Keep the Miles Coming!

I feel like I am finally in training again!!

Friday late afternoon, when it was 90* out, feels like 95*, I did a hot 5 miles at around a 10:30 pace. I was just excited to have done it and felt good!

Saturday... well, we blew off Bikram since it was gorgeous out and T and I went to eat dinner on the water. The deal w/ the roomie was we'd get up for her to do yoga at 8 and me to run 8 miles. I got up and did my 8 miles in two runs. I brought the noodle pup at first, but she didn't do so well. We did about 4.4, and then I went on my own for the remaining and did 3.7 to be safe. They were slow, but I did it!

Last night, my Garmin hadn't charged and I had had a little wine so I just ran a quick mile around the block.

14 more miles added on!

Mileage Goal: 117/1000

More days; More miles!

So I got to my 5K late on Wednesday night, so no chip for me. I did have my trusty Garmin so I wasn't worried though. I finished the 5K at a 9:12 pace (better than last week!!!) and then jogged it out to get around 3.5 miles. That gets me to 101 miles for the year.

Last night, my roomie and I went out for a super easy jog. She is just getting back into running, so it was exciting that she ran 2 miles with me (and the pups) instead of walking! Go Roomie!

Mileage Goal: 103/1000

Today I finish work earlier than usual, so I hope to get a 4-5 mile run in again. Tomorrow I'm probably going to do Bikram Yoga with friends again and possibly an easy 2 miles. Sunday the goal is a long run (~8miles)

Let the training begin!

A Bunch of Little Updates

So I am slowly getting into training. Working partially in public education, these next 3 weeks are going to be crazy and then life will slow down. Right now, I leave my house too early (before 7am usually) to have time for a morning run. During the summer, I won't have to leave until about 8:15 at the earliest. In my summer schedule I have also squeezed in my midday Fitness Pilates class at the gym that I love as much as possible. And no more Satuday work!

So I hope I can remember all the runs since the 30th. I'm sure I did a short one that day... say 2 miles. I know I did 3 at the gym before yoga one day. I began a Summer Sunstroke 5K series (every Wed at 7pm for 12 weeks) last week, so that's another 3.1. Last Friday, I had an awesome run where I didn't look at my watch until I finished and it was 5.3 at a solid 10min pace. The next morning I ran another 2miles. I'm sure there was at least one more run in there somewhere, but I can't remember. I will just give myself that .1 from tomorrow's 5K.

I'm at 97.5/1000! Haha.... I need to get moving on this goal. Literately!
