The last time I posted was last Wednesday when I ran 45 minutes on the treadmill.
Thursday was Phase 1 Workout 2 of NROLFW. Not really much to report there.
Friday called for 30 minutes easy. I ran out side and knocked out 3.5 miles in about 35 minutes. I felt great and the pace I kept was super comfortable. I could’ve gone fast/further, but didn’t want to push myself too hard since it was the day before my long run.
Saturday called for an hour and a half run. I did about an hour and 15 minutes before I called it quits due to thirst. I need to figure out a way to get around this. Running with a water bottle in my hand is 100% out of the question. According to mapmyrun.com I did 7 miles on the nose.
It wasn’t my best run. My legs felt like dead weight. Most of my run was on Comm Ave, which is a hilly bitch, for lack of a better word. I’m all for training on hills, but good Lord it was awful.
I think I might start taking Friday’s off from running instead of doing the 30 minutes easy to help keep my legs fresh.
In other news, we put up our Christmas tree last Wednesday night! He’s crooked and short, but kind of adorable 🙂
Today’s schedule calls for a 5 mile run. My friend also talked me into doing a yoga class tonight.
We all know how my last experience went, so we’ll see how this goes. It’s a slow flow class, so I’m thinking I won’t be quite so out of my league as I usually am.
One can hope, right?
