Monday: Ran to my bank 10 miles, first 5 miles at a 7:30 minute mile pace and finished with an average 9:50 minute mile pace. I also stopped at the gym for a 30 minute stretch before running back home.
Tuesday: Ran to the shop up the top of the hill and back home. 3.5 miles to coffee shop and 2.5 back both at moderate to fast speed. Total 6 miles.
Wednesday: Boot camp, no spin tonight. Boot was an hour long with Tony the torture chamber tonight with lots of burpies, push-ups, and sit-ups to warm up and a circuit to finish. Very challenging but rewarding workout tonight. I must add that i had a 2.5 hour dynamic workout before boot camp tonight. I did some sideway shuffles with the two rubber bands on my legs, lunges from one side of the room to the other, did some leg curls laying on my back legs on a giant ball and curling the ball back and i also did some donkey kicks on a machine. I did a couple sets of each of these and i also did a lot of different dynamic stretches. Good day overall.
Thursday: 3 mile walk home from the coffee shop, i felt a little tired and sore from my workout yesterday. A walk is better than hitting the couch.
Friday: Ran to and from the shop, 5 miles around 25 minutes.
Saturday: Started TRX at VM this morning with a full hour with John. It felt a bit difficult, i felt a lot of pain throughout the class from most of the exercises. Is early to figure out how and if TRX is going to help me in my running. At this point i think that any workout i get at the gym is welcomed. I feel lucky to have found a place where i feel i belong and feel at my element. John and all the staff have been awesome and Veronica, Shirley, and Korina have been an inspiration every day. They all have motivated me in a different way to push myself to the limit. Spin was also a full hour and it felt composed. I don't know if John was taking it easy on us or if i was having one of those days. We did do a set of the 30 second sprints that totally drains me. The sweating was also amazing as i soaked my shirt and a pair of other garment. Great day, and an amazing week. Feel like i will arrive to Marine Ultra Trail in a great form.
