I ran last night after work - I was tired and was going to back out, but I did it anyhow. I am glad that I did.
My C25K app was not working right - my music wasn't playing and it kept pausing. So, I went to my MapMyRun App and just said to myself - run as long as you can.
I ran .5 miles and said "okay, I can do this. lets run another .5 mile and then walk". I ran 1 mile and still felt good, so I ran another .4 miles before I hit my brick wall. As many people can attest - Baltimore is quite hilly, so I had a few hills in my workout and the last one killed me. I made it half way up and couldn't go any longer. I was hoping to make it another .1, but my body was screaming.
I walked another mile to cool down and stretch out my body. Last night was quite rough. My muscles felt great, no worries there. However, my joints were not happy with me and when I stood up (after dinner, after watching a little TV) I felt like I ran a marathon.
This morning was a little better - I had chest this morning at the gym. I am going to do some low impact cardio tonight and run tomorrow. I have legs tomorrow at the gym, so that should be interesting.
I am feeling good... t-minus 16 days until my 5k. I know the race day excitement will push me through, but I would love to PR as well. I will need to run an 11.55 mile. Last night I was around a 12.25. I am not sure if this race it will be possible, but I will try.
Making Today Count!
