Last week I had a goal of running 30 miles in a week. It was definitely taxing on the hip but with alot of rolling an some extra ice baths we got there. So to sum it up I had done a run almost everyday last week from tuesday – sunday to meet my goal. I did post about my previous runs in my last journal update in case you wanted to see that. Here is the breakdown for the rest of the runs
Friday – 9.01km at a 5.22min/km pace
Saturday – speed interval and I had left the tracking on the whole workout so it included the warm up, cool down and the light jogs in between sets. TOTAL – 10.03km
- 5x1km – 4.05/4.07/4.16/4.19/4.13
- 4x400m – 1.00 (all out) explanation below/ 1.10/1.19/1.24
Sunday – shakeout run from Sunday 3.54km at a 5.17min/km pace
So on Saturday we met an Olympic candidate’s father who was biking by and saw us doing sprints on the trail and had asked us to race him. At first we were a little skeptical but he explained that he would race his son who did a 800m in 1.48 min (link of his times below). So it all made sense and because of that we did an all out sprint with him which to be honest made the rest of the workout so much harder. Especially after doing the 1km sprints. I also spent a very good portion of Saturday morning just rolling out my hip to make sure it was prepared for the sprint and it actually worked out pretty well. There was no pain during the workout but i did feel it later in the day. Overall the I am happy I made my goal and was able to help out the current movement going on.
Thanks for reading I hope that everyone is enjoying their runs!
Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
