So, I’m feeling really good about where I’m at with current training. To be honest, I thought it would be a LOT harder for me to get back into running shape after such a long layoff. But it seems that my legs and cardio have quickly remembered what it was like to do regular runs throughout the week.
Yesterday, I put in a solid 3 mile run at about a 10 minute pace. I consider that a big win. Also, I practically ran a 5K and have 2 weeks left until the race. So, knock-on-wood, I’m in a good place. However, I repeatedly tell myself not to push too much as not to re-injure myself and to build strength back in my ankle.
I’m down an additional 2 pounds this week so I’m sitting right around 204 lbs. My goal is 200 by race day.
Anyways, here’s this week’s run log.
- Monday: 22 mins
- Tuesday: Rest
- Wednesday: 25 mins
- Thursday: Rest
- Friday: Rest
- Saturday: 3 miles
- Sunday: Rest
Two weeks to go.
