Chapter 2 page 417 - TR 156 3 laps of training goodness

Dog Days of Summer - YES, that's what we had today and this evening and still yet tonight.  HOT & HUMID!  It was 91 degrees at 7 p.m. when we started off on our "easy" 4 miler.  JH from our half mary class joined "C" and I for 3 laps (4 miles).  We had a great time - talking about different races and running clothes and training and anything else that came up.  We did a 10 minute walking warm up and then did 2:2 at about 12:00-12:30 m/m pace.  The final 2 minute run was a sprint and I pooped out after just 1:05 (WWWWAAAAAYYYYY too fast!) Oh well, it was a fun challenge and a fun way to end the running segment.  We did a 1.3 mile walking cool down (except there was NOTHING cool about this evening's weather!).  Rest day tomorrow, woo hoo.

  1. Sounds like you had a fun run!! :) (and fun company!) :) Enjoy your rest day tomorrow!

  2. Way to challenge yourself at the end of your run...that's really the best feeling when you know you have given it your all. I FINALLY read your guest post--I'm having a PF flare up at the moment and I needed the reminder that running is still OK!
