For the first one they asked a few people to share short workouts for runs that are about 50-60 min.
I sent one and it was picked for their list of 10 short challenging runs.
You can find all 10 here: http://anothermotherrunner.com/10-short-challenging-runs/ and open the link to the word doc.
Mine is about pacing and it is the Rain Man style workout!
Pace, Rain-Man Style (4-6 miles)“This run helps me learn to focus and learn pacing.”
—Caroline Eakle (admits to being “really, really bad” at pacing)
·Mile 1: warm up
·Mile 2: run 100 steps at half-marathon pace, 100 steps at 10K pace, alternate until end of mile.
·Mile 3: run 100 steps at half-marathon pace, 100 steps at 5K pace, alternate until end of mile.
·If you want: repeat Mile 2 or Mile 2 + 3
·Last mile: cool down
Check the other 9, maybe something will "speak" to you!
Finally the heat is gone!!! It even rained today! It started to rain when I was getting ready to start my run. Wasn't too sure how far I would go. Since I gave up on Big Sur, I am a little lost. I also don't know if I will be running a race this weekend....I am thinking yes as of now...but not 100% sure.
So I decided to do 5 miles and a minute after I turned around to go back to the school someone came running behind me and it was this lady!! Sandy, who is so nice and also so much faster than me! She ran with me to the school and it went by so fast! It was great to run with her, did not even notice the rain. She was nice and went at my slower pace. What a great surprise this was to run with Sandy this morning!!!
Warning...the last part is about my kids...
I include my boys here and especially when they do something good, great and beyond that because maybe one day they will read all this to know more about dear old mom and I do want them to know how proud I am of them.
Yesterday was Award Day for the 1st trimester and it was a good day for my kids.
They both received awards. They both got the highest reading award in their grade. Jonathan was the only student to receive that one in his grade. The Principal was the one giving the awards and and she thought it was a typo...she had to asked the teacher if this was correct!!!
