But it looks more like this:
I planned to run on Tuesday, but I had to travel that day so I ran Monday instead. I have a hard time running at "Marathon Pace". Not that I'm super fast, it's just that I have a hard time running a bit slower. I'm not sure what MY marathon pace is. So on Wednesday I ask my coworker Ernie, who is also a runner, to go for a run with me during lunch. He runs normally runs at a 9-10mile pace, so I figured that would be good for me. We did a 7.5 run which at times I felt like we were going really slow. I'm not complaining. I need to find a happy medium so this is a start for me.
Today I did a good 5 miles, rest tomorrow and I'm not sure if I'm doing the 8 miler on Saturday or on Sunday yet. Haven't figured out what to do for cross training yet. I have a bike, but it's too damn cold to ride outside. A friend of mine has a heavy bag which I'm trying to get off him cheap. I think I'll enjoy going a couple of rounds with it in the garage. I also have a jump rope I can use, but even though I want to think I'll look something like this using it:
I know I will look and feel more like this:
Hopefully be the end of marathon training I will master it.
I just found out that there will be a lot more traveling for work in the next couple of weeks\months. I will be in Danbury, CT (2 hrs away), and to NYC (3.5 hrs away), for days at a time. And a week trip to El Paso, TX sometime next month. I'm gonna have to get creative when it comes to my runs during these trips.
Have a good weekend everyone - Let's go Pats!!
