Went for my "running for time" run today. I should have checked with Roche beforehand, but I had good reasons like:
I didn't do a tempo run last week after running a half marathon instead of the tempo run.
I wanted to do a hard run on Sunday, and take Monday off because Jen's schedule at IRT is conducive to having an off day on Monday.
I wanted to just check in with my pace on a day when I hadn't blown my legs out the day before.
So, I ran six hard miles and averaged 6:34/mile. My first two miles I averaged 6:21 per mile, and then backed off a bit. But I jammed hard the last three minutes. After that, I ran two easy "cool down miles" for a total of 8 miles. I like keeping that distance up when I can. Good training for half marathons.
I might ask Chris if I can do the interval day on Wednesday. Or maybe another tempo run....whatever he thinks would be best.
And yes, my photo.....Jen took that for a book we made where I played a very effeminite and pompous character. I think his name is Hedley. Or Peebo. Can't remember.....
*****BIG THANK YOU TO ALSION FOR THE SPLENDA WARNING!!!!!!!!
I am making the switch to stevia, and am gettin gused to the different taste. I also notice the lack of gassiness that I felt when I was a Splendaholic. I still use a little bit of Splenda with the Stevia, but am weening myself. Thanks Alison!!!!!!
