Yes, this morning I was chased by a wild goose. Well, maybe lunged at is a more accurate description, but it was enough to make me wonder how long an angry goose could sustain a 10 minute mile.
Edited to add: Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. Thanks for helping keep the world from descending into chaos!
Without further ado:
U- Rest and yoga
M- Strength training
T- 6mi with 5x hill repeats
W- 6mi easy
R- 7.2mi with 40 min tempo at 8:22 min/mile pace, yoga
F- Strength training
S- 14 mi in 2:15 (9:39 min/mile pace)
Bringing the totals to:
Running: 33.2 mi
Strength training: 2x
Consulting the great oracle that is the McMillan Pace Calculator with my 1/2 marathon goal pace plugged in,
My long run pace was right on, but my tempo run pace was a little slow. Part of this was because I got a monster side stitch about 1/2 way through. Does anyone know what a steady-state run is?
Yesterday was pretty chill other than running. I read, napped, and cleaned. Today has been much more productive. I have finished two loads of laundry, run 5 miles, eaten breakfast, and put together this lovely blog post for you and it's only 8:38am.
We are planning to do a bunch of work in the garden this morning so stay tuned for tomorrow's post on things natural
