7K Run # 4

Tonight I ran 7K in 1hour and 1min.  That is a whole 6mins faster then last week!  This more then makes up for the fact I skipped my cross training yesterday!

6.09K Run

This morning I ran 6.09K in 56mins.  Faster then my last 6K run!  There is a nice Moving Comfort jacket at the running store but it is $90...  I will have to wait until there is a sale.

3K Run #3

Tonight I ran 3K  in 25mins.  This is faster then my last 5K!  My Garmin was working right and did not record my pace only my time.  :(  I guess it just doesn't like it when I run downtown!

5K Run #4

Tonight I ran 5K in 44mins.  This is the same time as I ran the Barking Frog Summer Night 5K back in July!  I definitely enjoy running in this cooler weather more than the heat and humidity of the summer.

Cross Train #6

Tonight I went to the gym for about 1/2 hour on the elliptical.  I would have spent a little more time at the gym tonight but I was ticked off that the TVs on the elliptical machines were not working again.  I am not sure where our membership dues go but for some reason the TVs never seem to work on the barely year old machines.

10.16K Run

This morning I ran 10.16K in 1hour and 33mins.  This is faster then my last 10K run.  Even though the half marathon clinic I was in is over, our group leader agreed to let us meet up again on Saturday mornings through out the fall if anyone wanted to run together.

4K Run #3

Tonight I ran 4K in 36mins.  Faster then my last 4K run.  It is getting colder out and I need to look into getting a winter running wardrobe.  I have my long sleeve shirt I got from the Springbank 1/2 Marathon, but nothing else for the colder weather.  I went to Walmart tonight a bought another long sleeve running shirt and a pair of yoga pants.  I am pretty short so I need to be able to hem the pants I buy.  I know I can hem the yoga pants fine, so I went with those instead of a more "technical" material.  Earlier this year I made a pair of yoga pants into a pair of running capris and they have been working out well!  Any suggestions of what I should be wearing heading into the winter months?  Living in London, Ontario Canada can get pretty chilly and if it is anything like last winter, pretty snowy!

5K Run #3

Tonight I ran 5K with the running group that meets Wednesday nights.  My Garmin wasn't working right, but I ran it in 46mins.  Not bad for my first run after the 1/2 marathon.

Springbank 1/2 Marathon!

Today I ran my first 1/2 Marathon.  I ran the Springbank 1/2 Marathon in 3 hours, 6 minutes and 10 seconds!  I am pretty happy with that result considering I did not have an ideal training week leading up to the race, due to a number of reason.  I had no issues with my foot today just the regular aches and pains that come from running that distance.

Me at the starting line!
The first portion was a loop around back through the start, so this is around 2.5K
This is just before the 4K mark
Around the 19K
Coming up the the finish!
Crossing the finish line!  They had announced my name so everyone was cheering me on!
Getting my medal!
My medal!
Here is my running schedule for the next week:
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Rest Day
Wednesday: 5K Run
Thursday: Rest Day
Friday: 4K Run
Saturday: 6K Run
Sunday: Rest Day
Since our running group is now done I will have to create my own training schedule for the Halloween Haunting 10K run on October 30th.
