Run 2, Week 1 (BTHR-P2) + Run 2, Week 6 (CT5K): Late Starts & Slow Runs!
Posted Oct 18 2008 2:35pm
This is going to be a super-short post today:
Went for my solo run at 5:24 pm tonight. It was 39 degrees outside. On today's schedule was 45 minutes of running. Ran a total of 6 laps (4.44 miles) today in 52:43 minutes today, or an 11:52 minute-mile pace. (No comment necessary; at this point, you can probably read my mind! Or if not, just look at the title of this post or my reactions to recent runs from the past week or two & you'll get the drift. ;-) )
Barely finished my solo run in time for my next run with my friend. Thankfully, my friend was running late today, as it gave me enough time to finish plus a few minutes to spare. Basically, my cool-down walk turned into the warm-up walk for our joint run. ;-)
Next, my friend & I ran our next run at around 6:20 pm or so. We did two intervals of 10 minutes each, separated by a 3 minute interval. It went really well.
Took usual regimen of vitamins & glucosamine chondroitin pills. Aside from being tremendously tired from poor quality sleep, the runs otherwise felt good. I didn't have a lot of energy today, but given my lack of sleep & kooky eating as of late, I guess this is about par for the course.
OK, that about does it for tonight's post. See ya!
