Plan for today was 4 mile recovery run, run at 10:00min pace; +/- 10secs, meaning 9:55-10:05.
Great day for a run. Just beautiful out there. Blue skies/sunny, temp said 63F. Ran with hubby this time around my usual pond run. Was nice having someone to talk to & reinforce the conversational pace:)!
4miles in 40:19 (avg pace 10:04/min)
According to my Garmin301 splits were:
M4 - 10:05
Legs felt really good. In the past, after a hard workout (and I would consider running yesterdays 10K time trial as hard, I would have taken at least 1 day if not 2 days off after because of being sore), not today, felt great and really enjoyed the recovery run:)
Followed workout immediatley with Core6 workout
1-Min Planks 2sets
Bicycles 2sets 25
Oblique crunches 2sets of 25
Crunches 1 set of 25
Hip Extensions 1 set of 25
Pushups 1 set of 20
WOOHOO!! Finally did Obliques. Since hubby was around I asked him to show me how to do them, and I did it. Yeah, now I know how to do them and can do them. Woo Hoo:)!!
After relaxing and a hot tub, did Karen Fowlers 16min yoga for runners. Felt great, and each time I do it it feels better and better:)!!
Walked 0.62 miles again
