Here are my workouts since my last post:
Thursday- Rest day
Friday- 10 miles
It was a windy afternoon but, I had a really great run. I ran 10 hilly miles near my work. I love running this route. It is 5 miles of rolling hilly climb (698 feet) then I hit the turn around point and have 5 miles of rolling hilly downhill. I used to run this route a few times a month before I had my babies. Now I only get to run it once in awhile. Here are my mile splits.
This run was a total confidence booster for me. I feel that I held back during the first 5 miles and I tried to pick up the pace on the way back in.
Saturday - Rest day
Sunday- 10K (1 mile warm up with 5 miles at Tempo pace) It was a wonderful chilly morning. It's crazy how fast the weather can shift. It was 55 degrees when I left the house, that's down right chilly compared to the 85 degree mornings of July and August. I ran the first mile easy and then I eased into a faster pace. Here are my mile splits:
Mile 6 -7:43
.28-2:07 (7:33 pace)
|Can you hurry up and come back already?!|
Tuesday- I did circuit training/strength training
Today- 4 miles. I ran a one mile warm up, then 3 miles Tempo
Mile 3 7:09
Mile 4 7:28
On Friday I have an 11 miler planned. I'm going to try to find a route that isn't as hilly as last weeks 10 miler. I want to try to focus on even pacing with some negative splits for the final miles.
