warmup 9:29, 8:42
6 miles at 8:30 (goal): 8:26, 8:40(very hilly), 8:30, 8:58 (running over the bridge always kills me), 8:32
cooldown: 9:06, 9:01, 8:53
Average pace was 8:49 which was the same as last week's run and a little slower than 2 weeks ago. While my goal pace for this 1/2 marathon coming up in my mind is 8:30, I was thinking today that I'm probably looking at around 8:40's. My PR is 1:53 and 1:53:50 is an 8:42 pace. Kind of a bummer.. maybe I'll run faster at the race though than in training runs. We'll have to see. I reached 33 miles this week, highest weekly mileage in a LONGGGGG time.
So here is Abby's bike:
I haven't been out for a real ride yet, but did go around my complex a couple of times. I'm kind of afraid to go on the roads, and to get it in the car requires me to take out a carseat (kind of a pain). I was training to put it on the trainer and I don't know how with this lever in silver pictured. Anyone want to help me out with that? In addition, I have questions. For running, they tell you to dress like it's 20 degrees warmer. For biking, is it the opposite? I was FREEZING with the wind blowing at me! I know I would have eventually warmed up, but what's the temperature rule for biking? Also, I think I have about 3-4 weeks till the pool swim triathlon - will adding in one spin class a week be sufficient do you think (or one outdoor ride if I can swing it) to get me through 10 hilly miles on the course?
I'm thinking of cutting back on one swim day and adding a bike there.
