Monday - 3.01 miles, 51 minutes (16:56 mm) Lunch time walk. Rather than getting up and walking at 5:00 when it was 39, I went to work early and walked at lunch. It was 59 and gorgeous.
Tuesday - YaYog Push/Pull workout.
Thursday - 3.94 miles, 52 minutes (13:11 mm). Includes warm up/down and nice hills. Again I ran at lunch time. I concentrated on leveling my pelvis and opening my hips while running. I'd never done the hip focus and felt like it was much smoother and faster.
In spite of the bad week, I'm looking forward to more training for a few reasons.
- Officially I'll start my training plan this week. That means 2 week day runs, 1 week day walk, and the LSR or 800 repeats each weekend. I'll post the plan in the next few days.
- I've changed my work hours so that 3 days a week (the days I run and walk) I will go in at 6:30, run at lunch, and go home at the normal time. Advantages are running in the light, running when it's (theoretically) warmer, and getting to run some hills.
- My chances of completing the run 1000 miles in 2011 challenge are pretty much nil but I still think I can finish the run across Texas East to West (941 miles) challenge. That is my December goal - to finish that challenge.
