Some lifting and 4

10 Mar

I rode the elliptical rider for 20 minutes on Monday and then lifted some weights…upper body. I am pretty sore today even though I didn’t really push it.

The weatherforcast was 71 degrees and raining. When I stepped ouside, in shorts and t-shirt it was 49 and overcast. At first I thought it would be too cold, but turns out it was actually really nice. My hands were a bit chilled, but it was not bad.

I planned on doing 3, but felt good and did another loop. I think running on the treadmill is helping me keep my pace.  I did have a few walking breaks, but my overall pace was 10:35, which I am happy with, considering I have not run outside in almost 2 weeks. I need to have a sub 10:30 pace to beat my 1/2 marathon PR…I think that’s possible. Starting next week I plan on incorporating interval training again.

    I think that 10:35 pace with a few walking breaks put you right on schedule for your goal pace. I find that races make a huge difference with the tapering, excitement, fan support, and competition.

    Don’t forget those gloves.
