Training for 11/21/14

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 12:58 pm

A week ago, I ran three miles along the beach in South Beach with Clark, in shorts and a sports bra, sweating my face off.

Today, I bundled up myself and Pepper for a MUCH colder lap around the 5.5-mile loop. I believe the temperature was already down around freezing, and then it’s pretty windy, again, on top of it.

I wasn’t sure Pepper would tolerate it. There’s a point where it’s just too cold for him and he freaks out. But apparently we’re not there yet, because he was fine.

It really wasn’t that bad once we got moving. The wind was only in our faces for less than a mile, and it was near the end anyway. The best part was when it was at our back — it was blowing dead leaves past us from behind, which made Pepper seem to think they were chasing him haha. Eventually he figured out they were harmless.

I don’t have much planned for this coming weekend. I mean, there are two runs on the schedule to finish out the first week of Shamrock Marathon training, a 5-miler at goal pace and a 10-mile long run, but other than that, I’ll just be trying to work through the initial onset of NASCAR withdrawal.
