Alrighty then! True to my word, I'm going to discuss running and running related things only in this blog (for at least one paragraph of every post)!! Here's a rundown of my week:
Monday- 10 miles ( 2 w/u, 5 @ 7:13, 2 easy, 1 @6:44) bike 10.5 miles, full upper body weights, 20 minute abs, 2 glasses of wine and no sleep!
Tuesday: 8 miles treadmill around an 8 minute pace. Basic 20 minute core routine.
Wednesday: 10 miles outside in 7 degrees. It was sunny and beautiful! (1:16/7:35 pace) This was a great run and got progressively faster each mile. Went to the gym with my hubby and did a full upper and lower body weight workout, biked 5 miles, and abs again. Rewarded myself with another 2 glasses of wine! (Rough week-I don't even drink on hockey trips anymore and now I'm drinking Monday and Wednesday!!)
Thursday-Easy 5 mile in the morning before work (41:27)
Today-First outdoor 20 since November! My hubby ran the first 6 with me and then joined me from 10-14. It was great to have the company!
I was ready to be done at 20 miles but this was a practice run in which I had no concern for time and just wanted to get it done. We were yapping quite a bit the first few miles so I was able to keep the pace down. I am gaining a little confidence here and think I will have to completely mentally shutdown to not finish Boston in the 3:20's. We'll see.
I will take tomorrow off from running and I'm planning for 12 on Sunday.
In other news, Max had a game last night and he won again! I LOVE watching him play. He is such a little stud and has a wicked shot! I might be a little biased but I speak the truth :) I'm off tomorrow with Ryan. Another day filled with 8 hours of driving and 2 hockey games. Reese plays at home again this weekend.
Good luck racers!!
Katie is going to break 45 in her 10K and knock one of her 2010 goals off the chart!!
