Another week in workouts is done.
I kicked off November returning to the things I love – hills! My runs haven’t had any real structure or purpose over the past 6 weeks post Vermont 50k. Early in the week I felt a need to change that with a little sly speed work and returning to hill repeats. And I hit a double digit run too.
20 minutes Arc Trainer
20 minutes Stepmill
Bullet proof leg circuit
DB renegade row w/ push up
Cable row with reverse lunge
Banded pull ups
DB bicep curl/tricep ext
3.6 mile run
I had a short window of time to get my run in so I made the best of the 30 minutes that I had. It had been some time since I’ve done any speed work so I did 1 minute pick ups at every mile. It felt good and Max enjoyed the little bursts of speed.
30 minutes Stepmill intervals
DB bench press
Incline DB bench press
DB pull overs
SA cable row w/ balance
Split squats in btw each exercise (20,15,10,5 reps w/ increasing weight)

6 mile run
You know you have a BRF (best running friend) when she texts you with the same exact running plan. Great minds think alike! As much as the mega hill in town kicks our butt, Kyle and I both missed it. We eased back into it with 2 easy repeats that were the farthest thing from easy. How were we able to do 8 repeats before? The old saying, “Use it or lose it” is accurate.
6 mile run
Twenty four degrees. That’s the temp when I took off for my run – the coldest run of the season (so far). There was a bit of wind so that made it a little more nippy. At this time of year, I always forget what I should wear. I want to overdress because I’m cold to begin with. However, I like to run cold so less is more. I’m glad I ditched a layer before I took off. A long sleeve hoodie with a tank underneath was perfect. Must.remember.for.next.time.
10 mile run
I had no plan for my run on Sunday. When Kyle asked if I wanted to join up with a group of other Six03 peeps for a long run, I said why not? The majority of the group was doing 16 miles but I tapped out at 10. It was my first double digit run since Vermont. It felt really good to be back up there!
