Training Week in Review

Three runs again this week, with two occurring outside and one on the treadmill. Sadly I didn’t get to any cross-training this week.

Monday: 35 minutes of yoga.

Tuesday: an hour on the treadmill of a 2 kilometre warm-up, 4 X1.6 km intervals at my 10 km pace of ~5:00 minutes/km…mistakenly I ran the first interval at almost a ~4:40 minutes/kilometre pace which caused me to take a 30 second pause halfway through my third and fourth intervals. I walked for 90 seconds, 100 seconds, 110 seconds then 120 seconds between intervals…then finished with a 1.6 kilometre cool down.

Wednesday: one hour massage!

Thursday: ran outside in a snowstorm for a little over 8 kilometres at a ~6:43 minute/kilometre pace.

Saturday: 20 minutes of yoga.

Sunday: 16 km LSD run at a ~6:52 minute/kilometre pace. It was slushy, slippery and I was a bit tired but it was good to get the distance in as it was the furthest I’ve run since last October.

Next week, 16 km LSD next weekend, hills for one run and a combo pace workout, plus a couple of days of yoga as I found two yoga DVD’s for very cheap at Target 😉

I hope that you are feeling good and strong.

Photograph of the week

I had driven by this particular place a number of times during the last week and had wanted to snap a few pics, finally, on a surprise free afternoon I stopped.

The setting, the trees and the fact that the snow is almost covering the headstones and shooting it in black and white helps with the light but also fits the scene.

As always thanks for stopping by, this and all of my photos can be found over at 500px.

Keep Shooting!
