3 mile run
The run went okay this morning. I signed up with Peak Training to help get me ready for my Half Marathon. I have a fitness assessment tomorrow evening, but since we won't have time to do my 3 mile run tomorrow night, I got to do it today. My instructions were to eat before (I hate eating before a run), and run the whole 3 miles at a comfortable pace, but no walking. I used to sportband instead of my ipod and nike+, which may not have been the best decision, but I made it through the whole thing. There were times in the run that I was thinking "on a normal day I would have walked here" if my legs were starting to get stiff. I kept going though. It's not my fastest 3 miles, but it is my fastest training run. Normally I walk/run my training days. Oh yeah, I even ate before I ran. A half a bagel with cream cheese and some milk, so I could get enough protein. My knee was feeling a little off for the last quarter mile, but the last half mile is at a decline. For some reason my knee does not like going down hills. I will need to figure something out for this since not all runs are completely flat. So, my time was 34'22. I did a .3 mile cool down and am feeling pretty decent. I think some yoga and pilates is in order to get my knees feeling 100%. Happy running!
