While running yesterday morning, I realized that what I was wearing was what I wore for a race in 2014. Here’s the race picture!
That’s the very same Nike ear warmer plus lululemon half zip with cuffins.
Both are still in excellent condition to the point where you would think they were new for this season.
That 10K was actually my fastest 10K race to date. Here’s the recap if you are interested.
Oh hey, speaking of races, this past weekend was the anniversary of two big race weekends for me.
First, my very first half marathon in 2012, the Hershey Park Half Marathon. I can’t believe it’s been eight years! And, it’s been six years since I ran the Runner’s Work Hat Trick. The hat trick included running a 5K followed by a 10K, with a Half Marathon the next day at the Runner’s World Half & Festival.
Time really does fly, doesn’t it?
Okay, time to move on to my workouts from last week!
Monday – 45 Min Barre
Rainy morning meant an indoor workout for me. I can run in the rain but not heavy rain.
Tuesday – 45 Min Cardio Mix/Short Walk
Another rainy morning (ugh!). It was too heavy for me to run in so I chose this Cardio Mixx workout because I was in the mood to get my heart rate up. I did manage to get outside to walk a little bit after this workout. It wasn’t raining as hard when I finished the cardio workout and I really wanted some air before starting my workday.
Wednesday – 5 Miles
Finally, I can get outside in the sun.
Intervals today! I made it up as I went along:
- Mile 1: Warm-up
- Mile 2: .25 hard/.25 easy/.50 hard
- Mile 3: .25 easy/.75 easy
- Mile 4: .alternating .10 hard/.10 easy
- Mile 5: full mile effort
Thursday – 5 Miles
Today’s run turned into a progression run without even trying.
Friday – 45 Min Pure Barre
Another good Pure Barre workout is available on youtube. I’ve done this Pure Barre workout before (when I had Pure Barre On Demand) I always like the workouts with this instructor, Kaitlyn.
Saturday – 7 Miles
This run started with me on the phone for the first few miles and never really picked up the effort. 7 miles went by quickly at an easy pace.
Sunday – 5.33 Miles (to be exact)
This was mostly an easy run with some effort in the mix. It’s definitely feeling like fall out there right now.
