I did my long run on Sunday and tried something different. I tried to go at an easy pace. Have you heard of Jack Daniels? According to Wikipedia: Jack Tupper … Continue reading Sunday’s long run and Jack Daniels’ Running Calculator
Today was the Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon. This was my third time doing Portland’s Rock’n’Roll Half. I like doing this race because it’s a fun one with an awesome and … Continue reading 2014 Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon
I did two miles today. It was a nice short run. It was a lot hotter than when I usually run. It was 81 degrees F out! But it didn’t really bother me, I was just real sweaty at the end. Anyway, this is my last run before the half marathon. I’m getting excited! Can’t wait to go to the Expo on Saturday and see all the running stuff and pick up my packet! It should be fun!
Are you excited for an event coming up?
I’m always looking for new songs to put on my running playlist. Here’s what’s on my playlist right now. I really like Demons and On Top of the World from Imagine Dragons right now. What songs do you love listening to you when you run or workout?
You will need to download the free Spotify software or app to listen to my playlist.
I haven’t been strictly following a certain half marathon schedule but mostly it’s been a version of Hal Higdon’s intermediate schedule and this one http://www.logyourrun.com/index.php?option=com_program&task=view&Itemid=65&graphics&start_date=2011-03-17&type&id=284 . I did three miles today and it was a tempo run. I ran easy for the first mile and built up my speed for the second mile and some of the third mile. Then I ran easy for the last part of the third mile. My splits were 8:31, 8:10, and 8:35. Not bad, I guess.
It was a nice day to run and was already hot at 61 degrees Fahrenheit at 8:52 in the morning. That’s hot for Oregon right now! I think it’s supposed to reach 90 degrees. Well, hope you have a great day! Stay cool! 🙂
Today’s run was a four miler. It was a nice day out and is supposed to get around 82 degrees out later on. According to Garmin Connect it was 50 degrees out when I was running but felt much hotter. I ran the four miles at a pretty fast pace. My last mile was really fast at 8:11 min. I had passed a runner at the light and then she sped past me a little later. I thought I was fast, she’s a speed demon lol. I think that’s what made me go faster on my last mile. Well, five more days until my half marathon!
Are you running or working out today? Happy Tuesday!
Today’s run wasn’t a good one. I was planning on running at least ten miles today but that didn’t happen. I’m not sure what happened or why I ended up getting a bad side ache which made me stop running. On top of that I stumbled and fell due to a crack in the sidewalk around 8.5 miles. Boy, did I feel stupid lol. I’m not sure if anyone saw. But I had a bad run day. I don’t think I drank enough water before my run and I didn’t carry any. Oh wells. I just hope I do well on my half marathon next Sunday.
I got in an evening run today. I decided to do a 5k today to see what my 5k time was like and I sure went fast! My hard work has payed off. This is my fastest run ever! 🙂
My half marathon is approaching fast. I’ll probably cross train tomorrow and do a workout DVD. Then I have my long run on Sunday. After that it’s one more week and Sunday is the big day!! Getting excited!
Do you have an event coming up or a big race?
