Morning run with Jamie...

I love Jamie--she keeps me laughing all the way through our runs. 45 minutes today at an average of 158 bpm (basically over when we were running and then under when I wussed out and walked--but good, because 158 is my perfect 85% MHR number). My recoveries from the mid 160's back down to 130's were good, and then I'd pick up the run again...I'd like to get it where I can go steady at 158 [excluding "hill excursions"] through an hour run, as a first goal...I know I'm cardio-vascularly up to that and more because I do that on the cross-trainer...my calves and shins weren't up to all the flexion and work that comes from real running, plus all the work was coming from the legs, not a whole-body workout like with the trainer. That said, I think I'll be with it shortly.

In January, we start training together in earnest for a marathon in the end of March or early April...I have to look up the date. Really my training starts now becaus the ENTRY criteria for the marathon training is running--on real roads, cross-trainer doesn't count--12 to 15 mile a week.

Because she and I are both travelling this weekend, instead of being wusses and waiting until Sunday or Monday morning, we'll be out on the street at OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-six-hundred again...

Okay, back to feeding the boy and getting mysef ready for work.

Come on, LJ exercise-buddies--nothing to it, but to do it! Let's have a roll call of what you've been doing or plan to do today and tomorrow! I suggest you post it in a comment, and link to it or cross-post it to your journals to!

Appointment with the trainr tonight--should I tell him my running plans and ask him to go easy on the legs so I have something for the road the next morning? * grin *

Love you all
