Oops. No run.


I didn’t go running this morning. Bad, bad me. Won’t be able to make it up tonight, either — got plans.

Good thing I went for a 6.2 mile walk yesterday. I walked the course for the Nike Run Hit Wonder 10K, just to get a feel for it. Took pictures of each mile point, which I’ll post at some point this week. Dayum there’s a lot of uphill parts… it even starts out uphill, going east on Alder from Broadway to 12th Ave… Yikes.

So I’ll have to shift my running schedule. Basically I’ll go with the original schedule posted by Runner’s World. Although I’m going to do the 5-mile run on Friday as I originall planned. Like this:

  • Tuesday: 2 miles in my neighborhood, 4×1:00 Aerobic Intervals (AI), finish with 2 miles.
  • Wednesday: 3 mile run – Waterfront/Esplanade? Three Parks Run?
  • Thursday: Rest day.
  • Friday: 5 miles easy run – Run to work.
  • Saturday: 4 mile run – Four Parks Run. During run, do 3 Gentle Pickups (GP).
  • Sunday: Rest day.

I also noticed that the version of this schedule that made it into the print version of the magazine has another week before the “Taper” week. But since the online schedule fits the time I have left I’m going with that one.
