Two runs, an ass-kicking and a training plan

Monday (day off from work)

– 3.1 mile run to Fremont Bridge and back, 29:36
– Athletic Step Interval class at the gym β€” my first-ever step class, combined with strength and ab intervals (a delightful ass-kicking)


– 7 x 400 speed intervals on the treadmill; total of 4.5 miles in 50 minutes

I tweaked a Hal Higdon 5K training plan to fit my limited time frame (from 8 weeks to 4 weeks until the V-Day 5K) and moved the days around slightly since the race lands on a Saturday instead of a Sunday.

If you check out the plan, I jumped into Week 5 with the 7 x 400, having done 3 miles yesterday and the rest working out quite well for my schedule.

Hopefully this’ll help me earn a new PR… perhaps under 28:30? We shall see!
