I can’t believe it’s officially fall! It doesn’t exactly feel like fall around here, but we are moving in the right direction. Yesterday, Bobby and I woke up at 6:00 to go run ten miles, and the first few felt great before the sun came up above the trees, then it was pretty rough. I was literally drenched when we got back to my parent’s house. Isn’t this incredibly attractive? Ah, southern humidity, even at the end of September on the first day of “fall!”
Loved not having long hair bugging me on my run!
However, I am really happy with our run. I actually felt good! Shoes did great which is a huge answer to prayer. I did have some hip pain and tightness on both sides and had to stop and stretch a lot, and we will see if it continues as I get used to these shoes. For now, the foam roller and I are still BFF’s.
Overall, this week was a really good one.
Monday: 9 miles running
Tuesday: 20 minutes bike, upper body weights
Wednesday: 3 miles running, upper body weights
Friday: 15 minutes elliptical, upper body weights
Saturday: 10 miles running
Not too shabby. Only thing I would have changed was to add in another run day on Thursday, maybe a short sprint workout. I really want to run 4 times a week. Other than that I am pretty happy, especially with the miles put in and the quality of yesterday’s run. I am getting back on track finally!
QOTD: When was the last time you felt like you had a really good workout? Does it boost your self confidence?
