NYC Marathon Training Week #1 – Saturday

 

I’m getting lazy with my Instagramming. Not only does this photo have nothing to do with today’s post, it’s from a few weeks ago.

My third run of the week was supposed to be a 60 minute “moderate tempo” run. But since it is Saturday, the day before my long run, I decided to make it a 60 minute easy run to not destroy my legs – which are still hurting from my speedwork. I think I took it too easy between training cycles.

I went out mid-morning, hoping to beat the rain. I did. I found the first half of this run rough, I couldn’t get into a rhythm at all. But minutes 30-50 were okay. My legs loosened up and I found a pace that was comfortable.

In the end, it was a slow one. But it got done.
