On Friday, it was too cold and windy for my liking, so I skipped the bike ride. Yes, I know I'm a weather wimp. It wasn't a total loss. I did go to Zumba as planned. The music was great, the workout made me sweat, and my abs were a bit sore the next morning. Good stuff. I think I may go again, but I'm not sure my friend will join me. It should be fun once I learn the moves.
Saturday morning I sulked around the house feeling thinking that I really should go for a bike ride since I didn't go on Friday. But I just didn't want to. I don't know why, I just didn't. I decided to do what I really wanted to do instead and went to the gym for a swim. That made me happy.
Today the plan called for a 6-7 mile tempo run. To my delight, Husband asked if I wanted to run with him. I felt good and ran strong. Somehow I managed an overall pace of 10:46 for the 6.6 miles that we covered. My 10K split time was only ~45sec slower than my 10K PB. And this is from a training run, not a race. Unbelievable. I guess this training stuff is working.
At this very moment, I'm feeling ready for the half marathon on Saturday. I hope I feel like this on race day.
