5K in probably 2 years. Lets just say that this workout hurt. I have a feeling that my 5K next month will hurt more than my marathon!
WU: 2 miles
Tempo: 3 miles
CD: 1 mile
I was hoping that this workout would help me gauge what my 5K race pace SHOULD be. I still don't have a clue and I don't want to go out too fast and then die. Do you think that 6:45 pace would be okay????
Sunday: 8 mile run. I thought that this run would be a disaster because the first 2 miles were awful. My legs were really tight and I was feeling tired/dehydrated. After the 2 mile mark I started to loosen up and felt much better. I was shocked when I got home and looked at my Garmin- 8.01 miles in 59 flat. WooHoo! I think that I am officially ready for Houston. Speaking of Houston...here is my race outfit. :-)
Made the skirt on Saturday. I will pair the top with my black NIKE visor and my black compression sleeves.
I also finished my 2nd collage and my wonderful hubby hung them up on the wall for me. I think that they turned out pretty good!
Weekly Mileage: 23.01

Did everyone have a good training week?
What do you do with your race numbers and awards?
Does anyone else think that a 5K hurts more than a marathon?
Who is going to be in Houston next weekend?????
