I am always the only non - eater, this vegetarian goes as bacon day support.
I headed out of the house at 7:30 a.m. to meet up with a co-worker so I could get my run in before the afternoon event. We ran downtown - seven miles. Urban running is quite different from what I am use to around my neighborhood. We ran in the bike lane when we could, ran some old brick sidewalks, some cobblestone, and there's lots of traffic even that early. It was a fun change of pace and I needed the distraction today.
My legs have felt a little tight on each of my runs this week.
Monday - 3.14 mi. average pace 9:50 (legs felt heavy) so I walked 1.35 miles and then ran a 9:15 mile
Wednesday - 3.12 mi. average pace 9:37 It was very warm out so I walked a mile. After the sun went down I felt a lot better and ran 2 mi. 8:48 and 9:08
(confession: my speed miles were on a nice down hill stretch)
|I love my Altra's - nice and light for speed work|
Friday - I ran a treadmill mile and then hit the weights and stretching for about 45 minutes
Saturday - 7 mi. average pace 9:57 I worked for my miles today, it was just one of those runs where I could have stopped at any moment and been perfectly happy
Sunday - Team Soup Run 5K (Campbell's run)
That will wrap up the week right at 20 miles.
March wrapped up at 92 miles. My goal each month is 70 miles. Sometimes I just make it and some months I accomplish a little more : )
Hopefully my legs will be more cooperative next week. I have a 15K to run April 12th and then I am taking a racing break!
Do you take a walk break and start again when your legs aren't 100%? Are you a bacon lover?
