I’m a little late in posting this, but here it is!
Monday – No workout today. Mondays are my day off. I also really wanted to let my knee rest after that monster 13.1 miler from the day before. Today I went and purchased “The Complete Book of Running for Women” by Claire Kowalchik. Looking forward to reading it!
Tuesday – Since tonight was a short run, I decided to push myself to increase my pace. I did 4.02 miles on the treadmill (1.5% incline) in 38:56 (9:40/mile). Hooray! I got my sub-10:00/mile! I definitely felt like I was pushing myself harder than I normally do on my runs. But it was a good push. Still having trouble fitting in my P90X (running plus at least an hour of other working out is a LOT to fit in), but it’s trial-and-error and I will work it out.
Wednesday – I tried to run tonight. I put on my running clothes and shoes and went down to the treadmill. I got about 1/4 of a mile in and just DID NOT WANT TO RUN ANYMORE. So I decided to listen to my body and take a few days off. I was burned out and tired and my body needed a break.
Thursday – Rest day.
Friday – Rest day.
Saturday – Rest day. By now, I was actually starting to look forward to picking back up.
Sunday – Rest day.
