I've had a few muscle stains lately and a lot of people have been telling me to back off, so I did a little bit. Last week I ran a lot less than normal. I was trying for 14-16 today but decided 12.02 was good and did it in an 8:08/mile pace. Had a few traffic delays on my run and a drastic temp changes from last weekend. It's February weather once again and more frozen hair.
February 18th, 2017
A pretty decent run today. I was going for relaxed and a slower pace. I turned in 10.43 miles at an 8:04/mile pace. I had a few delays on my journey, just traffic. My first two miles came in around 8:20ish and I was a little sore, but after mile four I was feeling a lot more comfortable. Getting ready for the Ann Arbor Marathon in March and I will make headway towards my goal. So recap, I did 5 runs this week and reached 26.3 miles, so glad the weather is making a positive turn.
Three days and three runs
I've had three outstanding runs in three days. My latest was not long, but fast (for me), and in the end it felt pretty good. Last night was a brisk 6.74 at a 7:34/mile pace. I'll take that. Going for 16 on Saturday as well. A 'relaxed' 16...
On my list to buy/read
I'm really looking forward to the release of the Amy Gamble's memoir on being an Olympic athlete and a spokes person for those challenged with bi-polar. Just click on the image below for more information. I believe she is looking at a May release, but stay tuned!
