Miles run so far: 304.9 (clearly I need to add .1 to my mileage sometime soon to get back to an even number)
Today I did 1 mile warm-up (6.0), then 4 sets of yassos – 8.0 for .5 mile, 6.5 for .25 mile, repeat. Cooled down at 6.0 again. I think next week or the following my yassos start increasing (I’ll eventually get up to 10). Does anyone know what speeds of the treadmill translate to in terms of pace? I’m not actually sure if 8.0 is the speed I should be going for yassos or not!
This morning was also my first morning in my new schedule. Yesterday Dave and I sat down and figured out how I could best work my morning to get everything finished – especially a run. If I miss my run before 8am I have to either squeeze it in on my lunch break (not ideal) or after dinner, when it often gets shortened. So here’s my new morning schedule:
- 5am-5:45am: pump and eat a small snack while reading the bible and praying. change into running clothes.
- 5:45am-6:30am: run. On Wednesdays I have a longer run, so on those morning I’ll run til 6:45 or 7.
- 6:30am-8am: stretch, shower, eat breakfast, read, hang with Leo
This morning went really well and since Leo slept until 7:45, I even had about 20 minutes to just sit and read. It was awesome!
What are your mornings like?
PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KELLY!!!!!!
