New this week: Insanity! It was a spur of the moment workout.. Chris bought the DVDs about a month ago, and I wanted a quick workout before we had to head out for the day. I had originally planned on running Saturday but moved it to Sunday morning.We did one of the Plyometric Cardio Circuit DVDs and it was intense! I made it through, though so I was proud of myself. However, yesterday my calves were so sore I didn’t know how I was going to get through my long run!
So, the long run was actually the first for marathon training! It was pretty hot and muggy out so I wasn’t very motivated to get going, and plus my calves were really hurting. I eventually put on my running clothes and got out the door for 8 miles. Its much easier to run when you have a set plan instead of saying “I’m going to run whatever I feel like” — I end up running less than I’d run if I had a plan laid out with a number of miles on it. So, 8 it was. The legs didn’t hurt that bad while running, they hurt more to walk!
Total Distance – 8.35 miles
Total Time – 1:27:14
Average Pace – 10:26/mile
It felt so good to be done with! I can’t wait for the weather to cool down a bit.
