Runs 156 and 157 Monday Monday

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Another 3 miles each, and not bad runs. Both on Mondays. Then Wednesdays it rained both weeks...and Friday, well, I've been blowing my Friday run. Both Fridays I worked from home, and both Fridays we were having guests over, and well, my run just kind of got lost. I need to start paying attention to Friday a bit more I think. Of course it is supposed to rain on Wednesday again. What is it with all the rain only on run days?! I have already decided if I get rained out Wed that I will just have to go Thursday instead, and then try and get my third run in on Saturday. I need at least two. Building mileage is not working really well at this point...


Run #155 Feels like going running in a hurricane

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

It was windy out there today and getting ready to rain, but the drops held off until I was on my cool down lap around the block. It is coming down pretty steadily now though. There was a nice tailwind on the way out (which kept my too long bangs in my face-really need that haircut this week) but that made a wicked headwind on the inbound leg. I ran two miles in 23.30, which is an 11.65 mile, somewhat faster than normal in spite of the wind. I am getting more serious about trying to increase mileage now. I think I have been turning in 6-6.5 mile weeks so this week I plan to do 7 if the weather allows...

Run #154 3 miles, much better.

Monday, November 26, 2012

Well, I got to bed at 12:30 last night for no good reason. I quickly revert to my night owl status when I get a few days off work. So 6:00 came pretty early...When I finally crawled out of bed an suited up my Forerunner wouldn't turn on, even though it had been charging last night. So I plugged it in again for a few minutes and started breakfast and coffee prep, but when I came back to it, it still said low battery. So I went off for my run with just my watch with the timer. I did my route to the park, which I know is about 3 miles, in 38 minutes. A little slower than normal, but I was actually trying for that. It was a good run.

Run #153 Crappy Run

Friday, November 23, 2012

Well any run is better than no run, and today I got a run in and I did need it, so it's all good. However it wasn't a very good run. Why?
1) I went much later than usual-11:00 not 6:00, so I think that threw me off. It was also much warmer than my usual run time.
2) I had a full breakfast before I went-usually I haven't eaten, or have only had a serving of fruit.
3) I had a slight headache. I thought it might help with the such luck.
4) I was having temperature control issues with hot and cold before I left. Getting hotter and sweatier didn't help.

Anyway I chalked up another 2.5 miles or so and worked off a couple glasses of wine from yesterday's festivities. emoticon


Run #152K my way-well, close enough

Monday, November 19, 2012

It's time to get serious about mileage. I ran another 3 miles this morning. I calculated that if I am running about 6 miles a week currently, and I increase my mileage by 10% each week, that means I get to add 0.6 miles a week. Last week I did 6 miles in two runs instead of 3. If I run 3 miles 3 times this week that is 9 and way over....3 today and 2.5 on Wednesday and Friday is still over.....Argh! I'm thinking 3, 3, and 2.5 and then stay with that for a couple weeks while the body adjusts....I'll see what the body allows...
