Slacker week

I've been pretty sick this week after my first run on Tuesday. Stomach sickness, stuffy head and exhausted much of the time so this morning it felt good to get out and run a 10k long run in 53:08, or a pace of 8:29 per mile. I also took care to stretch a little before the run and a longer stretch when I returned so my glutes aren't aching now. The run felt great with a temperature of 51 degrees and I felt like I could have carried on running South if I had wanted.
I just bought the Nike Speed training workout mix 1 of the iTunes store so I'll be reporting how it went sometime this week. This mix has you warm up for 10 minutes at a comfortable pace before doing four intervals of increasing intensity, guided all the way by Alberto Salazar. I'll let you know how it goes!
