I ran every day again this week!
Monday: Because I missed my long run on Sunday I really tried to "work it" for this one. I ran 3.69 miles doing 2:30/:30 intervals with the running at 7.5mph. I felt GREAT!
Tuesday: Enjoyed Monday's workout so much I repeated it. 3.73 miles doing 2:30/:30 intervals.
Wednesday: Speed Progression. 5 minute warm-up then 5 min @5mph, 4 min @5.5, 3 min @6, 2 min @6.5, 1 min @7. Walk 5 minutes. Then instead of repeating I just ran @6mph for a few minutes. Did 3 miles.
Thursday: Ran 5.5 miles. Started with 1:30/:30 intervals then switched to 2:30/:30.
Friday (today): Slow, easy run for 3.15 miles. Had some tummy issues and also my knee has a huge "road rash" kind of burn. During my morning walk with Lucy yesterday I got tangled in her leash and went down with all my weight onto my left knee. Even ripped a hole in my jeans! It didn't hurt yesterday, but today it gave me some problems.
Tomorrow I'm taking a rest day and Sunday will (hopefully) be a 7 mile long run.
Other than that, I've been experimenting in the kitchen again. I found a blog with some spicy vegan recipes, and so far I'm loving what I've made! Buffalo-style cauliflower, Sriracha Baked Tofu, and Golden Potato Soup. It's all at Fo' Reals Mom. Go check it out!
