1/2 Mary Training: 45 Minute Run

Annie and I got up at 5am again today and got in our scheduled 45 minutes running. It was a little cooler this morning so the run went very well. The only problem is that I haven't charged my Garmin and it died on us about 5 minutes into the run. Annie had on her HRM and we used it as our timer.

Since the Garmin died I am not sure of the distance we did but since I am getting used to this running stuff I am guessing we did a pace of around 9:30 - 9:45/mile so that probably put is at 4.7 - 4.8 miles total. I missed not having the Garmin! Once thing is for sure and that is that I have zero doubt in my mind I can do the 1/2 Marathon. I am pretty sure I can do 13.1 miles at a comfortable pace at this point. Might have to go longer..maybe???

I really wanted to get a swim in tonight but my side Real Estate gig may have just smashed the ball out of the park and I have some pretty big time commitments ahead me in the next few days/months. Not complaining because it is a good thing!

Tomorrow morning is a 50 minute easy run!

Thanks for Reading,

  1. I, too, have become dependent on the Garmin. It is one of those things where not having it makes me feel like something is wrong. I will where mine during the marathon.
