Speed Interval Training & Biceps
Today was Speed Work and a hit at the arms!
1 mile warm up - 8:20 pace
1 mile 30/60/90 Interval Sprints- Warm up for 2 minutes on base pace- 8:20 then for 30 seconds sprint- then recovery- sprint for 60 seconds- recovery- sprint for 90 seconds recovery- Recovery Pace is the 8:20 base pace
Repeat Mile 2 with same speed intervals
1 mile cool down - 8:30 pace
It's nice to hit 6:58 pace and hold it for 90 seconds and feeling like I could go longer - great feeling to hit that pace and still kick it up a notch to an 8.7 on the tready to finish out the run!!
Between each mile- I did arm work for 5 minutes- biceps/triceps and 2 sets of ab crunches and one hit at the cybex machine to work the obliques.
I was surprised I was able to work-out today- my guts had me up a couple of times last night with that tummy bug. I didn't think I'd hold up today on my run/workout.
Between the Run & Weights- I did 1hr 20 min work-out today!
