Today was all about getting enough miles to have over 30 for the week and also getting the Beacons to over 200 miles. Two minor goals, but ones that I wanted to get done this morning. Although I really felt more like doing this
• Day: Sunday
• Time of Day: 11:05 AM
• Course: Notta Road O/B
Variables that impacted the run: Back is still a little sore and the legs felt tired. I was still a little disappointed that I didn’t race the 5K this morning, but I wasn’t in the correct headspace to run well.
• Type: Easy
• Distance: 5.01
• Time of Run: 45:58
• Pace: 9:10
• Rating (1-4): 2
• Running Streak #: 6
• Weather: Clear, 60*F, Humidity 57%, Wind 11 mph N
• Shoes Worn: New Balance Beacon 2 (201.0) – Yeah, over 200 miles on the Beacon 2 now. Not a flashy shoe, but one that I can put on and run almost any run that I do, without worrying about how my feet are going to feel when I finish.
Comments: I really didn’t run hard this morning, all I did was run comfortably for the first 4 miles and then the last one I picked up the pace a little and worked Stevens Hill harder than I have for a while. It was a good run, where I got the kinks worked out of the legs and by the time I got done my back was actually feeling pretty good.
How did this run move me towards my goal(s)? It was an easier run where I relaxed and just ran for 4.0 miles. Working harder going up Stevens Hill is something that I know that I need to work on, since hills at this point in my life are a weakness for me.
Cardio (walking, elliptical, bike, mowing, etc.) 4.02
Non Running Comments: Worked on setting up my Lenovo for SD2 since her laptop died yesterday. I don’t really use it all that much now that I have a decent keyboard for my iPad Pro. I just prefer the Apple products now, so she can have the Lenovo for as long as she wants/needs it. I just wish that Never Winter Nights was available on IOS.
