YTD: 214/600 for 2012
This past week was dedicated to Running, Loving, Living’s Welcome to Summer Virtual Run!
For the past two weeks, I increased my weekly mileage & my knee has been bothering me a bit (not hurting, just annoying) so I decided to limit myself a little this week.
I’ve also starting being more diligent when it comes to drinking my Joint Health drink -
At least once a day…
The reviews were all great & the price was excellent (Swanson Vitamins is super reasonably priced & has a wide variety of supplements, health food items, etc.)! Plus, Tart Cherry Extract is supposed to benefit joint health by strengthening collagen structures in your connective tissues. I thought, why not try it out!
I’ll let ya know if I notice any improvement
Any way – onto my runs!
On Monday June 18, BLC & I ran our 5k in about 32 minutes (cooled down for about .9 miles for an even 4 on the day) over the Williamsburg Bridge. It was pretty warm but there was a nice breeze on the bridge. Overall, nice little run!
On Thursday June 21, I had a tempo run scheduled but I wanted to get my 10k in before the weekend. I decided to run a progression 10k! Progression runs are supposed to train your body to gradually increase your pace so that when you are running a race, your body is comfortable picking up your speed at the end when your legs are tired. Here was what I did on the treadmill:
Warmup – 5.6 speed, 1mile
10k – dunzo!
Thanks for hosting the Welcome to Summer Virtual Run, Toni!!
Now for some articles that may be of some interest.
Running on vacation/running on the beach! (This is a big one for me & BLC – we are going to Aruba on Saturday for a week & we just signed up for a race! Hint: It’s my first & I’m pretty nervous it! I will write about it soon but if you just NEED to know now – it’s on my Twitter! Also, ADD ME
