Social Anxiety from the South

PR Plan Days 4 and 5 and some other stuff

I need to plan better.  And I think I need to make these warm-ups and cool downs a bigger priority.  I’m not quite sure I’m doing them correctly…and that makes me self-conscious about doing them at all.

On the other hand, yesterday I got out there, in the rain, in the 40 degrees, in the puddles and cranked out four miles and four strides.  I did not warm-up or cool-down because rain (and I run at the park so warming up at home seems kind of pointless since the drive is between 5-20 minutes depending on where I go.)  I felt good!  I’m learning what it feels like to pace at 170-180 strides per minute and that makes you faster without trying much harder.  I was hoping for a negative split, but I ran out of time.

I forgot I had to take the kids to TKD so I had to bail on the last mile.  Again, planning.

Anyway, two more and then it’s easy runs next week before the 16 weeks of the plan actually begin.
