Quick recap from my weekend.
Set out to run a few miles with Buster since we took Thursday off. Started out the first mile at a good 8:30 pace but Buster just seemed gassed. He was already lagging behind me at the 3/4 mark. Finished the first mile then headed back to the house. Pretty much walked the whole way home so second mile was lame. Dropped Buster off and headed out again. Mile 3 & 4 were great at 7:46 pace and 7:28 pace. Very pleased with that run.
Had a little league game and then my charity golf tourney. Way too many activities so no chance to get running in, plus my legs were tired from being out all day.
Plan was to wake up early and hit another trail run. Alarm went off at 430 and my body said "nope lets stay in bed" and this time I listened lol. Legs still felt tired and I didn't want to lumber through a run so opted to rest. Had old man softball last night and my legs felt great. The extra rest really helped.
So last week:
3/30 - 5 miles
3/31 - 2 miles
4/1 - 4 miles
4/2 - 4 miles
4/3 - 0 miles
4/4 - 5 miles
4/5 - 0 miles
Total = 20 miles
April Total = 13 miles
Pretty good start but I'm behind for the month if I'm going to hit 100 miles. Need to knock out some miles tonight.
When do you opt for rest opposed to forcing yourself out for a run? How did your training go last week?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
