After a slow start on Monday, this has turned out to be a pretty good training week. Yesterday I had a good interval workout on the treadmill, running 9 quarter mile "laps" at 8:57 min/mi pace with about half a lap inbetween - walking most then jogging slowly into the next interval. It was a great workout. I warmed down to round out the session at 4 miles, completed in 45 min.
Today I got together with a work friend (not the same one I ran with on Tuesday) who wants to get back into running. She was a great inspiration when I was preparing for my first marathon. She has completed at least 3 marathons herself. She is a run-walker much like me - so since she is just getting back out on the road, I let her set the run - walk intervals and we did 3.5 miles together in the cool, sunny 55 deg weather. It was very nice. I think we are going to make it a regular Thursday lunchtime thing! It is nice to have a regular running partner.
Tomorrow I need to make up the strength training I didn't do today. I will probably run a few warm up miles outside. I am taking advantage of the nicer weather while we have it!
Run strong everyone! :-)
