Today I managed to get up a little early and go out for a run. Here are the details from the iPod/Nike+ dohickey:
- Distance: 3.24 miles
- Time: 29:37
- Pace: 9:07 min/mi
- Calories: 451
I really felt the fact that I haven’t really run in about 2 weeks – it was harder than I anticipated. In a week or two, I’m sure I’ll be right back in the swing of things and feeling good again.
I also officially started my marathon training plan for the Twin Cities
Marathon. I’m following a pretty straight forward plan from Hal Higdon, which I think will work fairly well. I think if I just get the miles in and stick with the plan, I’ll do well and be able to finish strong. I actually had to modify the plan just a little because I’m starting training 20 weeks out rather than 18 – so I just added 2 weeks up front.
So, I’m off to a good start and I plan on keeping it up!
