I was surprised at my time today, I believe this is a record for the 2012 year for me. Ran a four plus
That puts me under a 12 minute mile, but a long way more to beat my all time (all time meaning since June 2009) of 43:09.
The four plus and yesterday’s 1 lap puts me at 5 miles so far for the week. I need to get 15 more miles in 4 days though, because I am busy Saturday.
It is possible though, if I return to two a days. I am thinking of doing two miles on the treadmill in the morning, then a four plus in the afternoon. That is 12 miles in two days plus the 5 I already ran.
Then two on Thursday and Friday a piece. Still doing some sort of workout Saturday, but the bulk of my training is tomorrow and Wednesday.
Would like to note that I did walk 2 laps, but they were not runs. So my total distance today was over 6 miles.
I am bummed with my weight though, I think if I can bring it down to 243, I will totally rock during the Rock and Roll marathon. I still can reach it, if I am doing 20 miles a week, and 2000 calories a day, with an increase to 25 miles a week in mid May, the math says I can be at 243 before the Marathon.
Couple interesting notes
The night before RnR 2011 I was 255, the day of Seattle 2011 but before the run I was 265.
So as far as weight goes, I am actually ahead. Still want to be under 250 BEFORE RnR 2012
