Gym day today. I've got the 5K coming up this Sunday and wasn't quite sure how to prepare for it as I've been running by following a half marathon schedule. I looked online and saw that Hal Higdon also has a 5K training schedule (of course he does).
I'm just looking at the last week, number 8 and so far I've been going by that. Yesterday, I did the 2 miles (but actually did 3 easy miles, I couldn't help but do another). Today I did the 6x200 on the treadmill. It would have been nice to run on a track, but that wasn't possible with my two year old around and with rainy weather. I also jogged 2 miles. Tomorrow will be the 3 mile tempo.
Other interesting things of the day, took the boys to their swim lesson. We were actually late due to a downed power line that blocked both sides of Route 1. Luckily we were on the side that had lanes open. The other side going North was at a complete stand still. I would have hated to have been on that side. I felt really bad for the drivers on that side. As for us, we were only about 15 minutes late to the swim lesson, which I didn't think was too bad. Their swim instructor was really nice however, and said we can have a make-up session tomorrow at the same time. That was so nice of her.
After swim was a MOMs Club ice cream social event, where the boys had fun running around the park. It's amazing how kids can still have fun even though it's cold and wet out. They loved the ice cream and toppings. Doesn't that look good?
Hope you had a great day!
