Yesterday, I went to the gym and I stepped on the treadmill ready to do 30 minutes of running. I was sure that this was going to be hard, since I haven't done any type of running in awhile. I am going to try and stick to the Half Marathon schedule that I followed last year (I will post a copy of this later). Surprisingly, the running went beautifully, I wasn't exhausted, yet I felt like I worked hard. I had a steady pace and only slowed down to a fast walk mid run to drink some water. I ended up doing a little over 3K. At the end of the run I felt really good. I am confident that I will do well in my 5K race on Sunday (my fastest recorded 5K time is 33:04, let me see how close I can come to that on Sunday). Granted, I was on a treadmill and that is always easier than running outside, but I am going to try and get a run in after work today because the weather is a magnificent 2C.
I do not think that I am going to sign up with the Running Room to train for this Half. I looked at my schedule for the next few months and I am just going to miss too many dates. I think that I am going to go to the Wed. and Sun. for the free runs when I can (if you are in Canada and you have a Running Room in your area, you can run with them on Wednesdays, usually at 6 or 6:30 pm and Sundays at 8:30 am FOR FREE!)
Last year at this time, I was getting ready to go here, here and here. Awww man, I wish I was there now.
Hope that you are having a great week!
