Week 4, Workout 1 25-30 minute run (Actual 1 mile)
Went for a run today. I was in a time crunch. I got off of work, took the dogs for a walk, had to run, get washed up and dressed for dinner with coworkers. Therefore, my run was a short one. It was cool outside, so my breathing was a little erratic. I was glad that my run was only 1 mile, time 11:08.
Week 4, Workout 2 25-30 minute run
The weather was nice today, temperature 70 degrees with humidity. We ran outside today. I’m a little disappointed because my GPS on my Nike watch never picked up, so I only have the foot pod data. In the first 10 minutes, I always want to stop running and start walking. I realized if I can make it past the 12 minute mark, I usually can continue the run without any problems. I ran 2.1 miles in 25 minutes. Overall, it was a good run.
Week 4, Workout 3 4 mile run
Well, it’s been a week since my shoes have hit the road. I was determined to run today. Nick and I walked the dogs, and it started raining at the end of the walk. The rain subsided and we decided to take our chances, there was no way I was going to run 4 miles on the treadmill. I ran the first mile, then I did run/walk intervals for the remaining 3 miles. The weather was very humid, making breathing a little difficult.
This was my longest run ever. After my first mile, I thought there was no way I would be able to finish the rest. Nick ran at my pace and walked when I needed to walk. This was helpful, and probably why I didn’t give up. It took 50:03 to complete the 4 miles, making my average pace 12’29″/mile.
