I was looking forward to my run today so that I could use my new walk/run timer. I set it to 4 minutes run 1 minute walk. It took me a long time to get outside for my run because when I got up the temp was only 25 degrees. When I did finally hit the road after 10:00 it made it up to 32. But that meant I had to wear my jacket. I have only had to wear my jacket a few times this winter so far.
My legs felt a little hard because I had done the elliptical machine on Thursday and only took one day off to rest. I will have to account for that in my future to see how I recover. I did a 3.31 mile run in 34 minutes. I think I am getting wrapped up in my timing and shouldn’t. I did the walk/run to help preserve my leg and I think because of the colder temps today my pace was slower. So I did a 10:22 per mile run instead of my usual 10:00 per mile run. I’ll see what happens as I keep training with the run/walk/run method.
A favorite post run thing I love is my glass of skim milk with ovaltine!
All in all, I’m happy with the progress and this approach to training for a half marathon and will be glad tomorrow when I wake up, have a cup of tea and won’t have to rush out the door for anything. Sundays are good for that.
