A Sunday Run

I was so excited to tell you all about our fashionable evening that I didn’t even mention my WOD and run this morning.

Perfect running shoes

After a late evening, and a couple cocktails, I was surprised to wake up feeling fairly good.

I have been working on intentionally hydrating and getting more water in, and I think that is a big reason that, while I’ve had a little more fun than normal, I have still been able to kick out some good workouts.  

H20 + Nuun = good for this runner.

Workout of the Day: 4 miles speed work on the treadmill 

The workout was all over the place, but I felt strong so I just kind of went with it.  Here is what I remember:

  • 1 mile warm up (about 945 pace)
  • An 800 at about 800 pace
  • 400 recovery @ 945 pace
  • 10 minutes: 1 minute at 8.0 pace, 1 minute at 6.1 pace
  • Finish out varying between 6.4 and 8.0
  • Finished at 35:30 for 4 miles

Then did brief upper body work and was NICE and sweaty

Overall, a good, quick and sweaty work out.  My favorite

Pile On the Miles Update

With a 1 mile walk Friday, 6.6 mile run yesterday, and 4 mile run today, I’m up to 38.85 miles for November.  

My goal for the month is 100, so I know I will be pushing it. . . but just knowing how high my goal was is challenging me to get out there and move!

At this point…I think I am bowing out of Officially doing Piper’s 30 day thigh challenge.  I will continue to do it on days that I can fit it in, but the two challenges combined were starting to interfere with one another (my legs aren’t going to want to run as that thigh challenge got further).

I will still absolutely do some of the workouts though. . . so I’ll keep you up to date when I do!

Alright, back to relaxing 🙂 

I’ll be back later with an old favorite: Silent Sunday!

Question of the Afternoon:  How are you doing with your healthy goals/challenges this November?

  1. I think you can make it to 100! Break that down & it’s only 25/week! Easy brezzy right? I’m doing POTM too and it is pretty motivating. So far I’m on schedule for my goal.

  2. You can totally do the 100 miles! I just know it!

    I’m surprised, I’m still doing the thigh challenge. I thought for sure that I would forget about it…hmm I definitely should add up my miles cause I have NO IDEA where I’m at!
