Run 14-4 minute intervals

Monday, August 08, 2011

Today I ran 4 4 minute intervals. It felt good. I have not had any knee issues today; everything feels good. This weekend I ordered a jog wallet so I can take my cell phone, id, and gate key more easily.


Run # 13

Friday, August 05, 2011

Today I decided to try a 4 minute interval and see how it felt. It felt pretty good, and I ended up doing two of them. Then I did 2 3 minute intervals or running after that. So I did 14 minutes of running instead of 15. Breathing wise it felt pretty good, but the extra minute seems to tax the muscles and they don't recover as fast. I left the boat earlier since I woke up earlier, so I did a total of 35 minutes today, 21 walking and 14 running. Next week 4 minute intervals. I am starting to have some knee soreness after my run, but I am fine when I am running. I probably need to start back on some additional exercises to strenghten my quads and calves. Will monitor very closely as I don't want to hurt my knees.


An even dozen-The twelfth run

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Today was a weird one. My leg muscles felt like they never really loosened up to run, especially my right calf. Everything just was really tight, and it was hard to do the running intervals. Actually, walking was a bit hard too. Everything still feels tight. I stretched some before I left. I even stopped between intervals to try and stretch out a little more. And I stretched after. But nothing has made any difference. I guess I just have tight muscles today.


Run #11

I stayed with five 3 minute intervals today. I think it is getting easier. I took my new water bottle with me and that seemed to help too. It gets rid of the slimey mouth, don't know where that comes from. I drank 24 oz while out running this morning.


Run #10

Friday, July 29, 2011

Today I made my goal of 5 intervals of 3 minutes of running each. This makes my run time and walk time approximately equal for the first time. Hooray! I don't think I am quite ready to bump to 4 minutes of running next week though. I may try a 4 minute interval on Monday and see how it goes, but 3 still feels pretty challenging, and it isn't like I am in a rush to run a marathon. All I want to do is be healthier and more fit....okay, and maybe drop a few more pounds too :-)
