This week was another great week in terms of weather for running – every single one of my runs, including my speed training (8×400 m) was done outside.
Here’s a look at week 7 of my Cleveland half marathon training:
Overall, here is how the week looked:
This week was the first time that I used my Garmin Fenix to help with interval training. I typically do speed work inside on a treadmill, but I opted to try it outside, since it was 50s in the morning. It was actually kind of fun to do my intervals outside – my only issue was that some of the runs were uphill and some were downhill. But I guess that is good for training in real world conditions?
Here were some of my splits:
I didn’t get in a really long run this weekend. I had a 10k race on the schedule, but since my parents were in town, I decided to take the weekend off from running. Instead, on the two days I was scheduled to not run, I did a 7 and 5 miler.
Next week is another 9 miler and then the following week I signed up for the Cleveland 10 miler! It will be my longest race since 2017!
Some questions for you:
- Do you like 10 mile races?
- Do you do speed training outside?
