First things first - I talked to my old boss about my encounter on the nearby trail close to work and he confirmed that yes, wild pigs are known to hang out in that area. In fact, one time he saw 10-12 of them at once! Even better, apparently they *can* run fast - as fast as humans.
He said they won't bother you but even so, I don't plan to run near that area again.
Anyway, overall this has been a great workout week for me. Now that I have some events coming up, I've been a bit more disciplined with my training.
Here's a recap:
Avg pace: 9:44 min/mi
Note: This was a treadmill run and amazingly, it wasn't that bad! I only meant to do 1.5-2 miles as a warm up to weights but I was feeling pretty good that I cranked out 3 instead.
Spin class + weights
Avg pace: 9:52 min/mi
Avg hr: 172bpm
I don't want to toot my own horn, but these are awesome splits for me! I'm thrilled anytime I score a sub-10:00 split. Now to be honest, I pause my watch during water/walk breaks. BUT I didn't take my first break until mile 4 so I'm really pleased with the first half of that run. But I did poop out a bit for the second half...
Avg pace: 11.6mph
Avg hr: 135bpm
I'll do a separate post on this bike ride later on because it was quite the adventure. I joined my friend KB and two of her friends for a 3 hour bike ride through the Golden Gate bridge, Sausalito, and Tiburon. I definitely need to do more hill work as I feel bad when people have to wait for me at the top.
Anyway, I am now completely beat. Hope you all had a good week!
