I’m out of town and can’t run. I’m a little bummed about that.
Tuesday was my last run and it my running keeps getting better (finally). I am sticking to my 5 mile route for now and the mountain on the weekend. Tuesday, I went out slow at first. As I got going, I started feeling better and stronger.
Here are the splits:
My legs felt strong. My hip felt good overall. It always seems to bug me a little more at the end of my runs, but not much.
So at an 8:19 overall pace, this was the best 5 miles I’ve run in my neighborhood in a long time.
So, is it the mountain running or the ACV (apple cider vinegar)? Yes, I am still doing both. Either way, I am getting good results and am excited about my race at the Country Music Half Marathon in April. I do need to work on my long runs though. I still stop at 8 miles after going up the mountain and back. I would like to add more miles to that soon. That should wear my legs out well.
Anyway, no running yesterday, but I hope to get home before dark so I can run today.
I hope you all are happy and running. I also hope to get back reading blogs soon.
Your cadence looks good. Is that what it’s always been?
I’m sure the hill running has contributed a ton. Also, I started trying the cider vinegar. I don’t know if it’s helped yet, but it hasn’t hurt 😉
My cadence is usually 90, so that is a little higher then normal (probably the ACV) 🙂
90 is a really good cadence!
Thanks! That was one thing I really worked hard at when I first started running.
Hope you got to run. Glad your hip is good.
Thanks. Sadly I got home in time, but I had two cars in two different shops for problems and spent hours waiting to pick them up. So no running again yesterday. I can really tell an attitude shift when I can’t run. Today it is going to rain all day, but Lord willing, I’ll be out there anyway.
