Still having nightmares about getting my 400 skirts done in time. Only 2 more weeks of insanity left!
I got to the gym around 6:30am. I really wanted to get some lifting in this morning even though I wouldn't have a lot of time
10x squats on smith machine
60 sec plank
10xabductor on pulley machine
10x adductor on pulley machine
2x 6 mile runs.
The first 6 mile seemed to take forever. It is that mental barrier of getting over the first half. I decided to take a GU today instead of jelly beans - jelly beans take too long to eat and sometimes feel heavy in my stomach. GU was much faster.
The second 6 miler didn't take as long, but I was getting tired (especially by mile 9). BUT my hip didn't hurt at all. Not one iota of discomfort!!!!! But my front shin did bug. One thing after another.
1:51:12 -9:28, 9:22, 9:23, 9:19, 9:22, 9:16, 9:30 (reset TM), 9:12, 9:13, 9:13, 9:07, 9:01
AP was 9:16. I thought that was really slow. So I went back through my training log to see previous 12ish mile runs from last year and what their AP was
9:27 - 12 mile
9:30 - 12 mile
9:15 - 13.33 mile
9:59 - 15 mile
9:45 - 11 mile
8:48 - 12 mile (near the end of my marathon training)
8:59 - 12 mile (last 12 miler before SGM)
After doing this research, I felt better about my pace. That is one positive about TM - it will keep you consistent.
Just as I finished, I saw my hubby's boss. I was a sweat BOMB (none of this glistening stuff....more like a sweaty pig). I was a bit embarrassed - I'm definitely not a "cute" girl at the gym! Oh well....what do you expect after 12 miles.
Lots of stretching and foam rolling (ITB was achy on the roller, but not during the run). Ice bath - but I don't think I filled the tub full enough (how full are you suppose to fill it???). It didn't even cover my knees. I was so cold before I got in the tub...brrrr......
Grocery shopping and sewing...fun....
