Sunday started my 6 week plan I found in the Runners World magazine. I'll get to that in a little bit because I just realized I haven't posted since the 21st!
So to recap my running....
4/22 - 1.55/20:01
4/25 - 1.10/14:17
4/27 - 1.44/18:17
5/1 - 1.35/17:00
5/3 - 2.26/28:03
Today's average pace was the best out the above times at 12:24. I beat my fastest mile on 4/22 with a 10:20 mile, I walked the rest. The heat has really been making it hard on me. I got used to running in the winter, not sure how to adjust yet.
So to beat the heat today I ran on the treadmill. It turned out really good! I felt great up to about 1.5, even right at the mile I was happy as could be, jamming out to a good song actually singing while running! But a little later it got tougher, I started to walk a little bit. But when I heard my nike app tell me that I was at 2 miles I pushed it till the end.
So this 6 week plan goes like this
week one: day 1 - 1 mile day 2 - 2 1/4 day 3 - 2
week two: same
week three: day 1 - 2 day 2 - 3 1/4 day 3 - 2
week four: same
week five: day 1 - 2 day 2 - 4 1/4 day 3 - 2
week six: day 1 - 2 day 2 - 2 1/4 day 2 - 2
I was not excited about today's run but glad it went well. I think I'll just enjoy next week where I can start off with 1 mile again. I actually have a race at the end of week 2. Hubby and I are doing a 5k here in town. I'm not sure if this will hurt my training or help me.
