Even though the high today is still 99. :)
We've got no big plans for today. I already got some yoga in, but now it's time to simply enjoy the day off from work.
And share with you my training from this past week.
Week 4 of training is in the bag!
I had to make a couple of adjustments, but I'm still happy with how it's going. :)
|The Plan||The Reality|
Since I had skipped my run last Sunday, I didn't want to have two rest days in a row, plus I was itching to run Monday morning, that I started the week off with 2 miles. :)
I had the best stairs run on Tuesday, in place of hills, and I was really feeling it the next morning - and Thursday, too. Loved it!!
Wednesday's rest day was nice, and it was the only day I biked to work last week, so it was kind of an active rest day. :)
Thursday's 6 miles were super fun, but about two miles in I rolled my ankle.
Possibly not the smartest idea to keep on moving, but I just didn't want to stop! I iced it, rubbed Biofreeze on it, and took Friday and Saturday as rest days to let it heal. It was feeling good enough that I was able to get in 10 miles yesterday.
Up next week? SPEED WORK!! I've been having a LOT of difficulty maintaining anywhere near a 10:00min/mi pace lately - even on my shorter runs, which used to easily be sub-10:00. I'm hoping that the addition of speed work will help.
