From the top!
Monday 8.0 miles/1:06:08/8:16 average pace
2 miles warm up, then 4 miles Tempo pace, then 2 miles cool down. It was HOT, and I was working very hard during the tempo portion of the run. I got a really bad side stitch halfway through, so I had to take a pretty long break to be able to continue, but I finished. My 4 Tempo miles averaged 7:34. I think that's a bit fast to be a proper tempo run, maybe closer to mile repeats, but oh well. Zach is fast and I'm not about to fall behind. :P
Tuesday morning: 500 meter swim in 12 minutes. Had to get to work early so I didn't have enough time for 1000. Also the pool was packed and I was not really feeling it.
Tuesday 3.0 miles/26:53/8:58 average pace
It was much cooler out, but I took it easy since my side was still a little sore from the previous day's cramp. Kinda weird, but not really. Anyone else ever have a side cramp that you could kinda feel for a couple days? This wasn't the first time it's happened to me.
Wednesday 8.0 miles/1:16:42/9:36 average pace
Group run with Zach and Maritza, plus all those other random people. :) Maritza and I ran together till the last couple miles and got all caught up. I miss running with her! She's doing the half marathon in a couple weeks too, then running the NYC Marathon in November. I loaned her my Pfitzinger book last night- she's thinking of using the training plan for NY. Go Mitzi! Check out her blog at www.marathonmaritza.blogspot.com She rocks :)
Thursday morning (goodness it's already Thursday?!?!) I went to the pool EARLY and swam 1500 meters!! WHOO HOO! It took me 35 minutes, which isn't bad considering that's only the second time I have ever swam that distance. That's nearly a mile! Yay me.
