Todays run was 7.5 miles at an 8:31 pace. Can I just say how wonderful 50 degrees feels to a runner!!!
I thought I would add a little more detail on my speed workouts. I have, for a long time, used and loved the McMillan calculator to determine the pace for my speedwork. It is great because you can pick a time you are going for, put it into the calculator and it will tell you what your training paces should be. Once you plug in your distance and time it will go to your training paces. From there you can even put it if you are better at speed or distance (top right corner).
Right now I am actually not using that. I am using MPR’s (maximum performance running) training paces and workouts. I don’t love their short speed workouts because I like to do mine based on distance not time. So for example for 400, 800 and even 1200 track workouts I use McMillan’s running calculator. Right now though, I am focusing more on stamina and I am really loving the workouts and paces provided by MPR. (It is a bit trickier to figure out…but not too hard). For about the last 2 weeks I have replaced my speed workout with a tough stamina workout in hopes that this will help me hold my pace through the marathon.
Now onto the verdict….
I do not like sweet potatoes! If you love them I am sorry…send me your recipe and I will try it :). I made them again last night hoping to like them because they are so good for runners….nope. I baked them and then added a butter, brown sugar, walnut and cinnamon topping. My husband thought it was really good…me, nah! I ate 1/2 of mine to reap some benefits but I didn’t really like it. Oh well!
Who loves oreos?
Do you use McMillan running calculator?
Sweet potatoes…yes or no?
