It's practically been a week since I last posted, but I have good news on the running front. I ran! Not a lot, and no real long runs, but I ran. Two solid solo runs since my last post and then one speedier run with Zach. It has been a long time since we actually ran together- mostly because he's been getting up at 6:00 to run before work, and I've been sleeping in until 9, then f-ing around and finally getting around to it noon-ish. Boy have I been missing out. Dude can run. And as it turns out, so can I! Check out the difference in 8 mile times solo vs. with Zach:
8.0 miles/ 1:15:41/9:28 average pace
4.0 miles/35:36/8:55 average pace
Not bad, did a couple hills.
Saturday with Zach
8.0 miles/1:09:11/8:39 average pace
TOTAL miles for the week: 26
I'd like to be running 30 miles a week and long runs of 12+ but I'll take what I can get during this transition time. My CIM training plan starts Sept 15, so I've got a couple weeks until the real work begins.
I will get another post in before we move. Which is FRIDAY.
