Monday: 10 miles at 8:27 average pace. Since I missed the long run last week I really wanted to start this week off right. It was a great way to start it off! I ran with Jami and we were able to easily hit my goal of running under an 8:30 pace. (30 seconds slower than Ogden Marathon goal pace).
Thursday: 12 miles at 9:47 average pace. I ran with Mindy. This is a good thing because I think I would have had a heart attack when were were howled at by wolves.
Seriously. I wish I were joking.
Doug Seuss- owner of Bart the Bear, the grizzly bear actor from the movie "The Edge", lives on one of my regular long run routes. He owns grizzly bears and wolves. I've run past his place gillions of times. I have NEVER been howled at. It was at about 9:30 PM and it was positively bone chilling.
Note to self: BUY SOME MACE.
Friday: IT Band Rehab routine- glutes, calves and foot strengthening exercises. 45 minutes.
Saturday: 4 mile tempo run 7:27 average pace. I slept in and had to cut the run a little short, but I felt pretty good about my pace. It kicked my butt. I definitely need to do some more solo running so I can get back in shape. I'd like to consistently run 7:30's again soon.
Last week's goal: Strength train twice/week. This is getting embarrassing. If I don't do it this week, I'm pretty sure I will be fired as a FitFluential Ambassador.
This week's goal: Strength train twice/week. IT. MUST. HAPPEN.
What is the freakiest thing that has happened to you on a run?The wolves. By far. It was terrifying. Well, and there was the other time that I thought I was being followed by a car. And the two skunks that I almost ran into. Those would have been bad news as well.
