Anyway, I ran Saturday, Sunday and Monday. One weird aspect of last weeks training was the interesting fact that I weighed 166.4 lbs for 5 straight days (using a scale with a resolution of 0.2 lbs). This has never happened before, and would probably be very difficult for anyone to replicate.
SaturdayWent out for 45 minutes at HR135 on Saturday morning. The tendency on weekends is to sleep in a bit. This will not be good in the summer when it gets hot and sticky. Unfortunately, Allison woke us up at 6am, but I managed to sleep until 7:45am. She was sick most of the day with a 101-102F fever and just plain lethargic.
The run was a slog and just plain slow. Basically made it under 9 minutes per mile by the skin of my teeth and the HR vs. pace degraded again as I ran.
SundayThe big decision here was whether or not to run or not run. The decision in the end was to do 45 minutes at HR135. Basically for this 2nd week (Sun-Sat) of HADD training, I will do a typical week 1 schedule but take off 15 minutes of each run. Next week (week 3), I'll add those 15 minutes back on.
The run was pretty much as crappy as Saturday's run. Slightly faster and slightly lower HR. Though there was nothing to write home about.
Also did W2D1 of the 100 push-ups challenge. Did 11-14-10-10-15 with 60 seconds rest. The first set was supposed to be 14, but misread on my phone. Followed this all up with another 4+ hours of yard work. Fun. Fun. Fun.
