Running strong and plant powered

Workouts … last week today – March 20

WeeklyWrapI’m joining the Weekly Wrap link up hosted by Holly at HoHoRuns and Tricia at MissSippiPiddlin.

I’m continuing to add HIIT from 12 minute athlete and Planks to my routine, and it is going well.  My legs/arms aren’t as sore from using the different muscles that I’m not used to.

This is how my week lined out…

 

 

Sunday – Rest

Monday – 6 miles slow (average pace 11:03) & 1 min plank

Tuesday – 4 miles easy + strides (4x 20 sec. with 2 min recovery) & 1 min 10 sec plank

3.15 workout

Wednesday – HIIT & 1 min 15 sec plank

3.16 hiit

Thursday – 1 min 25 sec plank. Workout plan got derailed by the hubs wanting to go out for Pho, couldn’t resist an impromptu date night with my sweetheart!

Friday – 4 miles (.5 mile slow, 3 mi fast, .5 mile slow) & 1 min 30 sec plank & HIIT

3.18 workout

03.182 hiit

Saturday – 5 miles slow (average pace 11:02)

 

TOTAL Miles = 19

    I added a short plyometric workout twice a week and I’m definitely noticing a difference in my running-will definitely have to check out the 12 Minute Athlete App so I can have some variety to my workouts 🙂 Have a good week!

      I have a couple half marathons coming up… Run Like a Diva in Galveston at the end of April and Running with the Cows near KC in mid-May.

    I’m excited to do more workouts like this when I’m done with my race and am not spending so much time training. Early this year I changed my blog name, but I used to be Running on Lentils since I’m plant-based too (although, as I posted in my recap, I tried seafood this weekend, which is pretty crazy for me.)

    You had a very strong week of training. I down loaded the 12 minute workout app I’m going to try it. Thanks for the recommendation and inspiration. I see you are training for a Run Like A Diva half. I did the one in Peachtree City, GA. It’s one of the nicest finisher medals I’ve ever received, but it was a hot day and a tough course. Don’t forget to pick up your tiara while out on the course. So many ladies missed them at the race I did. Thanks for linking with us Vicki.

    Looks like you got in alot of great workouts. I try to do planks several days a week along with some other strength stuff like wall sits for my quads.

    Sounds like a nice week of training! I do a #plankaday of at least a minute each day. Have a great week!

    Looks like a good week of training! I need to add more cross training in too! Just checked out the 12 minute athlete, it looks like a cool app!

    I’ve been doing planks on a regular basis. I was very faithful the first 2 weeks straight but then I missed a day here and a day there. I started with 1 minute then only added sometimes 2 seconds. I did a 1.5 minute plank and I was struggling but I can tell getting to a minute is getting easier than it was. Great job on your workouts this week and thanks for linking with us again! 🙂
