Hill interval runs tonight – pretty tough – I did better than last week’s interval run but I was feeling the running in my hips and I could tell my gait wasn’t a smooth as it should have been. Going to have to work out the kinks in the hips because I am pretty sure I would have done better tonight if I had felt more limber. Something to work on.
Other than that though things were good – felt strong cardio wise and was able to focus – 4 miles seemed almost too short a run. Definitely continuing to improve health wise overall – just need to keep working on the speed.
Next scheduled run is Saturday for 9 miles and then 18 miles are scheduled for Sunday – longer runs are starting to ramp up for Goofy Challenge 2014!!
Speaking of which – 10 weeks today until our travel day for the Goofy Challenge. So a good 8 weeks of solid training to go before heading into the taper. Lots of miles yet to go but looking forward to testing myself against the Challenge for the 4th time – this time being in the best shape I have ever been in going into one.
