I woke up this morning and was not in the least bit surprised to discover sore, stiff legs. Between the 5K, lifting weights, and walking 2.0 miles, I figured soreness was inevitable. Luckily, this week is a taper week, and I "only" had to do 5.0 miles. 🙂
I had toast and Barney Butter before I left:
My run took me along the intracoastal waterway and through lovely, tree-line streets. It was a very pleasant run even though it started to run in the last mile and I got SOAKED!
I’m getting very excited for my next race — the Miracle Miles 15K. This is my third year running Miracle Miles and, unlike this weekend’s 5K, I actually REALLY care about my time for the 15K. I want to break my personal record for a 15K (1 hour, 23 minutes, 30 seconds) so bad! The race is in TWO WEEKS!
To break my PR, I need to run the race under 9:00-minute/miles. So, I thought it would be a good idea to try to pace under 9:30 for this training run. I managed to squeeze out an average time of 9:19, despite wicked sore legs!
- Duration: 46:32
- Distance: 5.0 miles
- Average Pace: 9:19
- Mile 1: 9:43
- Mile 2: 9:17
- Mile 3: 8:55
- Mile 4: 9:14
- Mile 5: 9:23
After my run, I stretched, iced my knees, and ate breakfast:
I had cereal with almonds, flax, and raspberries:
Then, the Husband and I packed up our cars and drove back to Orlando. After we got back, I made lunch:
I made Cheesy Broccoli Frittata, but I added more broccoli this time. I had about 1/3 of the pie:
And a half a Bialy muffin on the side (with some buttah):
I have SO much work to do today! Gotta go be productive. 🙂
Have a nice Sunday!
Good job on the run, you are seriously motivating me!
I'm not sure if you've posted this before but would you mind sharing some knee icing tips?
