Finding our stride; Week of June 02 Miles!

Tattiefritter's last post and pics inspired me. I just loved the juxtaposition of the first picture where she looks unsure with the next where it looks like she's literally trying to keep herself from flying off into the air!

So post your runs for the week!

I did 3.5 of hills today. I felt much better, temperature-wise, than last time. No cold sweats at my desk. I'm still working on figuring out the warm-weather thing. I'd much prefer it to be 50 and overcast all the time when it comes to running*

So, speaking of finding strides, I've been feeling much better. I had a hell of a week last week, feeling tired and beat down. I ramped up the training, with the upcoming tri, and was feeling it. But like usual, it just took me a bit to adjust, and I feel great and 'into it' right now.

A friend invited me to her track workout tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. I really want to go (they posted a set list that looks intriguing and fun!) but I think it would be better if I just focus on slow and steady distance until after the tri. Then I can work some speedwork into my weekly training for the halfmarathon in the fall.

What do you guys think? Is it dumb to add speedwork in this late before the tri? Should I do like my brain is trying to tell me, and wait a few weeks before joining them for the track workouts?

It's June 22. I'm not as prepared as I'd like to be, but we'll see how it goes...

I ran 32 minutes yesterday. I have no idea how far. I ran with a friend who is slower than me. I'd run ahead, circle back, and then do a sprint to catch her.

My first race (an oly) is on Sunday, so I'm taking it easy this week.

Good luck to everyone racing in the near future

Since my half-marathon was saturday (and we did a LOT of walking that day), I only did a short walk on sunday. Yesterday I decided I had to do something and I wasn't that sore really so I did a 3 mile light jog. It felt great! Around 2.5 miles or so I could feel that I had a bit of fatigue still so I walked a bit.

It was kind of cool, actually. I felt like more of a runner than I usually do on my short slow runs.

triple brick today (20 mins bike, 8 [shoulda been 10] mins run each). It took some self-butt-kicking to go but it was fun.

Got into a major downpour on the way home, never practiced so much super slow cycling. Had to "dry off and feed" my horse before feeding myself, just like a good owner would.

I just did about a 3.5 mile run through the neighborhood with one of my running friends. It was really muggy and rainy, but we survived!

Got up at 5:20 to go for a run. Only did 4k before I had to come in to use the bathroom. Argh.
