20 miles to go

30 May

So to stay on track and hit my goal of 1000 miles in 2012, I will need to go 20 miles in the next two days.  That is a lot of miles.  I really must have been slacking off this month.  So tonight D and I will be off for a long bike ride.  This will be good since I was going to take a rest day from running tonight.

Tomorrow baby J and I will be hiking with our moms group so that will help with about a mile.  LOL  But hey it counts.  Tomorrow I will also try to get in a 4 mile run and that will keep me on track for my 500 miles of running this year.  This will count for my long run this week since I will be at a wedding on Saturday.  This will be my first 4 mile run.  I hope it goes well.

Last night I ran intervals.  I had to do this on the treadmill since it was pouring outside.  But hey – it is what it is.  I started out at a 5.3 and then upped it to 6.0 and then back down.  I alternated this for 3.2 miles.  The last two times I upped it was really challenging for me.  I would have been comfortable just staying at my 5.3 for the rest of the run but that was not the purpose of my run so I kept pushing on.  I did 3.2 miles in 35:00  I am hoping to start building up strength and stamina.  I have been reading about intervals, repeats, and tempo runs.  There are so many different things you can do to help get your running up to par.  I find myself running out of days in the week to keep up with all this.  I might have to adjust my schedule a bit.  We will see.

Do you do interval training, repeats or tempo runs?  What does your schedule look like?

    Come on slacker…hehe. You probably just forgot to log some miles in Chicago…the alcohol made you forget. At least alcohol usually takes the blame for me.

      I think your right. I must have had about 20 miles walking up and down the pier and the museum and then the 5 achres in my uncle back yard. LOL Unfortuntely I dont count that. But that does give me some cushion. I was just a total slacker this month. 🙂 I defiantely blame the alcohol.
