Time for the weekend running recap :D
4 1/2 miles in 41ish minutes - 9:05min/mile
*It went really well. I pushed comfortably hard and ended up making this an accidental tempo run but that's okay. I'm pretty happy with it :D. Felt great. One of my fastest training runs ever and felt good.
Could definitely FEEL shins but they didn't hurt (if that makes sense)
3 miles in 28ish minutes - 9:23min/mile
*Okay my shins were already hurting this morning from yesterday's run so I meant to do a nice slow recovery jog. So... I picked a friend of mine who hasn't run in months (I conveniently forgot she was a cross country track star in high school). Anyway we take off and I'm constantly telling her to slow down and a couple times she just went ahead and then had to double back when she realized she had left me in the dust lol. Needless to say I did not get my 10-11 minute/mile recovery jog I wanted but I did discover a friend who will be great for a 5k race or something lol. Oh... and I'm in a lot of pain now. Note to self: do a running background inquiry BEFORE choosing a recovery running buddy!!
*my super long slowly building marathon training starts next week. I'm stoked
*my midweek runs are now switching from required miles run to required mintutes run. I'm pretty excited for this too.
*12k on Saturday (7.4 miles). I'm stoked, if not a bit nervous
