This past weekend also marked the first race in the Triple Crown series. We will do a series of 3 races before the big Half Marathon. The first race was a 5k (3.1 miles). I ran the race last year, and G did too, so our goal for this year was just to do better than last year. My time for the 2009 race was 31:12 (did I ever say I wasn't a fast runner?). So this year, I just wanted to break 30 minutes.. and HOT DAMN! I DID!! :) I am so proud of myself. I ended up finishing in 29:02. A whole 2 minutes faster than last year and under a 10 minutes mile, so I was very pleased. G even did better by 2 minutes than last year! So now, we are gearing up for the next race in 2 weeks which is a 10k (6.2 miles). We have already run a 9 miler and this saturday we will run 10, so hopefully the 10k comes easy.
Here is how the rest of the week panned out:
Monday: 4 Miles and Cardio X
Tuesday: 3 Miles (was supposed to do Yoga X today to completely finish out my Phase 1, but I really dont like the yoga dvd, so I ended up skipping it all together.. oops!)
Wednesday: 5 Miles
Thursday: 3 Miles and Core Synergistics
Friday: nada (was supposed to do Cardio X, but just needed a day off)
Sunday: Cardio X
I am about 1 day behind on the P90X schedule, so I will have to do 5 miles AND Chest, Shoulders & Triceps/Ab Ripper tonight.. not really looking forward to it.
Oh, I have failed to mention that the weather has been much better lately and we have been able to do all of our runs outside! (Tuesday I got my hair cut, so I had to do it inside but that it just because I don't particularly like running in the dark). Running outside is SOO much better for me and the Dog likes it too!
