Running Journal 4/25/2010 (5 miles)

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Today's stats:

Cloudy 59 degrees w/ wind N 8 G 18 MPH
81% humidity

Time 58:37 (4/1 intervals)
11:42 av pace
5.1 av MPH
498 cals burned

152 av bpm HR
176 max bpm HR

M1: 11:42 (145 bpm)
M2: 11:27 (154 bpm)
M3: 11:35 (155 bpm)
M4: 12:16 (151 bpm)
M5: 11:31 (151 bpm)

My legs felt alot better today with a two day rest and this will indeed be a cutback week. I ventured to a new area to break up the monotony of my regular running. The humidity felt like it was about 1000% as my poor hair was going phhht and I felt clammy even with my Brooks dri-fit fabric. Ack.

This week will be 5 miles today, about 5-ish miles Tuesday and perhaps about 6 miles on Friday for a total of about 16 miles which will be about perfect for a cutback.

This week we are getting our bikes down, tires inflated to proper levels and see if we remember how to ride them. That will be great for cross training and another form of cardio. I am pretty excited about that.

Until Tuesday evening...

    Sounds like a great, but sticky run!

    And by the way, I LOVE the rose bouquet as your background!

    It was really sticky today. I ran in shorts and a long-sleeve shirt with the sleeves rolled up. They were calling for rain, and I was afraid of being frozen if it started. Was one of those days were a little rain can take it in the other direction in a hurry.

    Sounds like a great run in spite of the humidity!! My hair goes phhhht even if it's like 1% humidity so I can relate ;)

    Biking is great cross training! I don't own a bike (tsk,tsk I know!!) but love to use the Expresso bike at the gym. Maybe one of these days I'll pull together some $$ for a bike!

    Sounds like you had a great run today. Mine wasn't terrible, but it's tough to pull back before a race.
