Let me start by wishing all my fellow RunDisney runners good luck as they compete in the various races at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. It does feel weird waking up this morning and just doing a training run. For the last 3 years I have been down in Florida participating. Unfortunately, with trying to complete the 50 States Half Marathons and Disney continuing to increase prices, they have now priced me out of their races. However, good luck to everyone, run safely & enjoy the experience!
Monday (1/5): I ran 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym at lunch. The settings were 6.9 mph at 1% incline which equated to a 8:52 pace.
Tuesday (1/6): I did one hour of yoga at the gym at lunch.
Wednesday (1/7): I ran 4.3 miles with my running group from work at 5:30 a.m (pace 8;42).
Thursday (1/8): No workout – I was supposed to do a Tempo Run; however, after my chiropractor visit, she said my hip was a mess and needed the night off, so I moved it to Friday night
Friday (1/9): For the second week of my adding a special run, on Friday I did a Tempo Run on the treadmill at the house. I started with a slow jog for 10 minutes (pace: 10:05). For the next 20 minutes, the tempo portion, I ran at a 8:16 pace. Finally, I did a 10 minute cool down (11:00 pace).
Saturday (1/10): Today we had six coming out for the group run. It was 36 degrees and felt like 30 degrees with the 7-10 mph winds. We ran 9 miles on the West Ashley Greenway. It was a great run other than the cold weather. We had a few new runners to the group as well. What was great about running the Greenway, is that we start behind the Starbucks at South Windermere Shopping Center, so when we finished, we went in for coffee and hot chocolate to warm up.
This week I got a surprise in the mail. I completed multiple races with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Series in 2014 and they sent me a completer medal for their “Heavy Medal Club”. Check it out, it is pretty sweet.
