I’ve been thinking and thinking about the New Rules of Lifting for Women. After the advice of Helen, Lori en Amy who all done the program and reading about it on the internet I decided that right now is not the time for me to start with the program. Maybe at the end of this year.
Instead I’m starting over with a fitness program for beginners because I don’t have much base in that department. The program is from the book 101 Workouts for Women and it has a lot of other programs that I can do after the first one. I will start in May with 2 workouts a week.
About the Garmin: I decided to charge it after every run. I always understood it was better for a battery to use it all up because your battery would last longer in the end. But I’m not going to play with this anymore. I used it on Thursday and today and it worked perfect.
Thursday morning I had an excellent short run of 4.8K (3 miles).
This morning I had to do 17.6K (11 miles) again. I decided to run an extra K and ended up doing 18.6K (11.5 miles). The run itself was very good, I had to walk a few times more than on previous runs but overall I’m very happy with this run. Only 15 days to go and 1 more long run before that. I’ve never been more ready for a race than for this one.
And … I wore capri tights! Finally! I put away my Winter running clothes and changed them with my Summer running clothes.
Weather: dry, sunny, not to much wind, 12C (53 degrees)
Distance: 18.6 K / 11.5 miles
Average time: 7:08 /km
Average speed: 8.4 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Glee Cast – Keep holding on
