Hooray! After many weeks of laziness I am back! I got all my scheduled runs in this week…..which is only 3 and I actually rode my bike one day.
I am following the Jeff Galloway training plan for the Princess 1/2 and I have 20 weeks. Its basically 2 weekly runs of 30-45 minutes, 1 long run and some cross training each week.
This week the “long run” was only 3 miles….and each week I will tack on to it until race day.
Today I decided to sleep in and avoid the cold – which forced me to go to the gym to get my run in for the free childcare…… see this year, NO EXCUSES! I felt great today and took it easy. I was huffing and puffing on Tuesday, less on Thursday and almost not at all today until I was at 2.4 miles.
While I for sure prefer being outside for my runs, I do love how I can play with the pace on the machine. I started with my runs being 5.0 mph and when I would go back to a run, I added .1 to the pace to change it up. I started my walks at 4.0 and went to 4.4.
While I don’t love being at 13 minute miles…I want to be faster, one of the things I have vowed to do this year is force myself to slow down on the “long runs”.
I am mindful of what I eat and will blog about that tomorrow….. I have been doing great for the past 2 weeks though. Fuel of the body is important to get good output and to heal injuries…well that is how I see it so putting it to the test.
I got new shoes and was thinking they might be a tad big, but I tell ya, the left one if fine, the right one a bit big. I was thinking of taking them back but after today, not sure. SIGH.
Oh and my Chi running form is falling into place though I know its not perfect by any means. It sure does alleviate the effort. No pains while running, though right now, I can feel the left heel – inside, mid way up.
Got to get some yoga in!
Happy Sunday All!
