Although I have been running for a few years I am continually amazed at how much the mind plays a role in this sport.
Once I was given the green light to treadmill run I hit the Sports Club and tackled some pretty good miles.
Thursday - 10 miles flat (9:30 pace)
Friday - 12 miles hills (9:10 pace)
Saturday - 10 miles hills (8:58 pace)
Sunday - no running
Monday - 11 miles hills (8:51 pace)
The hills workout option has really helped pass the time. I have burned myself out on my music list. Saturday I watched the Punisher on my sons PSP. Today I scanned back through my music list and then just tried to keep my mind busy with others that were working out.
Next Saturday will be my first day back on the trails and running outdoors. This I will welcome!! Pumping all the liquids with at least 2 quarts being electrolytes has really helped daily. I am feeling great and my energy is good.
Tomorrow I will also resume the resistance training. Total body core, upper , and lower will be worked. Really need to strengthen the quads.
Hope all had a wonderful holiday weekend.
Congratulations to all who raced this past weekend.
