I went to my local running store, I wanted to look at new shoes. I tried on the Brooks PureFlow 2s. They fit so nice! I bought them - in diva pink! Love it. I decided to take them onto the treadmill, I was going to get my 17 miles, even if I split it up into 2 runs. I ran 6.5 on the treadmill, for a total of 17.1 for the day. I feel a little bit better about my day, but I am still very angry at myself - hopefully this is a feeling I will remember and will not give up again!
My run this morning was going well, I was trying to stay nice and slow, around a 10:30min/mile pace.
I had a busy weekend of running - more than what I have done in the past, my 'week':
An Easy run:
17 miles - split into two runs, 10.6 and 6.5
The 6.5 I did at the gym on the treadmill.
I started for a mile at 6.0, then upped it every mile 0.2, ending at 7.2. I felt good. It ended up being tough, but my legs felt great. I was a touch under 60 minutes for the 6.5 miles.
Anyone ever split their long runs? I feel that it is ok, not all the time, but just once in awhile. Especially as I am training for multiple races over 4 days.
