Cross Training day in the Gym. I didn't want to lift weights today so I did an extra 30 minutes of aerobic (bike and elliptical).

Bike 5 Miles @ 20 mph, Elliptical 2 Miles @ 8:15 , Bike 5 Miles @ 20 mph, Elliptical 2 Miles @ 8:15, Bike 5 Miles @ 20 mph, Elliptical 1 Mile @ 8:15.

Total: 15 Miles Bike & 5 Miles Elliptical (No breaks in between)

I was still a little tired yesterday from my 20 miler on Saturday but looking back I think my main mistake was going out too fast at the start allowing my HR to jump too high. I also lost/dropped my two Gu packs during the run and had nothing but my water and Gatorade. I probably needed an energy boost near the end.

Matthew 28:18

 

 18 Jesus came and said to them, “All power has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

Track Repeats today on the RLRF program. I'm beginning to really like the track workouts!

Got some new shoes and wore them the first time today. They are Saucony Kinvara 2. My thinking is to use them in my marathon races but keep training in my Saucony Ride 4. The K2 does not have near the support the R4 has but my feet seem to be fine after this run. I also have a pair of Brooks Racer ST 5. So now I have R4 @ 11 oz,  K2 @ 8 oz and BR5 @ 6 oz. I should be covered for anything now :-) ...Unless I want to go shoeless like some believe is the best...?

Today was another good day of running. As you can see I exceeded the RLRF program a little but I don't think it was too much. I felt good throughout the run so decided to pick up the pace on the last couple of miles. It felt good to finishe the 10 tempo miles,  slow down for a few seconds, and then feel like I still had a lot of spring in my stride. I won't be able to run for the next couple of days so I should be rested up for my long run on Sunday. I was only able to cross-train one day this week,  and I didn't like that!

Hope you all have a good weekend...Expecially SlowJoe!!!

I guess you also know that we've lost  JG on the Blog for a while. I'll really miss his friendship and his helpful coaching advice!

Target:
Tempo Run - 1 Mile Easy, 10 Miles @ 7:26. This was another good run.

 I felt good throughout the run so I picked up the pace on the last couple of miles. The paces vary a little due to the rolling hills.

 Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
