After over a month of traveling and partial training due to health issues, this will be my first chance at a week of consistent training to carry me into the USATF National Championships. I will be praying for God's mercy on health and weather so that all will go smoothly! I'm grateful for the ability to train and I want to make the absolute most of it!

45' easy on the grass and track + 6x200m (30" rest) in 36, 39, 37, 37, 37, 36.
40' stationary bike in place of a second run. Hoping to take some of the load off of my feet.

Tuesday, June 14th
45' w/ 6M progression on Merrifield Road with Jake. 15:20, 13:15, 11:44 2 mile splits for a 6M time of 40:20. I felt the strongest I've ever felt muscularly and mechanically, but absolutely terrible aerobically.
2x30",1x60" pedestal routine without rest.
Wednesday, June 15th
75' stationary bike with 10x30-60" surges during the last 20'.
3x100 running arm simulations with 5lb weights.
3M on the treadmill in 22:35. Eased into and felt nice and relaxed.
3 x standing core routine. I enjoyed this one... it was a fun change to the usual workouts and definitely a challenge for me.
Thursday, June 16th
15' easy + 4-6-4-2 (200m recovery) + 19' easy + 6x300 (100m recovery). The warm up felt terrible, but the mid-workout run felt much better. Goal pace was 80" for the entire workout. Actual times were 77, 2:01, 78, 36, 58, 59, 58, 57, 57, 57. Not a failure of a workout, but much more challenging aerobically than I expected so I came away a bit discouraged.
30' stationary bike instead of a second run.
3x6 leg strength workout.

Rest day for cardio work!
40' core + flexibility. Basically I put my watch on a 30" timer and just started exercising... every 30" I switched exercises. I got the entire standing core routine and pedestal routine done, as well as a majority of the back routine and several random moves. A fun way to change up my core for a day.
Saturday, June 18th
10.3M loop in 72:30 at White Rock lake... passing the 10 mile mark at 70 minutes. Not a bad run pace wise, but it was more tiring than I would have liked it to be. I intended to run the last 30' at tempo pace but settled for just finishing the run controlled.
Weekly Mileage (10' bike = 1M): 56M total... 41M of running.
