Tonite my 2 boys had their swim lessons, so I decided to Run to Swim again.
I made sure to leave early enough, so I would be waiting for them, when they arrived.
With my marathon training starting in a few weeks, I have started to add mileage to my runs.
I have this run up to 5.8 miles, and during my training, I'll have to get this Tuesday run over 6 miles. It shouldn't be a problem to add. I'll just add a bit at the start.
I felt really good running tonite. It was nice to not have to deal with the humidity!
According to all the weather reports, it'll be back on Thursday.
I made sure to eat an earlier dinner, and drank plenty of water during the day. I felt like I had the bladder of a 80yr old, with how much I went this afternoon.
Well, I ran the 5.8 miles in 48:56 (8:27/mile). It was a comfortable pace. I seem to feel it in the legs, but my wind is not a problem.
What I need to do, is get better at stretching before a run. I am bad, no make it terrible at that. It's usually, throw on the shoes, stretch the hamstrings out a bit, and take off. That is something I will have to improve on, or I'll probably end up hurting myself.
