This weeks Dopey Challenge Training (by Jeff Galloway), called for:
Tuesday 45 Minutes – I ran this on Monday. I ran 3.25 miles in 34:27 (10:36/mi pace) with Doug and Kylee. We ran using a 3:1 run/walk ratio. We parked at the elementary school, like we do every Monday. However, instead of heading North, I suggested we head South, run into the county park and make a pit stop at the park bathrooms. It ended up being a really nice run, with a nice change of scenery and it was Kylee’s first time in the park. I think we’ll have to make it a semi-regular route. However, we were looking for about 4 miles and only ended up with 3.25. So we’ll have to make another loop somewhere to add on the additional .75 miles.
Thursday 45 minutes – I ran this on Tuesday. I ran 4.3 miles in 47:35 (11:04/mi pace) with Kylee. We ran using the same 3:1 run/walk ratio. We ran the 2.5 mile loop at Buetter Park in Mishawaka, like we do every Tuesday or Thursday, and then ran part of the loop a second time giving us a total of 4.3 miles. The weather today was about 63 degrees, perfect running weather, but also perfect for making your nose run!
Saturday 5.5 mile walk – I’m going to try to do this walk/run on Friday.
Sunday 15 mile run – I’m going to run this Saturday morning.
Next Week calls for:
Tuesday: 45 minutes
Thursday: 45 minutes
Saturday: 3 mile walk
