cool weather training in august

So does my husband know me or what? Yes the pink asic kayano 15's I've been drooling over but didn't want to purchase until it was necessary to switch the shoes were my anniversary gift! I can't wait to take them for a spin!

The weekend running (16 miles + 5 miles) went well thanks to the extremely mild temps we are having. 60's in August!?!? I would have said you were lying if I hadn't been out there myself. Although I don't enjoy sweaters in August it's awesome for training. Definitely spoiled this weekend :)

This week I've had to do some more re-arrangement of the running schedule thanks to the work travel schedule. Old news I know. Monday I was not feeling any sort of speed; my legs were tired from the long weekend! Pftiz called for 10 miles with 5 x 1000 meters (to be done at my 5K pace which for me and this training is 7:55 - 8:05). Weeeellllllll... I kind of didn't convert meters to miles properly and ran the intervals a little long. After the 3rd interval I thought I had nearly reached my puke threshold and really considered stopping there. But I made it through all 5! And did them all between a 7:50 - 7:55 pace! Not sure how I did it but I did. The workout kicked my ass but felt amazing at the same time. Today I had big plans to run 12 miles before my flight. But thanks to sleeping in and my flight leaving earlier than I originally though I settled for 5 recovery miles. My left shin is really bothering me and I'm not feeling the treadmill in Birmingham so Weds is a cross-training day and back at it Thursday in Chicago.

Great anniversary gift!

Awesome job on the interval workout, especially when you weren't really feeling it to start.

Hi Jamie

Sweet new kicks! I have to say that color will look much better on you than it would on me... HaHa.

I have been following you for quite some time and it seems like you are getting faster and faster.
7:50 pace is no joke.

I was so time challenged doing those floors that it actually made me think of you. I am usually so fortunate to have a set schedule (and an understanding wife:)) that I can always find time to run. But after 3 days of floor consuming slavery I am free again!

Take care Jamie and take care of that shin.

Sounds like you got some awesome runs in! Have a good trip and yeah, Chicago in the 60s, wild.

Jeri said...

Awww what a sweet hubby. Running gifts are the BEST. You're really rocking your training!!! Awesome paces on the LT run. Also digging the cool cool temps for the running, but cursing it when I can't go to the waterpark on the weekends. Haha. Can never be 100% happy. :p
