Comfort zone

I ran this in my comfort zone, apparently, as I was not huffing and puffing during my walk breaks. I settled into a nice comfortable pace for my run segments with good effort. I'm happy with the results too, 11 min miles!

I included my weekly total of all activities; almost three hours of movement isn't bad, I suppose. I guess a three hour half marathon is alright too.

EDIT: Here's the Garmin data:

Cool and blustery

It was back to two long sleeve shirts, a marmot tech jacket, insulated sweat pants, headband, and gloves for this walk. I'm off tomorrow and get to run 2.4 miles on Saturday.

Longer intervals

I am now trying 35/30 intervals. I am also trying to run at a pace where I'm not huffing and puffing.

No, not for me. This walk was slower than Sunday's. No, for my puppy! This morning, he pooped outside for the first time!!! And then, if that wasn't enough, he pooped outside again after I got home from work! YAY BENJI!!!!!

Feeling it

Alrighty, I think I might need to cut down the run pace. I was huffing and puffing during my walk breaks, so I think I'm pushing a little too hard. I'll try to slow it down a bit on Wednesday so I won't hurt myself.

Breaking 4 MPH

My walking continues to improve as I walked longer and faster this time. It was sunny and cool (49°F) today, so that did something I'm sure.

Was not expecting this

If you look at the graph on Garmin connect, an interesting pattern emerges in the middle of my run. I like the sawtooth pattern before .83 miles and after 1.3 miles, but I'm not sure I like the square wave pattern in between those two points. My highs are higher, but my lows are lower. I think this is also a good indicator of how my races usually go as I struggle in the middle of the course.

EDIT: Oh, and sub 11 minute miles, yeah!
