10K Training Tuesday - Week 2

Well, I hate to say it, but my first week of 10K training definitely did not go as planned. Here's the breakdown:

Monday: Nothing
Tuesday: 20 minutes speed work
Wednesday: 20 minute run with 1:1 intervals
Thursday: Nothing
Friday: Nada
Saturday: Zip
Sunday: Zilch

Would you like to hear my completely justified reasons excuses? Yes? Great!

So I woke up too late on Monday to get my walk in; "No big deal," I thought, "I'll just do it at lunch!" My coworker ended up going out to do some stuff at lunch so I had to stay behind to answer the phones. Granted, I could have marched in place for 30 minutes, but alas... I did not.

Tuesday and Wednesday were right on schedule! I did my speed work on Tuesday instead of Wednesday last week because our regular Wednesday staff meeting was switched to Tuesday. It was my first time doing speed work, and it wasn't terrible. I went pretty easy on myself since it was my first time, but I'll tweak it as I go along. I basically just ran fast for 20ish seconds, followed by a 1-minute rest (walk). This week I think I might try to jog sloooowly instead of walking during the rest period.

Thursday through Sunday, I suffered from the great Mom Cold of 2016. That's all there is to say about that! I did nothing but lay in bed, which I'm pretty sure does not count toward my training.

I'm still not feeling exactly 100%, but I did manage to do my run this morning (spitting out tons of green stuff every block or so, you're welcome).

I'm looking forward to this week of training!
