Hi! My name is sore!

Still from those freakin lunges! Today I've sort of hammered out my running career and I'm pretty stoked.

Tuesdays and Thursdays will be 5-6 mile hill work and speed work. So like 1-ish mile warm up 3-4 miles of speed pace or going up the hills, and 1-ish mile cool down.

Saturdays or Sundays will be the long run. Currently at 7 miles, long term goal to do 10-15 easy miles on the weekend run.

I'm feeling pretty darn close to these goals. Honestly I don't have the drive or interest to do a marathon and more importantly I don't have the knees. I can work hard, take care of myself and still run a half no problem. But that's really all the goals I have.

Cross training including 3 times a week swim, 3 times a week weights and a couple times a week biking. I'd like to up to 5-6 times a week biking and will start adding in after I adjust to my increased mileage.

Someday I'd like to also add another easy 4-6 miler in the week.

Oh and skating. Clearly I'm doing ok on the conditioning end. Skills need work. Jam reffed tonight. I still love it.

Ran 2 miles at 7mph, 2.5 miles at 6mph, and 1.7 miles at 5.5mph
Core 20 minutes
