Twas a slow week

I did not run as far as usual this week -- only 10.7 miles total. Wednesday was an assessment day so I did not get my usual 55 minute workout. Friday is always a short workout day because of the nutrition session, but I was 10 minutes late so I only had a 20 minute workout. Not good for the overall miles this week but perhaps the ole body could use the time as an extended recovery...

So today I wanted to make sure I got in a good session. After going to Weight Watchers where I weighed in down -3.6lbs (sweet!), I did 3:2 interval training for 55 miuntes for 3.5 miles. My run segments averaged 12.20 mi/mile. My last three intervals were around 11.40 which was very cool! 619 calories burned! Yay!

So the next week will be tapered a bit since my 5K is next Sunday. I am looking forward to seeing what my time will be! But for now, it is time to get ready to go to a friend's graduation from Nursing School at Loyola in Chicago. See ya!
