Monday arrived and I would swear that as I arrived to work it felt as if I had just left 10 minutes earlier on Friday. Don’t get me wrong, I had a wonderful weekend but boy it went by too fast.
After work I went home and quickly changed into my running clothes. The plan was to run until my husband arrived home from work, go for a short visit to his parents for his moms birthday, and then come back home for another run together. So off I go for run #1. The weather was perfect. I decided not to plan my route and just take turns at random. This was great and my feet just lead the way. For the most part my breathing was calm and the route was fairly flat with about 4 decent hills to get the heart rate pumping. As I ran past one house the cutest little boy yelled “look mommy it’s a runner” and I laughed realizing he was talking about me. Too cute!! I have a fan!! Never became to labored so I knew that for the most part I had made this a pretty easy run. Finished 5.14 miles / 9:14 pace, quick stretch, and then off we went to my in-laws. After arriving back home my husband and I headed out for another short run. Real easy, enjoyable time together.
Today I will head to the Y for a few miles on the dreaded Treadmill. I like to run one mile at a quick pace then follow it with a round of resistance training, jump back on the Treadmill and continue this cycle until I have 4 miles in. I guess the correct term would be Circuit Training. I have continued to keep my lower body training with little to no weights and so far I have not been feeling the heavy fatigue that I had while running.
Happy day to everyone. Run fast out there!!
