Monday - called for stretch and strengthen - I worked my abs, arms, and ITB stretching.
Tuesday - called for 5.6k - for some reason I read 5.8k. My legs were tired due to my crappy hydrating. To solve this problem I have surrounded my desk with hydrating post-it notes! Oh yes...back to my run...so 5.8k on the trail with a 6.10 pace. This has improved by 20 seconds/km over 2 weeks ago.
Thursday - called for another 5.6k. My legs were still feeling the run from Tuesday night so I slowed down the pace to 6.20/km and did 5.8k. I am having a hard time dressing for the weather...overdressing both nights.
Friday - the schedule called for a rest day but Heather and I went for a 12.95k bike ride. I have not ridden my bike in about a year....and my butt hurt!!! It pushed my quads as there were inclines...even if they weren't noticeable inclines!! It sure didn't seem that far a ride though as Heather and I chatted the whole way. I really want to say this was my run for the day....a girl can dream, can't she!
|I could only dream of running this pace!|
|Frozen Yogurt on pizza corner in Halifax, NS.|
Stawberry/Pina Coloda yogurt, strawberries, and watermelon.
I'll be going back for sure.
I must admit that I do feel a little embarrassed when I tell my fast friends what my pace was during my runs. They are probably thinking they could walk faster than I run...but then I remember this.....
