Week 9 Recap

Monday

Monday was my makeup for Sunday — a hills workout on the dreadmill since San Jose is relatively flat. I did 6% incline for 90 sec, recover, 7% for 1 min, recover, then repeat x 5 with a warm-up and cool down. Not a lot of good sleep the night before… I was so ready for a nap!


Tuesday

A rest day — I spent Tuesday catching up on work and visiting my friend, husband and new baby in the hospital.

Wednesday

Wednesday was a rest day. I spent most of the day flying from Cali to Providence for work.

Thursday

After a 12-hour shift, I had to do my track workout on the dreadmill… 1200m intervals (at 5mph and 5.2mph) with recovery breaks in between. Felt really good. I wasn’t dead by the end, which was nice. Progress!

Saturday

Saturday night dreadmill run. Got a cramp in my good leg and had to walk for a few seconds midway through. But another 3 in the bank! I threw in 50 squats, 50 sit ups and 25 pushups at the end. Long run planned for Sunday…

Sunday

I landed from Providence this morning to find my race packet from the Hot Chocolate 5K Chicago on my doorstep… 2 more weeks!

Later that night, I finished off week 9 with my long(est) run: 4.5 miles. My running buddy and I took it easy, but by the end, I was still beat and a sweaty mess. I was certainly feeling Saturday night’s 3 miles + squats workout. Feeling proud though.
