Today's workout results

Sunday, January 17, 2010

As some of you may know, I've signed up for a 14K in Feb, my first 1/2 marathon in March and I'm joining KATMOMMA3, MSWEEZER & SEKSUNSHINE for the hardest 1/2 marathon in the northwest in April. Sometimes I scare myself and wonder what I'm thinking. LOL

So I've been training and today was the day I decided to test my stamina and endurance. I was going for my best and 4 hours on the treadmill. So here's the results:

I ran 9 miles in 104mins at 5 mph (I got my 14k in the bag - Yea!!)
I walked after that for 72 min at 3.8 mph
And I finished by walking another 71 min at 3.5 mph
Total time 247 min or 4hrs and 7 min and a total of 16.5 miles. emoticon

My legs officially feel like rubber bands, but I did it and I'm tooting my own horn! Toot Toot LOL. Robie Creek, here I come!

    Those must be rubber bands of iron!

    I see no reason to be scared. Just build in some recovery time and you should be running (and walking) rings around everyone.

    Outstanding indeed Jenn!! Toot away.

    I'm still tired from yesterday being outside and then today at my walking class they did their test of sorts on using the racewalk technique and timed us. I was tired before we started but pushed and now I feel it . I'm wiped. I never asked until the end and by then it was too late as the main instructor had to leave early and I didn't realize he took the info with him. I was told I was in the 12 minute range but that was for just 1 mile.

    Now I need to rest up and get back to normal. Rubber legs indeed. You'll do great in February. I've no doubt.
