Kan’t Keep Up With The Kardashians

July 28, 2012

I had a decent workout today. My cold is not as bad as it has been, temperatures are a little cooler and I took it easy. Here’s today’s workout:

Distance: 9 miles

Time: 1:08:04 (7:34/mile)

I should clarify why I say I took it easy. Today was supposed to be a day of running my route at or near my race pace for my October marathon. My race pace should be around 7:15/mile. I clearly was a little short of that number. Normally, I have Friday’s off so I can go for it IF I have a pace run on Saturday. Since I had to make up a missed track/speed workout yesterday, my legs didn’t feel fresh. So, I choose to run slower today and in order to have a shot to complete my long run tomorrow. Clearly, I kan’t keep up with Kim, Kourtney, Kloe and Momma Bear and it doesn’t bother me one bit(e).

Looking ahead, I plan to do at least one more treadmill mountain marathon prior to the Ascent. That will likely be this week on Thursday. Otherwise, I continue to follow my normal marathon training schedule in order to hit the mountain in the best shape possible. Since I can’t control my body’s response to altitude or the incline, I choose to focus on the things I can control…like being fit.

Tomorrow’s Workout:

19 miles
