So I cannot believe that the summer is going by so quickly! I just noticed today that:
1. I've been working at my job for a month already!
2. I am only 3 months from my half marathon.
Whoa! I haven't signed up for the race yet, but I think I will with my next paycheck. I've been doing my yoga and lifting, and I've been running a few days a week as well. It's looking like my natural pace is 9 min per mile on good days and 9.5 min per mile on slow days. I'll take it! I still haven't splurged on my HRM/GPS combo but I might in the coming weeks. I'm turning 30 on July 28, so perhaps that will be my gift to myself!!!
I hope everyone else is having a wonderful healthy day! My workout today was a 10 minute jog for a warmup (6 mph), then one set of my circuit. I then did 10 min of running at 6.5 mph, then another set in my circuit. I finished up with 10 min on the treadmill at 6.5 - 7.0 mph, and of course one final run through the circuit. It felt great!!!
Stay cool if you're in the crazy heat in the northeast! There is no reason to go out running in this weather! Tomorrow I plan to do a Shaun T's INSANITY workout in the morning before work.
Be happy and be healthy!
