Thursday evening, I met up with the running group for speedwork. The plan was 1 mile warm-up, then 12x (1min FAST + 1 min WALK), then a cool-down (which I walked). I was quite pleased that most of my fast segments were at a pace south of 8 min/mi. Not all though, those last few were particularly challenging. Speedwork = SUCCESS.
This morning the plan was cycle to gym, work out with Trainer, cycle to home with maybe an extra loop. Woke up to drizzling rain. Bailed on plan to cycle anywhere. Cycling plan = FAIL.[Side note, why does the weather forcast say 30% chance of rain when it's raining right now and has been for the past few hours? By default doesn't that make it 100% chance of rain? I do not understand weather forcasts]
Drove to the gym instead and did lower body work with the Trainer. Then went upstairs for some serious stretching. Trainer appt = SUCCESS.
Tomorrow is supposed to be cloudy, no rain. I'm hoping that equates to good running weather for my long run. I wasn't being sarcastic when I said that 7 miles is a fun distance to run. I'm really looking forward to it!!
