Last Week's Training
Monday (10/3) - 21 minutes of PSP
Our flight back from San Francisco was later in the day so I did 21 minutes of PSP before we headed home. I felt like I had to do something!

Tuesday (10/4) -5x600m repeats, circuit training style
for the active rest periods between repeats:
Assisted Neutral Grip Pull-Ups x 12 w/55lb assist
Split Squat Jumps x 30
Barbell Lunge & Press x 11/leg w/27lbs
Bench Dips x 12

Wednesday (10/5) - 60-60s on the treadmill
My 30-30s have been upgraded to 60-60s (60s @ 5K pace, 60s recovery @ 6.0mph)! This week had 6x(60s-60s). I continue to enjoy this workout. It'll definitely find its way into my winter training regimen.

Thursday (10/6) - Zumba
We had an another awesome turnout for Zumba! There were at least 6 people there and it just made the class actually seem like a class instead of a private lesson. I felt really on key too; everything came to me easily.

Friday (10/7) - 5 miles @ base pace
Easy five miler! It was wonderful running weather.

Saturday (10/8) - Rest
I think I slept through most of this day. hearts the Benadryl!

Sunday (10/9) - 3 mile @ recovery
I'd been having a nasty allergic reaction to some bites, and wasn't feeling up to the scheduled 3-mile tempo run, so I hopped on the treadmill instead.

Total Mileage: 15.2
