Ok, I was a little more on my game for week 2. I got in all of my training runs, including a pretty nice pace run that I was really happy with this past weekend.
Monday – 3 miles (9:40 pace)
Treadmill run. Nuf said.
Tuesday – 4.01 miles (9:34 pace)
Since I know Goldy’s 10 mile is a hilly course, I making myself do my hilly route more often. I hit the hills for this 4 miler to start getting ready.
This was supposed to be a pace run, but I kind of forgot. Whoops. I’m hoping I can PR at Goldy’s, so I’m aiming to have my pace runs be about a 9:20-9:25 pace. It wasn’t too far off, so not a total loss, but I’ll pay more attention to my plan going forward.
Wednesday – rest
I headed to a volunteer meeting after work, so was a good day for some rest!
Thursday – 30 minute elliptical
I made myself get up early to hop on the elliptical so I could get in my cross training since I was meeting a friend for dinner after work. It was restaurant week, and we had an Italian feast!
Friday – 3.06 miles (9:29 pace)
All week we kept hearing that a big snowstorm was going to hit on Friday. The storm shifted south and we got exactly zero snowfall. I’m definitely not complaining! That meant I could still easily get outside for a run to end the work week.
Saturday – 5.05 miles (9:31 pace)
It was a chilly and windy day, something I actually wasn’t used to after a period of spring-like temps. But, the sun was out and it felt great to start doing longer runs. I always get excited about hitting the 6+ miles point in a training cycle, so I’m looking forward to next week.
Sunday – 3.02 miles (9:18 pace)
I was pleasantly surprised with this pace run and felt really good. The cold temps in the morning probably helped, but I’ll take it!
