Change of Scenery

Posted in Drumming by gpdrums on January 8, 2009

I’m at 75% of this week’s goal.

Yesterday I ran 3.1 miles again, using the same route as Monday. I ran the entire time, save for about 45 seconds waiting at a red light. I felt good by the end of the run. I walked a 1/4 mile to bring my heart rate down then did about 15 minutes of stretching. My only disappointment was such a slow pace… just over 14 minutes.

Today I toned down my run just a tad. I was ready for a change of scenery and ran 2.6 miles along a different route. I ran a little be better pace at 13:45, walked it off for a 1/4 mile, and stretched.

I had an interesting thing about changing the scenery… On one hand, a change of scenery is nice and breaks up the monotony of a routine route. On the other hand, a change of scenery makes it difficult to gauge time and distance. The thing is, if I don’t change my scenery often, I might get spooked on Marathon day.

I’m planning to run about 3 miles again on Saturday. Next week, however, I might tone it down for a week–something like 20 minutes out and back, running only, and running a little faster. Then, over the following weeks, I’ll add more time with longer times on the weekends. Around the 2nd week of February I’ll start my official 16 week training program.
