Week six done! Six more to go! I’m half way there!This week was a bit different, a little of a surprise if you should say. First my tempo run on Tuesday was hard to accomplish.
This was the exercise and although I was not able to run at that pace 2 miles without stopping, I did finish at the allotted time. So what I did was four 1 mile repeats with probably a little longer than a 1 minute recovery ;P
Saturday for my long run I forgot my GPS watch, so I had to run with the Nike+ app on my phone. Since we are not allowed to wear headphones while on group runs I had no idea how fast or slow I was running. It was hot and humid and I was feeling so heavy. Since my phone was stashed away in my fueling belt I didn’t check it much. I honestly thought I was doing horribly, Virginia Beach horribly, but to my surprise I actually finished my 13 miles at a normal pace for me, yay!
The next two weeks are going to be weird. Because I’m following my NYC Marathon training I’m on a bit of a different schedule than my group. It hasn’t been a problem until now. See, the group is only running 14 miles this coming Saturday and I have to run 18. Then next week the group is running 20-22 and I’m going down to 14. I kinda wanna swap weekends, but wouldn’t that be contradictory to my “official training”. I guess I should talk to my coaches, the group coaches and the virtual coach. Too many training plans to follow LOL
