Erin’s STWM marathon training, Day 9: Acceleration

Unrelated hiking photo. Deal with it.

I started day 9 with a 20 minute yoga podcast in my kitchen. After one class, I feel like 20 minutes isn’t enough, but it’s better than nothing.

My run was a 5k acceleration run, with each kilometre faster than the last. I wore my Newtons and headed out. My knees felt fine, but my calf was insanely tight by 4k, so I had to stop and stretch it. This probably gave me an advantage heading into the final lap, but what can you do? Preventing injuries is my #1 priority right now.

My splits were:

6:20
5:48
5:16
5:01
4:40

Not bad, not bad, if I do say so myself.

So, I can’t figure out how to make these Garmin embeds metric. Anyone know?
