So Pittsburgh Public schools through me for a loop by cancelling at the last minute today. Oh well, I kind of thought it might happen so I had already mentally prepared to have to do my run on the treadmill today. No big deal, really.
I did 10 minutes easy, 25 minutes between 5-10K pace, and then 10 minutes easy again. It went pretty well if you ignore the treadmill boredom. I'm ok on the treadmill for about 3 miles and then I start clock watching, sighing, and trying to focus on anything but the timer. Nothing ever really helps, so I just have to get through it.
Mile 1 - 9:51
Mile 2 - 8:31
Mile 3 - 8:14
Mile 4 - 8:15
Mile 5 - 9:08
Overall I ran 5.12 miles in 45:16. Average pace: 8:50. Like I said, it went well. Thankfully, the gym was dead, so I even had the space (gasp!) to do my little stretching routine when I was done.
I did the WOW again. I'm starting to get used to the jumps. I'll probably start to like them just as we switch to a different WOW that doesn't include them. haha
My #plankaday today was a set of side planks, which are my very weakest plank. That's ok. Getting better all the time is what matters, right? I held them for about 1:45 on each side.
