Notes to Self: W1, D2

Finished 2.18 mile route in 34:00 for a 15:36 pace.

The 3rd 10 minute free form run replicated the 2nd 10 minute pattern.

Faster today than yesterday.

The plan is based on completing a 5K. I plan on finishing the 5 mile Feaster Five. Again. In better time. I have one month.

Instead of following the structured plan and increasing running intervals to 30 seconds running/1 minute walking next week, I want to see how far I can get if I kept going with these 15 second running intervals. What will happen if I cover my almost 5 mile route using these intervals? Can I cover 5 miles at this pace? How much better pace can I get my 5 mile finish times compared to recent practice all walking loops?

Next week: Repeat intervals for greater distance.

    Doing laps around Boston on Route 128? Did you know there is a song about that?

    Bear with me...

    one two three four five six
    Roadrunner, roadrunner
    Going faster miles an hour
    Gonna drive past the Stop 'n' Shop
    With the radio on

    I'm in love with Massachusetts
    And the neon when it's cold outside
    And the highway when it's late at night
    Got the radio on
    I'm like the roadrunner

    I'm in love with modern moonlight
    Route 128 when it's dark outside
    I'm in love with Massachusetts
    I'm in love with the radio on
    It helps me from being alone late at night
    It helps me from being lonely late at night
    I don't feel so bad now in the car
    Don't feel so alone, got the radio on
    Like the roadrunner
    That's right

    Said welcome to the spirit of 1956
    Patient in the bushes next to '57
    The highway is your girlfriend as you go by quick
    Suburban trees, suburban speed
    And it smells like heaven(thunder)
    And I say roadrunner once
    Roadrunner twice
    I'm in love with rock & roll and I'll be out all night
    That's right

    Well now
    Roadrunner, roadrunner
    Going faster miles an hour
    Gonna drive to the Stop 'n' Shop
    With the radio on at night
    And me in love with modern moonlight
    Me in love with modern rock & roll
    Modern girls and modern rock & roll
    Don't feel so alone, got the radio on
    Like the roadrunner
    O.K., now you sing Modern Lovers

    (Radio On!)
    I got the AM
    (Radio On!)
    Got the car, got 68-RKO
    (Radio On!)
    Got the AM sound, got the
    (Radio On!)
    Got the rockin' modern neon sound
    (Radio On!)
    I got the car from Massachusetts, got the
    (Radio On!)
    I got the power of Massachusetts when it's late at night
    (Radio On!)
    I got the modern sounds of modern Massachusetts
    I've got the world, got the turnpike, got the
    I've got the, got the power of the AM
    Got the, late at night, (?), rock & roll late at night
    The factories and the auto signs got the power of modern sounds

    I am not into running. do enjoy walking every day. Way to go writing your won plan of action. WE can complete the journey on day at a time. its like Bab's status for today
    The only person you should try and be better than is he person you were yesterday.
    Just rewrite to the only
    The next run I do next should be better then the last one I did emoticon

    You beat your own time! Good job. That's what I find is the most helpful for me is measuring my successes (or lack thereof!) compared to my own "bests".

    Good luck and you're doing it! Good job.
