Shoulda done 16 to get 60 for the week. Nah. Didn't feel like it. But, first full week in a while. Three double digit days! And, two strength classes. Not a bad week! 6:49 average. 7:26,7:09,7:09,6:48,6:53,6:56,6:49,6:43,6:35,6:34,6:28,6:23 Sat, 10 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Fri, Mar 09, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-09-2018.html Nice morning run with Tee. 41 degrees feels much better than 21 degrees! Fri, 09 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Thu, Mar 08, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-08-2018.html Six. Total Body Conditioning and Cycle class. Tired! Thu, 08 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Mar 07, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-07-2018.html Workout with Tee. 3 mile warm up 2 x 200. 6 x 1000 with 400 recovery. 3:44,3:38, 3:37, 3:38, 3:37, 3:32. First track workout in a looooooong time. 3 mile cooldown. Under control, but sore from yesterday. Registered for Salt Lake Half. Wed, 07 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Mar 06, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-06-2018.html Easy run with Becca. Nice to have my running partner back. Zumba/Strong double class. Tue, 06 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Mar 05, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-05-2018.html Treadmill. Increasing pace by .1 mph for 15 songs. I like the new treadmills. Mon, 05 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Mar 03, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-03-2018.html Medium long run. 6:54 average. Finally feeling less beat up today. Stupid ice. Sat, 03 Mar 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Feb 28, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-28-2018.html Ran with Tee to help her out with her long workout. Not a great morning. I didn't sleep much last night and I was sore from strength class. It was snowing. We ran two milesto the trail, which seemed to have a light icy layer. I slipped and fell. My face bounced off of the cement. I re-injured my recently healed elbow. I was ready to give up. But, Tee still had to get in 4 x 2 miles with 2 minute recovery. We started the workout. .3 miles in, Tee wiped out. Now I was REALLY ready to quit. We moved to the road, and managed to get it in on a rolly (but dry) route. Tee wanted 6:30 pace or faster. First interval: 12:58 (6:28) 2nd interval: 12:48 (6:24) 3rd interval: 12:41. (6:20) I decided I was done after this. My head wasn't in it, even though we hit Tee's pace just fine. Tee did one more mile. We ran a 2 mile cooldown to finish. We're both hurting from our falls now. Wed, 28 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 27, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-27-2018.html 7 easy miles. Zumba/Strong double class at the gym. Tue, 27 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Feb 26, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-26-2018.html 2.5 mile warm up. 10 x 2 minutes on/off. 5 minute cooldown. Mon, 26 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Feb 12, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-12-2018.html Really easy recovery run. My hips are pretty sore. Longer tomorrow, and helping Tee out with her mile repeats on Wednesday. Mon, 12 Feb 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 10, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-10-2018.html A little return to racing. I thought it would be interesting to see what I could do. I haven't done much speed work. But, I have done a lot of tempo work. I'm really comfy between 6:10-6:20. I thought I could break 38. I guessed well. 5:56, 5:58,5:59,6:17,6:10,6:09. You can tell what mile we turned back into the wind. Slight downhill out, slight uphill back. Cold north wind. Decent return to racing. It was also a good effort after my Saturday/Monday long hard runs. It took most of the week to get feeling better. 3miles warm up. 3 miles cooldown. I set a Master's record by almost four minutes.
