Super early start, Thursday

Postby Habs4ever » Thu May 07, 2015 6:02 am

May as well start the Thursday thread. It's 5:00am here and I've been awake for over 1.5 hours. I think it may be a long day.

I have been up since 2:30. I saw an amazing sunrise as I drove to work. My shoulder is still sore from swimming on Tuesday so today is going to be 2 hrs on the bike, after groceries and house stuff.

Morning!

Super nice morning here. I attempted my first tempo run in ages! I wasn't sure I could or even should, but it turned out decently.

1.6 K warmup
5K @ tempo pace = 5:08, 5:09,5:04,5:03,4:56 - so somewhere between 10K to half marathon pace. I was happy to be done!
1K jog
Stop at the park for some strength work! :D lunges, squats, box jumps, bench pushups, tricep dips, jumping jacks, step ups - so great stuff!
2.4K cool down for 10K total.

This felt awesome! Gotta keep up the strength work.

I got out for a 9.6k run at lunch to enjoy the sunny day! It means I have to work a bit late to make up for the long lunch, but it's worth it.

I'm working from home today (no night training - yay!) so I went out for a run just before lunch. I realized it's been TWO WEEKS since I last ran! :shock:

I had a bit of a false start on my run because when I was about 800m from home I started to feel tightness in my chest from allergy-induced asthma. Rather than continuing and then having to walk home due to not being able to breathe, I turned around, ran home, used my puffer, put it in my pocket, and headed back out. The second part of my run was AMAZING! It's such a gorgeous day out. I didn't really have a plan for the run, so I just kept going a little further until I decided it was time to turn around. In the end, I ran 7.1K in just under 44 minutes.

From a shirt seen (many times! on many charity runners!) during the London Marathon: "Asthma - with you every step of the way".

Glad you ended up having a good run after using the puffer.

Gave blood last night so I kept it easy today.

Just short of 5k jog/walk in 40 minutes. We were doing track, which was great as I wouldn't have been able to keep up with the gals otherwise.

I went to runpub but didn't run with the others because I wasn't feeling great. Walked Sammy for 5km instead and then joined for the pub part. :)

Needed to take a day off running, but didn't want to waste a beautiful night. Went out for a 5k walk.

Have been traveling for the last month - got a run in (on the treadmill) in Jamaica, ran in Calgary last week and Montreal this week. I was supposed to do the Sportinglife 10k here in Ottawa this weekend, but need some time at home to relax after being away so much.
