The Verdict Is.......

First off I would like to say how much every one's support means to me. Thank you!!!

I took a couple days off. I had to get my head clear and decide what I want to do. I have a lot of drama here in my home. And it has made things very difficult.

After a long discussion with my trainer who gives such great guidance, and after a long discussion with the family. I have come to the conclusion that I will continue to train, and follow this through, as long as I get the time off from work and less drama.I have to wait another 2-3 weeks before I know if I have it off.

I know I can do the distance, and I know I can do a 13 minute mile. I am good up to mile 7-8 then I start to slow down. But at that point I do believe they will leave all of us alone.

With that....
I did my sprints last night on the dreadmill.
These were the fastest ones I have ever done. I pushed real hard. I tracked my sprint time.
Here is my time.
first 5 minutes, was incline 5, at speed 3.4
the the next 15 minutes was at incline 0, and speed 7.0, 30 seconds on, and 30 off. 1.26 I was on then for 30 seconds later I was off at 1.34. That;s how that went. I do not know how to count the splits.
then the last 10 minutes, was incline 10, at speed 5.0, 30 seconds on and 30 off. 2.26 on and then 2.31 off.. My ending miles was 2.99 miles.
Then this morning at 4:45am,yes I said this morning, I did 2.0 miles outside. Before work. I was going to do 2.5 miles. ANd now I am doing my resistance work out and then tomorrow 2.5 miles before work then the hill sprints when I get home after work.

Thanks again!!!! Form the bottom of my heart.

Miles this week 4.99

Glad to hear you were sticking to it. And as far as time (and assuming my math is right)... If you can do 13 minute pace for the first seven miles, then you only have to pace about 19 minutes for the remaining six miles in order not to be swept. I'm sure you can do it.

I'm SO glad to hear that Rae!!!!

Also take into consideration that you are going to have the adrenaline going, your going to have all of us there with you (it seems like we are at the same pace, so I probably will be running next to you anyway,lol), and your going to be having a blast!

Keep it up girl!!! You're going to make it! No... wait YOU WILL MAKE IT!!!!!!!
