Progress Today

Workout today: 4 miles at a 7:36 pace on the treadmill.

Goal workout tomorrow: 10-20 minute warm-up, 10 x 400m (400m RI), 10 minute cool-down

Thought: "You must do the thing you think you cannot do." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Tonight was one of those workouts I was fighting to finish. The last time I ran was 6 days ago because I slacked off while visiting my family and I have a feeling I'm going to pay for it this week. My half-marathon is getting closer and I really want to meet my 1:45 goal. (That's an 8:00 minute mile.) Hopefully I tear up tomorrow's speed work, and get prepared this week for my 15 miler this weekend. I've never run farther than a half marathon so it should be interesting.


  1. NIce pace! I really need to get better with my speedwork if I ever want to do more than just barely break 2 hours on a half marathon.

    Hope your runs go well this week.

  2. Yay I am so happy to see you back in the blogging world :) Love your running blog, it motivates me and reminds me that I need to be accountable for my workouts too. It really helps one to stay on track!
