Week 5, Workout 1 30-35 minute run
The weather was cool out and breezy. Nick and I ran 30 minutes, 2.64 miles. This is 1/10th of a mile farther than my best run which was in Week 3, Workout 2 where I felt Unstoppable!!! Pretty excited that I am getting a little faster.
Week 5, Workout 2 30-35 minute run
This was the Color in Motion race. It is advertised as a 5K, but Kellie and I both clocked it with our Nike watches, and came up with approximately a three-mile route. I ran 3.02 miles in 35:15. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t a full 5K, but really enjoyed the race. More about this run in the Color in Motion post. I will say, this is the first time I ran the entire 3 miles, so I was pretty darn excited about that!
Week 5, Workout 3 4 mile run (Actual: 3.6 miles)
Apparently, I was so excited about my run yesterday that I forgot to charge my watch. Therefore, 2.6 miles into my run, my watch battery died. I estimated the rest of the route, not knowing how long or far I was running. I knew I’d be short of the 4 miles, but I gave it a good effort. When I got home, I used Google Maps to figure out the distance of the remainder of my run, which was an additional mile. Therefore, my total run was 3.6 miles. I did take a few walk breaks; I was expecting this because I ran the Color in Motion yesterday and my body isn’t used to running two days in a row. Overall, I’m satisfied with this run.
