Sorry no pictures today, just a quick post about my last 3 runs. :( I good news is that I finally did it.......
One week till the Lucky 7m Race, I am so excited. I even bought some green nail polish. I have a long run today or tomorrow, then a little tapering. I haven’t talked to you in so long, I have had a couple runs.
I wasn’t feeling so hot on Wednesday so I just did 2.5 miles on the TM. I started at 5 and increase the speed every two minutes and at 6.5. The total time for the run was- 27:00. I also did Shred, but my head hurt so it was extremely hard.
Thursday was a run day and run I did. It was beautiful out I planned my run around the coffee house. 5 miles ended directly in front of place. I grabbed water (tons) and an iced coffee, and then walked the last mile home. It was such a beautiful day so I walked down to Josh’s school to volunteer (which I do every Thursday and Friday). Once I got back home I was at 8 miles for the day.
Here are my splits from my 5 miles-
Mile 1- 9:26 <--- Do you see that? Under 10, and in my first mile!!!
Mile 2- 10:02
Mile 3- 10:17
Mile 4- 10:26
Mile 5- 11:26
Well, look at that. I finally got my first mile inder 12, but I got slower as I went. My legs were super tired after two miles, I really had to push through. Mile 1 at a bit of a decline, mile 2 was fairly flat, a few rolling hills. Mile 3 was a gradual decline that last most of the mile. Mile 4 was rolling hills, and mile 5 was UP hill (and about killed me). Even though my time was awesome (51 minutes) those splits SUCK. I will continue to do what I do, start out much slower, I really prefer looking at negative splits.
Yesterday was a busy (and another beautiful) day. I started the day with 10 minutes on the stair climber, followed by a 50 minute spin class. I couldn’t resist when I got home and decided to head out. I only did 2.5 because my legs were super tired. I didn’t even time myself. It was a great
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Marissa has softball tryouts/evaluations today, wish her luck. Joshua misses the cut off by 5 days so he will be doing coach pitch this year. Did I tell you Marissa's track season starts next week too. I love Spring!
I am so excited for the race and our weekend away next week. Racecation anyone?
