Week 8 is done! And what a workout. I feel fantastic after my run, despite only getting about 4 1/2 hours of sleep last night. I should sleep well tonight, probably even if I end up taking a nap before heading to my in-laws' house.
My wife bought an iTouch recently, and started using the MyFitnessPal app (though in her case it's to make sure she's eating enough of the right things because she's pregnant). You can use their services at MyFitnessPal.com if you don't have a device capable of using the app. I'm enjoying the calorie-tracking aspect of the site. I'm also being forced to take stock of my food choices, which is probably helping me overall.
Anyway, my run today:
0.00-5.00 - 3.6 mph
5.00-23.00 - 4.9 mph
23.00-28.00 - 5.0 mph
28.00-31.00 - 5.5 mph
31.00-32.00 - 6.0 mph
32.00-33.00 - 7.0 mph
33.00-38.00 - 3.6 mph
I hit a distance of 2.97 miles for a pace of 12:47. Things are coming together!
Next week, all three of my runs are 30 minutes, and I'm looking forward to seeing how I will do.
Have you gotten some exercise this weekend?
