So yesterday was a pretty busy day. I ran a virtual race, cleaned the house and FINALLY saw The Hunger Games!!! I read this book (the series) around Christmas and loved it. I pretty much told everyone I know that they had to read it. Needless to say, I have been very excited to see the movie. On to my “race”……
The plan was to run 5 miles at race pace per my training plan. About four miles in I remembered I still needed to do my race and didn’t think I could do another “fast” run this week. So I turned my 5 into 6.2.
My only goal for the first five miles was to run each mile in under ten minutes. Epic fail! (Below you will see my splits) So when I saw my fourth mile split, I might have lost my cool, started crying and kicked a tree. I swear I can’t run without crying, what is wrong with me? I was SO pissed that I couldn’t even accomplish one goal. I have been working my ass off to no avail. So after a quick pity party, I picked myself up and finished the fifth mile strong (while still crying). I used the sixth mile as a cool down of an 11 minute mile.
My final 10k time was 1:02:45, I really don’t think I could have gone any faster so I guess I will have to be happy with it. My final 5 mile training time was 49:24. Overall it was under a ten minute mile, but not the point. I wanted each mile under ten. Luckily I do not have another pace run until next week. Maybe I will wake up fast next week, we’ll see.
Mile 1- 9:51
Mile 2- 9:49
Mile 3- 9:50
Mile 4- 10:14
Mile 5- 9:38
Mile 6- 11:03
Mile 6.2- 2:20
I finally bought this:
I have wanted to try them for some time. The bag was kind of pricey, so I was a little nervous to try them. D.H said if I didn’t like them he could put them in his shakes, good man. Honestly they do not have much taste, I added them to my salad and I can see adding them to a lot of things. Score!
Oh and I woke up to this:
|Maybe a treadmill run today????|
I am so sore today, I guess this is the biggest difference between training runs. When I do speed, I hurt. My back is really sore, I figure this has to do with the weight I am carrying. I am really trying to work on this. I am still 5 lbs heavier than when we moved nearly a year ago. So in 5 lbs. I will be back to square one, how many times am I going to be here?
I have at least found a super yummy breakfast that is about 225 calories:
