Workout notes: yoga, then 5 mile run/walk on the treadmill, 2 walk outside.
The treadmill: 5.2-5.3, 5.5-5.6, then 6.1-6.4 for 10, 6.7 for 5 min, 6.8-6.9 (22:00, 40:19 at 4), walk .5 then jog to 53:40 for 5.
Then walk 2 outside. Weight: 189.
I wanted to get at least a little turnover but also some sunshine.
Editorial: there was some Instagram fitness model photo where this young woman says “I am determined to break 4 hours; I know that goal is crazy…”
Assuming she is talking about a marathon and not a 50K: no, it is far from “crazy”; it is a goal that I have made 8 times (including 4 times as a 40 year old plus) and I do NOT have aptitude for that distance…or for running in general. I think that this is what happens when so many attempt the marathon without making the proper investment in training; what should be a routine goal is viewed as “crazy.” It isn’t…not for a younger person.
