Tired body, but a good long run

23 May

Last week had its ups and downs. My treadmill mileage wasn’t what I hoped it would be. On the 19th my body told me it didn’t want to run on the treadmill further than 2 miles. The 8 miler on Saturday went really well though, perhaps because I took Friday off, so to speak. My sister ran with me and it was great having her there.

I need to increase my speed and will have to designate one day a week to do speed work. The way I have written my schedule, it will be Thursdays (now I just need to make sure my mind agrees with doing speed work! :))

Running since last post:

May 16th: 3 miles on the elliptical rider & weight lifting

May 17th: 4 miles – treadmill

May 18th: 2.05 on the elliptical rider & weight lifting

May 19th: 2 miles running, then 1 mile walking – treadmill

May 21st: 8 miles outside

Overall mileage last week (May 16th – May 22nd): 14 (not including elliptical and walking)

May running mileage: 44 miles

    So glad to see you running and blogging again! I’m done with the running for a few more months, but hopefully I’ll be better at blogging than I have. Welcome back!
