Felt like a swimmer today. I guess it was good to flail around in the pool on Wednesday so I could figure out what I'm doing. 10 x 100 today, with 1:00 min. rest between. I worked on breathing again, switching each 100, starting with both sides, then right, then left, etc. I definitely was gliding through the water more when I breathed right side only. Progress... #halfironmantraining
Happy Sunday! My morning runs consisted of a faster 5K at a 7:14/mi pace and then I was able to get a single mile in with Colleen and Jordan out at Pocahontas State Park.
The temperature was perfect for the run and the misty rain only helped me enjoy it more. I felt like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz for the first mile, but still managed a decent 7:35/mi pace. Maybe the mist acted as an oil for the Tin Man’s joints, because my body loosened up like the Scarecrow and I was able to speed up for the 2nd mile at 7:24/mi pace. The final mile I channeled the Lion and roared to a solid 6:44/mi pace. For the final tenth of the 5K, I was like Dorothy and was channeling my best "There's no place like home". I clicked my heels 👠 and voila I was done with that run.
My 2nd run was with Jordan and Colleen. I just did a short half mile out and half mile back. I wanted to get some pictures of their trail run and also did not want to leave Kristina (Jordan's wife) alone with all 4 of the kiddos. It is great to have awesome friends who like to run, explore, and tag team the kid watching duties to allow all of us to adventure!
Ready to take on the challenge at tomorrow’s @joburg10k race!! 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♀️ Not sure what these legs will be able to do but one thing I am sure of - it’s going to require hard work conquering the @joburg.co.za hills😅 I am hoping to learn some short distance speed lessons from the speedsters😆🌈 #FNBRunYourCity#ready#seeyouthere

Искренне считаю всех, кто бежал сегодня марафон супергероями. Эти ребята похоже ещё и разогнали тучи над Москвой💙
Jeudi je fais un footing avec un collègue de boulot me disant qu'aujourd'hui il fait le 10km d'Avignon et me propose de venir le faire. N'ayant pas fait de prepa spécifique sur cette distance mais me sentant en forme en rentrant de belles et grosses séances depuis la reprise après l'ironman 70.3 de Vichy je me dis de pourquoi pas tenter de battre mon record de 36'47 effectué l'année dernière.
Record battu en 36'22 (soit 16,5 km/h), c'était dur c'était du Fight mais que c'est bon quand tu franchis la ligne.
Une grosse pensée pour Jaja qui nous manque (j'ai couru avec son maillot) 😇
