Well, this morning was the first day of Katy Fit. On tap this morning was a pace finder run. The schedule stated that this was to be a 1 mile pace finder but when we toed up to the line for instructions, I learned that we were actually doing a 2 mile trial run, which for me is a moderate long run. Afterwards, we gathered for a little intro lecture. I happened to walk up just about the time it was concluding. Then we quickly met our group coaches who were handing out smart I.D. tags and then were on our merry way.
The run... Well, I must say it felt pretty awesome. I shed my HRM and distance pod and just ran. I kept an very even pace throughout the 2 miles. The trail is marked every .25 miles which I love. So, I did the 2 miles in 30:51, a pretty good pace for me. I wasn't pressing too hard. Just a nice easy pace. I had some left in the tank after I was done. We did a smart thing for this run which I'm not used to doing. We walked .5 miles before and after the actual 2 mile run. I walked briskly both before and after the run.
Schedule for next week:
Monday: 20 minutes
Tuesday: 25 minutes
Wednesday: off (I'll probably swim and do some weights)
Thursday: 20 minutes
Friday: off (swim)
Saturday: 3 miles
