I am finally healthy and feeling good except for some heel pain, but overall I am ready to rock this week's training. I have been so out of sorts for weeks on end! Between traveling and sickness, I am just ready to get back to it!! 7.5 weeks till my first Half Marathon!!!!!
I was able to get some running in while visiting family in Oklahoma City!
Hello 39 degrees!!! It was 39 degrees on my runs this weekend, a huge difference from the 93 degrees we've been having in Florida and a very welcome change!!!
I completed a 4.5 mile tempo run! Overall time was pretty fast for me ( pretty close to race pace!!)
Check it out!
1 mile warm up - 9:20 - whoops - pretty close to tempo pace!
1st tempo - 9:11
2nd tempo - 8:46
3rd tempo - 8:59
.5 mile cooldown - 9:17 - whoops -
Overall, I had a totally successful tempo run!! Yay!!
Also got in about 6 miles of my 7 mile long run, partly due to GPS issues and not knowing how far I had gone ( found out after, that I was a bit short) and also because I got the "poopy cramps" ( sorry if that is TMI) as B.o.B. calls them !! My stomach was going crazy and I thought I was pretty close to 7.0 miles....here are the stats!
6 miles/ total time 57.16/ 9.32 pace
Not too shabby!! I am starting to be able to do longer distances at a faster pace. My long runs are still on the schedule for 10:30-11:15 pace but I am finding that I can't make my body do that, the 9:00's are becoming comfortable for me!!!
I am back on track and plan to do plenty of posts this week and I think I am finally caught up on everyone's blogs! I did a few comments from my phone while away, but I will definately be better this week!!!!
