Monday- 7 miles. 9:00 pace Red faced= hard workout, smile because I didn’t completely fall apart.
* I want to start by saying my prayers are with those affected by the bombs at the Boston Marathon yesterday. I can not believe that something like that would happen during such a wonderful event. All of the hard work and dedication people put into running and then it’s ruined by something so devastating.
Runners, we stick together
I started yesterday morning watching the Boston Marathon(like many of you). I was motivated to run and couldn’t wait to get my run on. I stopped watching to get going, and came back after my run to find the news buzzing about the horrific news. I got goosebumps and instantly thought of my neighbor who was running and her family who was there to support her.
It seems so surreal. I’m so glad my neighbor and her family are alright and my prayers are with the families, volunteers, and runners that were affected by this. I hope as runners, we can stick together and keep running and motivating each other.
Last week I was able to accomplish 2/3 goals. I did have 2 rest days and one day on the bike. I wanted to cross train/rest more this week than past weeks. I also had 2+ days that involved strength training.
I also had a speed session where my pace was below a 8min/mile.
I didn’t do a great job of eating healthy snacks, although I wasn’t horrible:/
1. Eat better/healthier snacks
2. 1 more speed session before race
3. Bring the mileage back up(last week I only hit 15 miles, so get back up to 20-25)
