A Relaxed Six

Today I convinced Otto to do 2 laps of Glendoveer with me at lunch time. We reversed direction so as not to put undue strain on our legs. We covered the six in 41:40 or thereabouts and proved my rabbitting skills by correctly guessing the pace we were running (6:50/mile). Otto was off by about 20s.

After class I attended my 4th consecutive OBF Thursday ( It lived up to the hype.

Double Up

With Wednesdays being short, I like to run twice! Though I have discovered that I can make it school with shower time to spare even leaving my house at 6:45AM, which means I can run in the mornings. Next week I am hoping to start implementing this practice with 4 miles easy and progressing to 5 miles easy, which will aid in my mileage chasing goals.

Well, today I did 2 laps of Glendoveer; one in the morning, solo and one after my phys test with Otto. Went 27:50 in the morning and 27:40 in the afternoon, though the afternoon was much much easier.

Miles: 8 for the day/20.5 for the week

Workin' It Out

Because I'm running the BAC 5k this Saturday I decided to squeeze in a workout Tuesday in hopes that an extra day between workout and race would be beneficial. Plus, it was mostly threshold running which can be beneficial even if you're tired. The workout was 4x1600 w/2 min recovery, then 4x200 w/ 200j recovery. Goal paces were 5:20-:25 for the 1600s and :34 for the 200s. I opted to workout at Portland Christian so that I could still study a little bit for my Physiology test after.

2 miles warm up, drills, 4xstrides
2 miles cool down, stretching, cold shower (yeah, you wanted to know that)

This workout went very, very well. I never was out of control and really only pushed hard the last 800 of the last repeat. Considering it was fairly windy (as usual) I wasn't surprised by the 200s. But the miles felt really easy. I was just relaxing and letting everything flow, I guess I gained some strength from Ragnar!

Miles: 8.5 for the day/12.5 for the week

Another Easy One

Since Monday usually comes as a shock to me and I nearly slept through my Gen Pathology class I decided to just run an easy 4 with Otto around Glendoveer. We did it in 28 min and made sure to get a good stretch in. Ragnar was a blast, but it definitely takes something out of you to run that hard with that little recovery.

Day of Rest

In the Bible, Sunday was the day the Lord rested, so I did the same. Though in my own way. I ran an easy 4.5 miles in 31:25 on soft surfaces and made sure to stretch very well. I didn't feel too bad all things considered.

Overall at Ragnar I covered 21.5 miles in 2:05:48, which is a 5:51 per mile average. It was a blast running the event because it appeals to my wacky side that enjoys pushing myself like this. The experience was great, though I still prefer Hood to Coast!

Miles: 4.5 for the day/58.3 for the week
Pullups: 6 for the day/35 for the week, ouch.
