Today's Workout: 3 mile easy run at an 8:49 pace.
Tomorrow's Workout: REST
Saturdays RACE DAY!
I'm getting antsy to run my race. It's easier to not meet your goals when you don't tell the whole world what your goal is. Now I'm gonna feel like a loser if I fail.:) I guess that gives me some added motivation!
The esposo told me today that he's really losing motivation to workout. He was a football player, not a runner, but I convinced him to run the Swiss Days 10k with me on September 5th. That gives us roughly a month to train. He ran it last year with me a few months after I had BabyJ and vowed never to run a 10k again. He's gonna be hooked before he knows it.
Anyways, I decided to use the Runner's World SmartCoach to make a 4 week training schedule for myself. I want to try and run the race at a 7:35 pace, which I think may be stretching it because two parts are uphill and it isn't considered to be the easiest 10k. I printed out the schedule but I'm so confused why it has me running my easy and long runs at a 9:18 pace. I don't really understand how that's gonna translate to a 7:35 pace. Maybe I need to keep looking for a better schedule...If anyone out there has used SmartCoach or another short schedule with success, please let me know! I have no idea what to do.
Maybe I'll make my own schedule using the McMillan Running Calculator Marlene sent me.
