On Monday I jogged down my trail for ~1/2 mile.. stopped and walked home. My energy was very low and my mind wasn't working correctly.
Today- wu) 2 miles easy jogging in 13:00. I knew this was going to sting.. my second mile was in 6:10 with my HR at 128...
Then: 10 miles in 58:50.. First mile was in 5:12/ second mile was in 5:11.. HR was still below 160.
I had a confrontation with a dog- then after I got up off the ground- the dog owner. I didn't stop my watch during the argument with the dog owner but it was over a minute. Afterwards I was fuming and couldn't keep my HR down..
I averaged HR 163 and 5:53 pace (with the ~1 minute stop) on rolling trails. Over-all it was one of my better runs!
On a side note: I have been wearing my Newton shoes on nearly every run this past couple of weeks I have to say that I love them. I have worked hard at changing my running mechanics and the Newtons really do compliment the change. John who gave me the shoes I'm running in now is sending me another pair of the racers (pictured below) and I hope to get them in time to race in them this weekend at the Horsetooth 1/2 Marathon. Thank you John! I'll get you back this summer when you come out to run with me for a week..
