Tuesday: I had to work 2 midnight shifts so today was a rest day.. but I did manage to do my PT stuff and core work....I need to really step up my core exercises! I also finally had the nerve to open this baby and read it:
Wednesday: Tempo 10...My plan today was to start this run off on the slower end and to have a negative split at the end. So here are my mile splits:
Mile 1: 8:23
Mile 2: 8:19
Mile 3: 8:06
Mile 4: 8:00
Mile 5: 7:47
Mile 6: 7:35
Mile 7: 7:23
Mile 8: 7:03
Mile 9: 6:53
Mile 10: 6:40
I finished this run feeling like I could have just kept going and going! LOVE it!
So to finish off a fantastic day Angel and I went to see Spirit of the Marathon II with a group of MAC runners! This movie was so inspirational and got me thinking of what my future racing goals are. I have to laugh because normally in movies there is a ton of popcorn chomping and soda slurping but NOT in a theater filled with marathon runners!!!!
Today was a lifting/core day for me...I am really trying to be good with this cross training and strengthening because when I start my MCM training cycle I want to be in tip top shape!
I am working this weekend so no races for me but there is the 23rd Run the Westside Way on Saturday June 15th @ Kelly's Logan House in Wilmington starting at 8:30am and the 26th Paul Schlosser Memorial Sprint Triathlon at St. Andrews School on Sunday June 16th....And if you are down south there are a lot of races to enjoy...10th Annual Georgetown Library 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Walk on Friday June 14th @ 7pm, 3rd Irish Eyes 5K Dash (Irish Eyes in Milton, DE) Saturday June 15th @ 8 am, and 22nd Fathers Day 5k Run (Rehoboth Ale House, Rehoboth, DE) Sunday June 16th @ 7:30 am!
Anyone racing this weekend?
Anyone else see Spirit of the Marathon?
