Week 10 is checked off! I’m getting excited, I kinda wish it would hurry up. But then that would be wishing away my favorite time of the year. I am dreaming of Turkey and Dressing already. Oh, and Pumpkin Pie.
I’m so excited to announce that I’m a Zooma Women’s Races Texas Ambassador for the 2014 race in the Hill Country! It’s April 12 and they offer 5k, 10k and Half distance. Come join me and use the code TXAMB9 for 10% off your registration!
Training this week:
Sunday: Gym day, light weights, abs and cardio.
Monday: Walked the track a few times while Ally was practicing, just to loosen up my legs.
Tuesday: Ran 4 miles, 9:16 pace
Wednesday: Ran 8 miles, 10:06 pace
Thursday: Walked 4 miles, 13:30 pace
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Ran 13 miles, 9:21 pace
This week I made these very yummy egg quiche/muffin things again! They don’t last long in our house. The original recipe is here. I used spinach instead of broccoli and added canadian bacon.
Tuesday’s glorious 4 mile run in perfect temps!
And my longest mid-week run, 8 miles, under a perfect clear sky full of stars!
Then we get to Saturday, 13 miles, 75 degrees, 300% humidity! But still a good pace. Oh and my heart rate monitor strap chaffed me, it’s unpleasant to say the least.
I use body glide but apparently not well enough this morning. This is the first time the HRM strap has done that.
This morning’s run was the hardest but I still had a great pace. I’m hopeful I’ll be able to push myself when I need to in the marathon. Now all I have to do is double what I did today! (YIKES!!)
The long runs are about to get crazy and I have 2 halfs coming up. If I’m going to run 13 miles I might as well get a medal for it!
Did you race this weekend?
Did you workout?
Any big plans?
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
