1:00 PM: 3.12-Mile Run – COMPLETED
I was able to slide out for a lunch run today, even though the entire office thought I was crazy. I ran the other day when it was 15-degrees out. Today was 18. Upon my return, I mentioned to my fellow employees that there were in fact three other runners out there.
I was happy with this run today. It started out pretty slow, but then each mile was faster. I love negative splits. I did an out-and-back and then headed over to Trader Joe’s for a quick pick-up.
I walked back to the office with two bags (one was a bit heavier). One thing I love about this weather is that I can leave my food in the trunk.
I picked up a few essentials. There’s some talk about another snow storm coming on Thursday. We just don’t know how much yet. It could be anywhere from 4-6 or 8-12 inches. I have a feeling this will mean we’re working on President’s Day. Oh well. Anyhow, I got back into the office in less than an hour, changed and got my lunch.
The office ordered at one of my least favorite restaurants, but today I picked out something pretty good. Oh the perks at my job: running, food shopping and free lunch at my desk.
In other news, I designed a training plan for my half marathon in May. I have two weeks of base training before actual training begins. I’m pretty excited about getting back out there. I mean, I know I’ve been running, but to actually have something to train for makes things more challenging.
Oh, and guess who turned 5-months today?
I love this kid.
Do you follow training plans? Do you make it up on your own?
When making a training plan, how many times a week do you run?
I am still waiting to hear whether we’re off on Monday… I have a feeling it will depend on whether it snows on Thursday and we’re off. Well, at least P is off. Now I don’t have to do drop off and pick up.
