This week was a pretty solid workout week for me. I feel great and I love that I'm feeling stronger!
Wednesday I ran 2 1/2 miles and some serious core work!
Mile 1: 8:45
Mile 2: 8:49
Mile 2 1/2: 4:54
Got a little slower, but my splits were still faster than I anticipated. I was pushing a tad, but not all out crazy. I guess I may as well get in some faster runs while I'm still pretty low in miles. As long as it feels okay, why not?
I did my core work on the bosou ball and holy crap, were my muscles screaming! Love that feeling!
Yesterday, I so didn't feel like going to the gym. I was in a crappy mood, the weather had gotten cold again and all I wanted to do was go home and take a nap. I forced myself to go, figuring the worst thing that could happen was I'd do a short workout. A bad workout is still a workout, right? Again, so glad I went because I had a seriously good workout. My plan was to do a nice easy 3-miler and some strength training.
Mile 1: 9:11
Mile 2: 8:54
Mile 3: 8:54
My consciously slow run was faster than I thought it was going to be. This is the pace I was doing when I was in much better shape. Again, it felt relaxed and comfortable so I'm not going to worry that I was going too fast. Hmmm... am I just a speed demon and didn't realize it? :)
My upper body workout rocked! I did some free weights and machines and my arms were MAXED out by the time I was done. Sweet!
Going to enjoy a rest day today and looking forward to some good runs this weekend. I hear it's suppose to be nice, so hopefully I can get some outside runs in! Happy Friday all!
