Time for Lap 1: 2:09.43 -3.5
Time for Lap 2: 2:19.29 -5.15
Total time: 4:28.72 -8.65
Notes: Sister came to the track with me today. Jogged the first lap faster than normal and making overall progress on how easy it is for me to get through the 2 laps without “wanting to stop and walk”.
Time for Lap 1: 2:13.19 +3.76
Time for Lap 2: 2:25.22 +5.93
Total time: 4:38.41 +9.69
Notes: Today I really wasn’t into it. Woke up late so I didn’t go in the morning and instead went in the evening. Went almost a full 10 seconds slower, but I’m ok with that because I actually got out there even though I didn’t want to.
Time for Lap 1: 2:16.42 +3.23
Time for Lap 2: 2:22.98 -2.24
Total time: 2:39.40 +0.99
Notes: I wasn’t feeling it today either and it had been raining hard the night before so everything was wet outside but decided to go anyway. As soon as I got back home from running it started pouring hard! So I ran at the perfect time. Ran slower again today.
Time for Lap 1: 2:02.96 -13.46
Time for Lap 2: 2:18.48 -4.50
Total time: 4:21.44 -17.96
Notes: Today I almost didn’t make it again. Went a little later in the afternoon (instead of the normal time in the morning) and I hadn’t eaten anything yet so I assumed I’d go even slower than the day before. This time I drank a Gatorade to at least get some sugar in me before I left (I don’t like running with food in my stomach) and this time I was able to run almost 18 seconds faster than yesterday, and about 7 seconds faster than my previous fastest time to date. Looking forward to getting this time down below 4 minutes in a few weeks time or sooner.
Time for Lap 1: 2:06.67 +3.71
Time for Lap 2: 2:22.12 +3.64
Total time: 4:28.79 +7.35
Notes: Ran later in the afternoon this time and wasn’t able to beat yesterday’s time but still feel good about it.
Time for Lap 1: 2:19.52 +12.85
Time for Lap 2: 2:28.61 +6.49
Total time: 4:48.13 +19.34
Notes: Today I was significantly slower than the last few days. I have a feeling this has to do with my poor nutrition the previous day and also since it was a bit earlier in the morning and I hadn’t stretched, my right knee was a bit stiff which made me even slower. Serves as a reminder that I will need to stretch more and improve my nutrition.
Notes: Today I didn’t make it out to the track because we went out of town and I didn’t plan for running earlier or later. We left the house at 7am and came back at almost midnight. For next time I will plan ahead so that I run before I leave.
End of Week Progress
Avg Time for Lap 1: 2:11.365 -8.283
Avg Time for Lap 2: 2:22.783 -2.057
Avg Total Time: 4:34.138 -13.726
Notes: This week was all over the place. A few days I was fast, others I was really slow. A lot of it probably had to do with how I ate certain days and how healthy some of the food was. Looking forward to seeing what next week brings!
