The screen shot from my 8 mile run. I was completely shocked that I ran 8 miles in just a little over an hour. Oh to do that again. The first and last time I ran those 8 miles was in November of last year when the weather was still agreeable. I keep looking at this screen shot thinking about the half-marathon that I want to run. Is it possible that on my first ever half that I could make it a run to remember? Tossing around serious thoughts of a two hour half. TOTALLY possible and a little daunting, because that's really fast. hah. That's like 8 minute miles. Right now, I run 8:30s and to cut my mile down by another 30 seconds would take some work. Goals, goals, goals...
I am running on the treadmill at a 2.5% grade in order to keep challenging my legs but it's NOTHING like running on the hills out here. The burn is like no other. I can round the first corner from our place and feel like I want to stop. Craziness. I go into a zone though AND without my iPod something that is near impossible at the gym. Me and the iPod are inseparable.
Going to yoga/pilates this afternoon. Dragging the babies along. It's my cross-training day so I take it easy. Looking to do a 2 mile run and an hour of yoga. Yesterday, I ran 5.7 a good start to my 20 mile week, ya think?
Silent cheerleaders what's on the agenda?
