Sunday funday

14 Aug

I don’t really like that saying, but hey it rhymes and I couldn’t think of anything else. 

What’d you do this weekend?

This weekend I trained for our upcoming Wicked 10K that we are going to try to run (gasp) some of.  Leanne found the training plan that we are using.  It’s kind of different to use a training plan, I never have before, but I think it’s a good idea since this is the first time that both of us are going to run a race. 

Anyway, on Friday we ran 2 miles at a 13:55, I think, pace.  I ran the whole thing!  Whoo hoo! 

 Saturday Leanne had a tempo run on tap.  We had a one mile warm up, 3 mile tempo run at 11:50 pace, and a 1 mile cool down.  So that’s 5 miles in all.  I did the warm up and ran 1.5 straight through of the 3 miles.  I had to take a walk break at 1.5, I walked for about 1/2 a mile ran a little, took a walk break, then I ran the 1/2 mile back to the start.  We walked our cool down at the end.  I wish I could have run farther than 1.5 without stopping, but hey, progress is progress. 

Today is a rest day, but I am doing laundry and all that good stuff since tomorrow….


I’m excited, but I just don’t know what to expect…  I guess we’ll see what happens…

Suggestions?  I’ll take ’em if you got ’em!
