I Probably Should Make My Blog Public again Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://Tracy17.fastrunningblog.com/ Wed, 22 Aug 2018 01:52:31 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Apr 21, 2018 http://Tracy17.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-21-2018.html <p>I ran a few times throughout the week, but already I can&#39;t remember what days and what my mileage was.&nbsp; It was never much.&nbsp; Maybe 3 times 3 miles.&nbsp;</p> <p>I walked a little during this run, starting at about mile 7.&nbsp; I would run a mile + .04 then walk .06.&nbsp; I did that 3 times.&nbsp; Why?&nbsp; No reason.&nbsp; I just needed it, and that seemed like a good plan to keep the walking at a minimum.&nbsp; I had to run home (stopped at 8.35 miles) to drink some water and drop off my sweatshirt.&nbsp; After that, I ran 2 full miles, walked .06, then ran most of the way home.&nbsp; I did stop to fix my socks, which seemed to be bunching up weird in one of my shoes.</p> <p>I am doing my annual half next week.&nbsp; I&#39;m not in racing form.&nbsp; Last year I finished just under 1:55, and I also wasn&#39;t in racing form then.&nbsp; This year, I will be slower.&nbsp; I will be surprised if I come in under 2 hours.&nbsp; Just the result of lackadaisical training.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 21 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 14, 2018 http://Tracy17.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-14-2018.html <p>I know I did more throughout the week, but I forgot to blog.&nbsp; This was a not so great run.</p> Sat, 14 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 07, 2018 http://Tracy17.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-07-2018.html <p>This was a challenge.&nbsp; I got to 8, stretched for a minute, and then tried to just relax the pace of my last 2 miles.&nbsp; AP was 9:09.&nbsp; I can&#39;t figure out yet how to figure out my splits.&nbsp; I know the last couple miles were somewhere between 9:20 and 9:30, and I had 2-3 sub 9 pace.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 07 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 05, 2018 http://Tracy17.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-05-2018.html Ran outside. It's still unseasonably cold, like 40s today. Boo. I got my new garmin today, a vivoactive. I couldn't sync it with my phone before I ran, but did after. It's a smart watch, but I'm not sure that I am going to keep it sending me notifications. I've only had it on for a couple hours and it's kinda annoying. Anyway. I ran 4, and it was at about 8:50 pace. So it felt okay. I'm not really speed driven right now.

Would you believe it snowed again? Another 2 or 3 inches. It melted the next day.
