Well, I decided to just hang out and take 'er easy (er) today. So, knowing I've got the nasty downhill, quad pounding Halloween Half on Saturday (if you will be there just look for the tall pink haired lady...that'll be me), I decided to practice some downhill miles.
After a lap of heel/toe walking, off to the TM - again.
First mile warm-up @8:27 1%
miles 2-5 @7:41 -3%
mile 6 @7:30 -3%
(yes, negative. All downhill, so the paces were fast, but it felt so dreamily easy!)
mile 7 @ 8:20 1% (last .15 at 7:53) uphill feels SO hard after 5 miles of easy downhill.
TT: 55:14; AP: 7:53 - perfect MP :)
So, only note to the run is that I did have to stop at 2.35 and run down to the nursery. They thought baby needed a change, but he wasn't dirty at all. Must've been a false alarm. He is after all, a boy! :) So, it was a little broken up, but running out to the car to get the diapers helped me jump right back in when I was ready to go again.
Afterward, I did the 60/60/60 planks (front/side/side) with 20 push-ups between sets 3X. Stretched and then did my own mini yoga class for the last 20 min until daycare pick up. I would've skipped it and just gone home, but I was already into my 2nd hour I'd have to pay for whether or not I used all the time...so of course I'm not going to waste my money! :)
