Mon: 3 mi easy run
Tues: Yoga Power Yoga 4 podcast (40 min)
Wed: 3 mi easy run
Thurs: 2 mi intervals Eh, didn't really do intervals, just did the 2 miles at a fast speed. Having a running watch would probably make intervals and speed work easier.
Sat: 8 mi easy
My friend Jen joined me for the first part of my run on Saturday. Another bonus to having a running partner is that it encourages me to get up and hit the road earlier than I normally would. Jen had to be at work at 8:30 so she needed to meet at 6:30. It felt great to be done with my run by 8:00 before the trail got busy! My legs felt strong through my whole run and the cooler temps made a huge difference. I finished in exactly 1.5 hours, so that put me at about an 11:15 pace. Not bad! I treated myself to a Starbucks latte since it wasn't unbearably hot. Yay fall!
This week's plans:

I have decided that instead of the half marathon I was planning on for the first weekend in November, I am going to do a new race at the end of October instead. I think this will work better for me because it will give me an extra couple of weeks to get ready for the White Rock half marathon.
Hope everyone has a happy and healthy week!
