I made it to the gym last night...I had some errends in town while I was there, so my workout got cut short, but it was all good. I have my current pace for a mile. 14 minutes for a mile. So conceivably, I would run a 5K in 45 minutes. I say conceivably...becuase addmittedly, I get tired so I start to slow down and I start to walk more.
Sooooo my plan of attack:
1. Work on endurance...I have to be able to be consistent with my 3 miles....being able to do my 14 minute mile consistently for the whole 3.1 miles.
2. Push myself to run more and walk less. (my first mile I did really good last night...ran four walked one...but that started dropping as the time progressed)
3. Speed it up. last night I did my walk at 3.5...and my run (jog) at 5. As they said in the episode of I Love Lucy while she was in the chocolate factory "Speed 'er up!"
4. When I'm on a treadmill, try to increase my inline. (I did some of my run on a slight incline...it really did make a difference). I've read that when on a treadmill, that doing a slight incline helps make a treadmill run more like a road run.
Sooo there is my plan. I have my base test results.....now to improve.
Tonight is Zumba! YIPPEE!
My eating...under control yesterday. I did have a treat of ice cream last night, but well within my budget of food points!
