It's been a while....

Okay. So, I have been without internet access for about a week. Yikes. Umm, monday night our neighbor's yard was struck by lightning and it killed our computer at home. Not cool. I attempted to fix it by replacing the power source in the tower, but that didn't work. So, as of yesterday we have replaced that computer and I have been attempting to get this router working. Not having much luck. But, I do have internet access directly through the modem.

So, I am sure all have been wondering what I have been up to with my time away from the computer....

Tuesday.... REST day.

Wednesday ..... LONGER run.
Distance: 6.05 miles
Duration: 1:16:00
Temp: 67 degrees
Humidity: 51%
Avg Pace: 12:33
Avg HR: 171
Max HR: 185
.....my right knee hurt a bit through the first mile and a half or so. I was contemplating turning around and doing only a couple miles. But, shortly after that, I got into my groove and it felt fine. I felt like a robot. Ran about 6-8 minutes and walked a minute between each. I probably could have gone further, but the loop I did got me 6 miles by the time I got home and I wasn't feelin' like going much further. The only thing that felt the slightest bit sore were my groin muscles...

Thursday... short easy run
Distance: 3.05 miles
Duration: 37:30
Temp: 65 degrees
Humidity: 68%
Avg Pace: 12:17
Avg HR: 168
Max HR: 180
.....Felt good. Did more than I thought I was going to be able to do after my "longer" run. Ran 7/ Walk1. Completed this 3 mile loop faster than on Monday.

Friday... REST day.
....went to the PBR challenge this evening. It was a blast!

Saturday.... went for a nice ride with the bike...
Distance: 12. 83 miles
Duration: 59:23
Temp: 72 degrees
Humidity: 71%
Avg Pace: 4.37
Avg HR: 149
Max HR: 170
... it was perfect for a ride... except the paths were full of walkers, runners, and cyclists... I had to slow down so often it was rediculous...

Today might have to be another rest day. I went out last night with a few friends. Let's just say it has been a while....

Happy Running, y'all!

Nice series of workouts! Sorry to hear about the puter. May it rest in piece :-)

Good job on the runs. Love the "it's been a while" line! LOL! Remember back in the day? Put in a full day after a late night. For me, those days are gone. Age allows you to wake up the next morning and say "to hell with it"! ;)

Glad you are back, we were wondering where you had gone.

Great set of work outs. I hate to hear about the computer, that happens though I guess.

Makita said...

Looks like you had a great week of workouts! : )

Computer problems can be so frustrating. Sorry you had to replace yours and are still vexed with router issues. Never fun.
