Week 5 was a little different than previous weeks, calling for some fast runs as well as back-to-back runs on Friday and Saturday to get used to running on tired legs. My right quad felt pretty tight on Saturday’s run and sore afterwards so I’ve been icing and taking ibuprofen. I might take a few more days off to rest it.
Monday – Rest
Wednesday – P90X Ab Ripper X
Thursday – P90X3 Dynamix
This workout is amazing for runners! At just 30 minutes, it incorporates a lot of yoga and other stretching moves, as well as, strengthening moves to target glutes, hips and legs.
Friday – 3 miles jog-pace (plan called for 10:34/mile)
I like how running slower allows you to focus on your running form – I’m always working on improving running form and trying to keep my landing light.
Sunday – Rest
