What an Oven?!
No really I felt like I was in an oven. I'm glad I was not because I had Lil Miss Bean with me but it was extremely hot while I was running. The weird thing is that I used to LOVE running in the heat but ever since pregnancy and childbirth I've been a little warmer than I used to...could it be the extra 19 LB's that my body is carrying...yes, I think so!! (positive note: I lost a pound since I started blogging :)
My plan for today was 3 miles with 2 800 meter repeats at 9 min mile pace.
I completed it, my repeats were not exactly 9 min mile but suffice to say the 85 degree weather is to blame.
1st mile was 12:00 min mile warm up. Which really wasn't bad considering the heat and the fact I didn't feel like running today...but who listens to their feelings anyway?
Repeat 1: Time:4:46 (.51 of a mile), pace of a 9:16 min mile
Light jog of 6:12 for .51 of a mile
Repeat 2: Time: 4:38 (.51 of a mile) pace of 9:06 min mile
Light jog for about a 1/4 mile and then Lil Bean starting fussing quite a bit so I started running
Last 1/2 mile was 5:33
Final Time: 32:29 for 3 miles...Avg Pace Per mile 10:49
I don't know about anyone else but I sure feel like Wonder Woman when I do speed work with the stroller...I feel Bad-A...might just be me...but I thought I'd share.
What makes you feel like a super hero??
