Wednesday, March 30, 2011

It was the ides of March.  There is no other explanation for my complete absence from running these past three weeks.  I just didn't want to, couldn't wake up, and felt horrible every single day.  Well, I'm back!

Today's Run: 2.0 miles in 20:14 minutes

It's basically like starting from scratch, but Nick assures me that if I am consistant that I should bounce back quickly.  I forgot how much better I feel when I get up and get moving in the morning.  I think that I am going to have to fight myself every day for a little while to do it, but eventually I will get back into my habit!

Next run: Ward 5k, April ....something.  I would like to beat my last 5k time of 29 minutes.  My goal is going to be 28:28.  Here we go!

Today's Goal: 6 miles

Today's Workout: 3.2 miles in 33 minutes

Today was a nice morning, so after my run I decided to run around the street at a sprint.  Sort of to test the waters of the outdoor run.  Man!  Treadmill running is so much different than outdoor running!  I have a lot of work to do.

Today's Goal: Easy Run, 3 miles at 11:24 per mile
Today's Workout: 3 miles in 30 minutes, 10 minutes per mile

I had to hurry today, I slept in and still wanted to get a run in before N left for work.  Basically I had a time crunch and it helped me run faster than I needed too.  This is totally how I work, I love a deadline and I work well under pressure, even when it is self created.  Some call it procrastination, I call it motivation.  I think I might do this more often...

Today's Goal: 4 miles, including 2 miles @ 9:41, cool down
Today's Workout: 4 miles in 41:40 minutes, 503 calories

The details: I ran for 1 mile at 5.5 pace, roughly 11:00 min. mile. Then I ran at 6.5 for another mile, then varied between 5 and 5.5 for 1/2 mile and then another mile at 6.5, Last 1/2 mile was all the way from 7.0 down to 5.0.

I am not running the Salt Lake Half, it is just too dang expensive.  75 dollars, that is a lot of money and I just couldn't justify the cost.  That is what I spend per week on groceries!  Anyway, I am still training as if I were running and I am thinking of doing my own personal half marathon that morning.  If the weather is good, that is my plan.  Anyone out there care to join me?
