I finally took a minute to get my credit card out in order to register online for my next half marathon (am I the only one who finds taking the credit card out of their purse to make an online purchase an annoying task?!)
Saturday October 3rd, The Great South Bay Run, sponsored by Entenmann’s (yes, the picture of the Entenmann’s chocolate donuts helped me to make my decision).
I love that this race is on a Saturday!
Okay, so the “plan” between now and then is as follows:
Get a new pair of Adidas Energy Boosts. My long run yesterday confirmed my current pair is finished. Time to start breaking in a new pair.
Work on the whole don’t start out to fast so that you can finish strong. I have the tendency to start out too fast and then burn out when it comes to races. I do not want that to happen with this race!
Focus a bit on my race pace because I really want to break my PR. I am looking to finish under 1:45 which I don’t think is out of reach for me at all.
October will be here before we know it. Isn’t that crazy?!
Monday – Pure Barre Pure Results & 30 Minutes Elliptical
If you missed my review of the new Pure Barre Pure Results, click here! I love it, even if it is kind of long (about 65 minutes).
Tuesday- 8 Treadmill Miles!
I knew I would be running indoors today because the forecast was calling for heavy rain.
I wore my lululemon rain jacket to run to/from the gym to keep from getting wet. I did not wear it while running on the treadmill.
I really didn’t mind that I had to run indoors— I have learned to like the treadmill and really enjoyed this run.
I don’t know what my average pace was but I loosely followed this treadmill workout which incorporates progression miles.
Wednesday- Pure Barre Mile High DVD & 5 Easy Miles
Thursday- 10 Miles (8:11 avg pace)
If you are looking to run some wonderful miles with a bunch at your race pace, eat a loaf of bread as your dinner the night before your run.
Great run, I did not want it to end which is why I ran 10 miles rather than my typical 8 miles.
Friday – Pure Barre Studio Series DVD & 5 Easy Miles
Saturday- 15 Miles (9:03 pace)
This run was a little tough because I felt the burn out of my favorite sneakers the entire time. I contemplated going home to switch them but didn’t bother. Instead, I focused on other things to get me through the run, like my favorite post-run breakfast followed by getting back into bed.
Sunday- Not really sure yet.
I don’t really know what’s on tap for this morning other than playing around with this jump rope.
We will need to discuss jump roping once I give this new one a fair try!Registered for my next half & workout recap #halfmarathon #running #greatsouthbay #workouts… Click To Tweet

Do you like to jump rope?
