Good running week

I only ran 2 days this week, but put in quite a few miles. All told just over 12 miles.

Tuesday my son and I ran for 1.5 miles at a pace of 12:01 per mile. Then I followed that up with a 3.7 mile run on my own at a 10:49 pace. I did some great stretching after that run. I have been working on some serious hip and leg stretches. After getting all nice and warm after the runs, I worked out quite a bit of soreness that had been building up over the last week.

I did not get a chance to run on Thursday, which is a normal running day.

Today we went for a 2.1 mile run at a pace of 12:13 per mile. It was long run day for me, but I was busy trying to get my main website back up and running after being hacked this week. So I compromised by having a shorter run at a faster pace. I started the second run after a 20 minute break from the first run. I ran 5.1 miles at 9:44 pace. That is a great pace for me for that distance. I really did not feel like I was working that hard. The 2 mile warm up was a help. So though it was not an 8 mile long run, it was still a nice 7 mile day.

  1. Isn’t it funny that we are both in much better shape than we were in college? It seems like we are the exception to the rule. It took a while to get here, but I don’t want to go back to where I was.

    Keep up the good work.
