Monday: Happy Halloween! We created a circuit to do at school. I had forgotten shoes and Elizabeth forgot her water so we were a bit limited in our exercises, but it ended up being a pretty good workout.
|We did each exercise for 30 seconds and did the circuit 4 times.|
|First official run of training - done!|
Wednesday: 4 miles. Better! Only one walk break and much more consistent.
Friday: 4 miles. This run felt awesome. We both felt very strong and ache-free. We paused at the top of the bridge on the second ascent because a motorcade was going by beneath us on the interstate! Tons of cop cars, town cars with American flags in the windows, and a big RV went by before I was able to get my phone out. A helicopter followed overhead. I think it was Tim Kaine because he was in town Saturday for a rally!
|This was the best photo I could get of the motorcade.|
|We ran 4 miles, but this turned up. 6 splits for a 4 mile run? The moving time and elevation aren't right, either. What did I do that made this turn up?|
Sunday: 7.15 miles. It's been since Sanibel that we've done a long run, so I was nervous but excited. This run means we're really training and that we completed our first week with flying colors!
|Seven miles, easy 10:42 pace.|
Total mileage: 19.
Did you have a good training week?
Ooh I would have waved at Tim if I thought I saw his helicopter! Not like he would see me, but I would be a dork like that. :)ReplyDelete
Hmmm that Garmin glitch is weird. Maybe you hit the lap button twice in quick succession right after starting. That's the only thing I can think of.ReplyDelete
Great first week of training for A1A. I did not have a good week. I'm actually going to the doctor this morning for some blood work to be checked for Hashimotos again. I just can't seem to find any energy among other things. I'm hoping to get some clear results/options for moving forward, so I don't feel like I'm on a death march during every run. My go-by-effort-easy-pace is about a minute faster than it was during the summer, but at the end of each run I'm shocked because it honestly feels like I'm crawling by at a 30 minute per mile pace!
That is a strange glitch! Did you accidentally hit the lap button?ReplyDelete
What a great training week! is Elizabeth excited? I think I am super excited for her!
