We ran 6 speedy miles and chatted the whole time! I then spent the day with my family at my cousins house and got to catch up with everyone ... plus I got to hang with my favorite boys:
|Me and the Hubs|
Ok so to catch up ... last weekend we were at the beach for my hubby's softball tournament and I was able to squeeze in a pretty stellar run. Since my Garmin is toast I downloaded the app MapMyRun+ and I love it! So this is what my run looked like:
I ran from the tournament fields out to Ocean Pines and ran through the neighborhood until I hit the 5 mile mark then I turned around and ran back to the fields. I LOVE running in new places and just going out to explore.. plus I always feel like I run faster because the area is new to me. I love that this app talks to me and lets me know my pace per mile and total distance!
I also ran my favorite Hill Pyramid TM workout this past week ... This run is always a nice quad burner and makes the run go by fast. I start of with a 1% incline and increase every 2 minutes by .5% incline until I reach my max incline ( usually 5% ) then I decrease by .5% every 2 minutes until flat road. Repeat as long as you want to go!
I did a little cross training and lifting as well as some core work too.
I am now in taper mode for my marathon this weekend ... so yesterday I did a nice easy 7 miles in 51 minutes and today I ran with Angel for a good 8.5 mile run. I am getting excited for this race and I am looking forward to running this course again!
I posted this picture on Saturday and I have an awesome surprise for one of my readers out there! So check back in a few for a GIVEAWAY!!!
