Easy run on the Fanno Creek Trail in Beaverton
Right after the run I headed to the pool. I actually did a varied workout instead of a straight swim:
250 warm up swim
500 intervals: 5 x 50 hard, 50 easy (hard laps were done in :45-:46)
250 cool down swim
45 minutes trainer
I took it pretty easy (no intervals) but focused on keeping my cadence high (100 ish)
8.0 miles/1:03:15/7:54 average pace
Tempo run in Forest Park:
2 miles warm up 8:59 average
6 miles tempo at 7:33 average
It was sunny but cold (mid 30s). And it was verrrrry muddy on the trail!
Tomorrow it's supposed to be nice (sunny and 50s) so I'm going to ride outside and also go swimming. Then I'm going to the free class at Lululemon in the evening. Friday is an easy run and Saturday is off. Sunday is the Shamrock Run!
My in-laws are coming to town tomorrow evening and staying through the weekend. Should be fun! They love to come watch us participate in races. :) They'll be able to get some photos too and hold our warm-up clothes, so logistically it's really convenient. I'll post again before the race. Hope everyone is having a good week!
