Phew. Last week was tiring. I was up late working most nights, up a few times in the night with LM, and then waking up at the crack of dawn to run. I know I can’t keep this up for a while, so I’m just doing what I can right now to keep up the runs. AND last week was pretty good in terms of running – with some ups and downs. One morning I felt great … and then the next morning, I could barely run at all. I guess that’s how it goes? Here’s what it looked like:
Nearly 20 miles! I’m happy with that.
Some days I was FAST (for me right now) and hitting sub-10-minute mile paces …
Other days I couldn’t keep it together and felt like I was running in slow motion! Friday I ran 3.52 miles and hit a 10:40 pace – nearly one minute slower per mile than a day earlier.
I took Saturday as a much needed rest day, and with a nature hike we took as a family, still got in my goal of 11,000+ steps. No wonder I’m tired!
Some questions for you:
- Do you hit your step goal on non-running days?
- How many rest days do you take?
