Galloway 10k Training Week 4

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.
