Training for 11/20/14

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:10 pm

Yesterday, I did take Pepper for the 3-mile run on the schedule. It was the warmest part of the day, but it definitely wasn’t very much above freezing still, and it was pretty windy on top of it. I wasn’t wearing my Garmin, so I don’t know how fast exactly we were running, but Pepper was bent on getting back to his nice warm couch as soon as possible, so it felt pretty quick for an easy run. I did some strength training upstairs when we got back.

Today, I had the first speed workout of the training cycle on the schedule, three hill repeats. I went out to the Sharptown bridge. It made it all the way up to about 50 degrees today, which was nice. It was still windy though.

I did wear the Garmin today, so I’d be sure on the distance. I did a mile to warm up, then three times up and back down the bridge, plus one more mile to cool down, a total of 3.5 miles. Total time was 28:47, an 8:14/mile average, and the two miles that had hill climbs in them were 8:05 and 8:08. That went a lot better than the last time I tried to do hill repeats and threw in the towel after one measly climb because I was sucking wind so bad halfway to the top.
