Sunday morning I ran the Queens 10K and added some extra miles to complete a 9 mile training run. The heat wave is finally “over” but it was still 80 degrees and humid. I felt very out of shape during the race. This was a great learning experience for me… I SHOULD BE TRAINING MORE!!! After the Eugene Marathon I basically took off from running. I’m now regretting that idea. Taking three months off makes starting up training a lot more difficult. Lesson learned!
Last year at this time I ran a 10K in 46 minutes. That’s a 7:26 pace. This year… I finished in 51:21 minutes, a 8:17 pace. Yikes.
Here’s my schedule for this week (busy!):
Monday: Pure Barre
Tuesday: 3 miles + Pure Barre
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday: 3 miles + Andrew Belle Concert!!!
Saturday or Sunday: 12 mile long run! and a beach trip!
