1. With the Ragnar Relay out of the way I have started to think about what's next on the running front. I really had my heart set on running three half marathons this year and there just happen to be 2 in October that I could do. One is two hours away and the other only 40 minutes. I am leaning towards the closer one. The closer one is on the route I did my first half marathon on and I would love a redo at that route.
If I do end up doing a half marathon in October, my plan after that is to cut back on the running for a couple of months after that and not do any runs longer than an hour until after the New Year.
The only other race I have my heart set on this year is a 5k that falls conveniently on my birthday
2. Yesterday's long run started out a little rough and I wondered if I was going to make it to the 10 miles that I was planning on running. By mile three I was feeling pretty good and my last three miles were the fastest three miles of the run.. I was feeling awesome! I ended up running more than
3. I feel like I am finally starting to get back on track with working out in general. I was a bit of a slacker for awhile. So far this week I have done three HIIT workouts all bodyweight, so I am hoping to get in one more maybe Friday or Saturday and use my kettlebell or weights a little. I have ran 16 miles. Not a lot, but not bad either for two runs. I will run Saturday for sure and maybe a short run tomorrow after work if I get off on time. Yoga is a little slacking, I have only done it once this week. I am planning a session either tonight or tomorrow morning and that may be it for the week!
I love negative splitting runs and races--it's the best feeling. Glad you are getting into a good groove!ReplyDelete
Don't you love it when a long run turns out like that!ReplyDelete
There is the Chase Hawks 1/2 here in town on Oct.19th I think as well. Just another option for ya! ;)ReplyDelete
I cannot imagine that you EVER slack off! Glad you had such a great run.ReplyDelete
A lot of times, I feel so out of energy at mile 2, but by mile 4 of the run, I feel fine. Happens all of the time!ReplyDelete
