Cue happy face and green text!
Sunday 11/9: 5.64 miles, 40:18 (7:08 pace).
Monday 11/10: 4.53 miles, 33:29 (7:24 pace). Ran laps around my neighborhood in the dark. Wasn't the greatest, but wasn't as awful as I anticipated.
Tuesday 11/11: 0 miles, 1 hour power yoga.
Wednesday 11/12: 4.03 miles, 29:15 (7:16 pace). More laps around my neighborhood in the dark, however it was SO COLD I broke out the fleece lined tights I bought from Athleta. It is too early to be this cold!
Thursday 11/13: 0 miles, gluteus medius and hip flexor workouts from Runner's World. I definitely got cocky with these as they seemed easy at the time. The next day I was sore!
Friday 11/14: 0 miles. The PLAN was to get a run in before the hubs left for work (the only time that was going to work that day for a run) but he had to go buy a carbon monoxide detector so no run for me. The best laid plans...I'm happy to report our home is carbon monoxide free.
Saturday 11/15: 6.27 miles, 46:05 (7:21 pace). More cold air and more fleece tights. I am working on my LSD (long slow distance) run pace, even though I'm not sure exactly what that is yet. (Sidebar: I have been thinking a lot about pace lately. Check back on Thursday morning to get my thoughts.) I was trying to slow it down to 7:30 for this run but was not successful. My mile splits:
Mile 1 7:23
Mile 2 7:18
Mile 3 7:28 (close!)
Mile 4 7:18
Mile 5 7:19
Mile 6 7:21
Mile 7 7:20
