Introduction

Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!

Speed Training Last Night

My training plan had me doing some speed training yesterday afternoon.  Right now the plan has 4x400 with a 400 recovery in between.  I ran them in 1:17, 1:20, 1:17, 1:21 which is a great improvement over my last speed training session.  I was pretty happy when I was done, but on a side thought, if I kept that pace up without recovery, I would of averaged around a 5:25 mile.  Can you believe the olympic runners are running a sub 4 minute mile, that is CRAZY.  I guess we can only dream lol.

What did your training plan have you working on last night?  Did you consider your session a success?

Plan is to run 3 miles tonight.
