Planned: 3 mile run
Actual: 3.5 mile easy run
Killing time between work and Bible study
Planned: Social run
Actual: 3 mile walk
Still sore from our hike on Monday, Kelly & I decided to walk as an active recovery
Actual: 3 X 1600
Planned called for 8:31-8:48 pace. Decided to shoot for the slower end, to ensure I got through all 3. Ended up with 5 miles total after warm up & cool down. Splits: 8:35, 8:34, 8:22 – I’m faster than I realized!
Planned: 12 mile run
Didn’t do anything but 12 oz curls and walking around Nashville.
Actual: 12 mile run
Didn’t expect this run to be good, given the 12 oz curls & dinner of 1/2 an order of stadium nachos and a hot dog at the game. Surprised myself – ran this easy at a 9:33 pace!
Planned: 4 X 800
Actual: Cycling class
Shifted the schedule around a bit to allow our bodies to recover from the long run before going straight into intervals. Will tackle those 800s today.
In less than 2 weeks, I’m running a half marathon. I’m already getting nervous/excited about it. I’ve gotten so much faster these past couple of months, I have no clue what pace to shoot for (or how to pace myself through the early miles). Any wisdom you’d care to impart?
