I went running today with a friend. Unbeknownst to me she decided it was 10 min./mile time and I pooped out after one time around the Dyker Beach Golf course (2.17 miles), but holy crap you guys! I keot up a 10 min./mile pace for over 2 miles! That is exciting. I was wondering why I was struggling and my legs were getting tired. I thought I was just tired from biking all week to school, which I guess played a role in my legs being tired, but jeeze.
I was just very happy that I was able to keep up with her. She's usually faster than me. Not today! We kept at the same pace.
Bike miles this week: 18
Running miles this week: 7.17
Tomorrow morning we're doing a long distance run . . . 5.5 miles. I wanted to do 6, but slow steps are better. I think we might also squeeze in a few more miles on Sunday.
Potentially looking at a 15.6 mile week for runs, 33.6 miles overall.
Told you I was hardcore. ;)
Oh! Plus I did Pilates twice this week. Good core strength workouts.
