Workouts 07/02 - 07/08
I'm also considering signing up for some online training. It's not cheap but I would say it's reasonably priced. I don't know that I want to pay during base training though; I think I only want to sign up leading up to race training. It's something I'm considering. Possibly I would ask for it as my birthday present since I always have so much trouble coming up with "things" I want.
But without further ado and adon't:
Tuesday - 4.22 miles in 50 minutes (11:50 mm) plus walking warm up/down. I called this one running under a cartoon moon. The moon was huge and yellow and it was one of those mornings when it is just a gift to be outside and active and appreciate it all. Knowing that I was going to run the next day I only did a 2:00/1:00 but still was under 12:00 mm.
Wednesday - 4.5 miles running and walking in 1:10. I only ran about 2.5 miles after getting up and not in the mood but trying it anyway. The humidity was just brutal.
Wednesday - Did the pre-dawn runner's core workout. This workout is so good and so hard. I'm getting stronger in my core for sure but it's still a big challenge.
Friday - 4.15 in 50 (12:02 mm) plus walking warm up/down. I ran a 3:00/1:00 and it was quite clear and still. Nice run.
Saturday - Family bike ride. We all rode bikes to the park and back. I would guess it was around 7 miles or so. We let ChocolateSon lead the way and I just kept being amazed at how well he could ride. ChocolateDaughter was on the back of ChocolateWife's bike.
I planned a run of a few hours on Sunday but woke up very sick to my stomach and pretty much continued feeling crummy all day.
