First race of the year on the books.
Monday, February 11, 2013
I've vowed to run at least 13 races this year.
The first one, Love the run you're with was yesterday. 1 down. 12 to go!
Actually, I'd love it if I did more than 13. I've made a list of races I want to do, and it's 18 long. So I'm thinking I'll just pace it out, and see what happens!
Yesterday's race time was not good. I finished the race in just over 40 minutes, which puts me at a 13 minute mile, and according to sparkpeople, is just WALKING. Bleah.
But I feel okay about it- I only have room to improve, right?
Granted, with the weather, I haven't been putting the distance on my pedometer that I was in November- so we can also think about this as a wake-up call. One that says "Get back to running, girl!"
I'm signed up for two in March, another 5k and a 4 miler. I am going to ramp up my distance running in the next three weeks so I can do the 4 miler.
Here's my exercise plan for the next few weeks:
Monday- run 2 miles
Tuesday- abs and arms strength training, Zumba
Wednesday- run 3 miles
Thursday- abs and arms strength training, Zumba
Friday- run 4 miles
Sunday- walk/ rest
What do you think??
