Week Two To A Sub-30 Minute 5K

Week Two To A Sub-30 5K

Week Two’s workouts were similar to the first week but a little bit faster and farther.

Speed Work: 8 x 400 at 2:15 to 2:20 with 1:30 jogs in between.

Easy Run: 4 to 5 miles (I did 4 at a 12 minute mile.)

Tempo: 2 miles at 10 minutes per mile.

Long Run: 7 Miles

I did manage to do one weights workout on Thursday.

I feel faster but I am finding how much I hate running on the treadmill. The speed work, because I do not have easy access to a track, is easier at the gym rather than outside but the long run was pushing my limits. I need to remember that the weather is in Florida is not conducive to fast running and being inside will have to work for now.

I did deviate from the plan on Saturday when instead of doing the second Easy Run of 2 to 3 miles I sat in PJ’s all day. J went to Disney with a friend and left me the house to myself. I caught up on TV and enjoyed not doing anything productive.

To sum it all up, I think this plan is working and I cannot wait for my first post-plan race.
