Friday Run: 4.25 miles, 40 minutes
Sunday Run: 5 miles, 50 minutes
So my Friday run went really well. It was a treadmill run again because it is unfortunately all I could fit into my schedule. This time I was actually able to pick up pace on the TM. Hit "7.0" for a good amount of that run which of course I didn't look at what pace that was equilavent to and it's impossible to figure out with the warm up and everything. But it was faster than a normal treadmill run I know that.
Sunday, I was at my parents house. I was scheduled for a tempo run but it was more of a hill run than a tempo run. My mom told me about this great 5 mile route that she used to walk so I set out to run it. Well, she hasn't walked this in quite some time and couldn't remember all the hills. So yea...hill training #2. I may have to move that tempo run to another day because it appears that I am always somewhere that has tons of hills when I go to run it. Hills make it pretty tough to get any kind of decent speed in.
On a side note, ended up burnt this weekend. I was taking full advantage of my parents water hose and wet/dry vac and cleaning my car. Ended up with a very crisp red back. And of course I was still wearing my running top from that morning so I have funny lines (the bra top running tops that have a sort of sports bra lineage when burnt). That and I guess my old Spanish teacher now lives behind my parents. After I got out of the shower, my mom was like "Rachel come meet the neighbors, its your spanish teacher from high school." So that was cool.
Hope all of you had a fantastic weekend!
