Saturday's Run Round The Park

Saturday, June 09, 2007

I am tired right now, went straight to my Mummy from the park. Just got back and I need to take a shower... NOW!!!

Vickii and I planned to go for a long run today... ~ 1 hour 30 minutes.

We ran for 1 hour 40 minutes... I think this is the first time I have ever run for this long. It wasn't very easy for me but we did it! We should be doing this again next weekend. If we are taking part in a half marathon in September, we need to easily run, at least, 2 hours... and also work on our pace.

Vickii told me she's noticed my pace is not constant... I speed up and slow down. I thought about it and I think it's the park - after running up slopes, I slow down ALWAYS before I pick up my pace again. I need to do hill runs once a week because Vickii seems to be fine with the slopes.

I am going to take a shower, eat and chilllllll.

Should be training tomorrow morning before church.

Enjoy your weekend :-)

Running down hills is always the easy part than running up it. I've just started running up slopes myself. Best wishes with your paces girl.

@Waffy :-) You will definitely do 40 minutes PLUS next week!

@CG I will have to do hill running once a week because almost all races have hills and I don't want to slow down during a race o! :-) Thank you.
Well done!

I'm so glad we did this but honestly, my body was so tired for the rest of the day. I guess if we do it everyweek, we should get used to it in two or three weeks.
