Holiday 4M

Ran the Holiday 4M this Saturday - and it was cold! Had a pretty good race - ran it in 35:28 for a pace of 8:52. Saw Ramon and a bunch of the coaches and TNTer's which is always nice!

Did some good cross training on Sunday and Monday, felt good. Can't go to Niketown tonight b/c I have a work thing today. But brought my stuff to go to the gym and do my own speed workout afterwards.

Disney is in less then 3 weeks!!!! I am so excited!

Its cold outside...

The weather has definitely turned cooler...which is making running slightly more difficult. Went running Tuesday night at Niketown - had a great run. Did a 3.5 mile tempo run and felt good with a comfortable pace of 8:50. Excellent.

Running the NYRR Holiday 4M tomorrow morning. Should be another cold one. Still taking it kinda easy tomorrow. Don't want to over push my body post Chicago/Philly. Last race of the year! Then a new racing season starts in January - already looking forward to it!

Last week

Last week I was not very good about my training, despite my best intentions. Lots of Holiday parties for work and it messed my schedule up. Went to the gym last night and had a solid cross-training workout: ellipitcal, arms, legs and stretching. Going to NIKEtown tonight to go running with the group.

Finally got around to uploading a picture of Ginny (my lovely tri bike). Isn't she pretty?

Here are some pictures of my Philadelphia Medal and since I never posted a picture of my Chicago medal, here's that too.

Weekend run

Did the NYRR Hot Chocolate 15k this weekend (that's 9.3 miles) as my training run. As this was my first long run since Philadelphia, I decided to take it nice and slow. Ran at a 9:55 pace - stopped for water and walked (I really took it slow). Took my legs a long time to loosen up, apparently they were resisting this whole running thing (I don't know why, its not like I ran 2 marathons within 6 weeks or anything - haha). Also, I forgot to bring a gu with me, so I didn't take anything during it, which never helps. Anyways, getting back into a solid training schedule this week with some cross training tonight.

Also, just registered for the NJ Half Marathon - figured if I can do 2 laps of the thing, one will be a piece of cake!
