Week 3, Day 2: Mean Climb!!

  • 6:15 P.M.
  • Time: 32:22 Minutes
  • Distance: 2.5 Miles
  • Pace: 12:33
  • MPH: 4.78
  • Route: House Out & Back

The weather has been NASTY! With the high winds, freezing cold air & rain, we haven’t done as much running this last week as we would have liked. To avoid getting sick, we ellected to stay in the house. Yesterday, the sun peaked out for a few minutes and we went for our run. When you click the Route link, check out the elevation!! It was MEAN on the way home. My calves were cramping and Katie’s legs were on fire! We stopped in the middle of one of our runs to walk for minute & then made the minute of running up as we were ending. It was a really tough run, with a really big climb! This one hurt! I feel it more this morning.

I’m glad we went. It feels good to have made more progress & we had our second fastest pace!

We hope to run some tonight and then again monday. Our plan for next week will be a little bit different because we will be running a 5K on Saturday (Kohmen of the Ozark’s Race for the Cure).

I THINK it will look like this: Running: Sunday, Monday, Wednesday as normal. Then, Friday, do a short, up tempo, treadmill run. Hopefully this will give us a little rest on Friday, but it will keep our legs moving a little faster than normal to make Saturday seem easier.
