|the weekend also consisted of laughing at Bea pawing at the Chihuahua ornament -- she's not a fan.|
The first mile was actually amazing. I felt fantastic, it hadn't really started raining yet, and I hit a great 8:12 pace. I started feeling my legs protesting in the second mile, but I was still feeling ok, so I wasn't too concerned.
|at the "5K mark"|
|not the best day for a run along the Hudson|
|why is it sunny further up the river and not here?? I actually got bitter about this on the run.|
Moral of the story: do speed work earlier in the week and no crazy strength workouts until post-half-marathon!
Last week's goals
Here's how I did last week:
• 1 spin session (check!)
• 3 runs -- 1 speed session, 1 medium run, 1 long run (check-ish; should have done more than 4 miles for my medium run!)
• 2 yoga practices (FAIL. Making this a priority next week!)
• 2 strength sessions minimum (check, as my abs, back, and legs could attest!!)
Goals for this week
Focusing on making two yoga practices happen this week. And I need to use up my Refine Method classes before they expire on the 17th!
• 1 spin session
• 3 runs -- 1 speed session, 1 medium run (6 miles or more), 1 long run (11 miles)
• 2 yoga practices
• 2 strength sessions
