GIVEAWAY: Chick9 Clothing

First, my running.  I was OVERLY ambitious with my speed workout yesterday, and I quickly reminded myself I’m a former softball player.  

I can hit a curve ball, but am limited in running sub 8 minute miles for an extended period.

I strive to run like Janae, EMZ, MM, Kate, Raina and Sarah to name a few (there are SO MANY OF YOU I ADMIRE), but I’m realistic and know I have to work with what God provided me.

I use any excuse to post my fishy pic! ha!

2 mile warm-up @ 1.0 incline
5 x 1k’s (8.6-8.8 mph)
400 RI (recovery interval) in between each
Total run: 7 miles

The 8.6-8.8 mph was way too fast for me to keep up for 1000m (.63 miles).  I ended up reading my plan wrong (hence the title of my blog). 

Tomorrow’s tempo calls for 7 miles with 5 miles at a 7:59 pace (or 7:50 pace if I am going for a 3:40 marathon finish).
