Back up to 3/1 x 5 today. Those 3 minutes seem to be getting shorter :) I like that. Last week when I was running for 2 minutes I would look at my watch with 25 seconds left almost every interval. Today, running for 3 minutes, I hardly looked at my watch at all while running. Legs felt pretty good too.
Another rest day and day #14 of my running program. 2 weeks down and 1 week to go. Wow, I can't believe it. I'm feeling really good about a lot of things. The fact that I'm running again. The fact that I'm following a program and sticking with it. And the fact that I'm starting to feel like an athlete again.
Today I did 2/1 x 8. These were pretty easy. I like that :)
Today was 3/1 x 5. Not too tough.
Today was a rest day.
Today was 2/1 x 6. This felt absolutely easy. I love it, I can feel my legs getting stronger.
Today was 3/1 x 4 then 1/1 x 4. Legs were absolutely dead from yesterday but I did it and I feel awesome.
Today was back to running and I'm very proud of myself for getting back on the horse so to speak. Today was 2/1 x 6. Easy day. In the afternoon I took the dogs on their long walks. I was out for 2 hours with them.
An unscheduled rest day today. We went out with Lori and Hai Cha last night and I ended up drinking way too many beers and a margarita. Needless to say this morning I felt like crap. There is no running today.
Today was a rest day. I ended up getting involved in my projects pretty early so I didn't do anything today. :(
Another run today. Same as yesterday; 2/1 x 5 then 1/1 x 5. Felt strong in the beginning but by the last 2 intervals I was really feeling my legs. My thighs specifically. They are getting stronger - yeah!!!!
Today we upped it slightly. I did 2 min run/1 min walk x 5 then 1 min run/1 min walk x 5. Felt pretty good. I got new shoes yesterday and that has made all the difference in the world.
Today was a running rest day so I did my interval training on the elliptical with strength moves in between the intervals. It was absolutely brutal but I made it all the way. Yea me!!!!
Ran again today. I'm following a program that will have me running 30 minutes in 3 weeks. It's slow and I need that to get back into the routine and habit of running. Today was 1 min run/1 min walk x 10 with 5 minutes warm-up and cool-down. It was a little painful today. The shoes are worn and the knee bothered me a little. Time to buy new shoes.
Okay, I'm back. I have decided that I want to run. I want to do the North Shore Marathon in May 2011 and running is what I really like doing. So I'm back.....
Starting slow. Today I did 1 min run/2 min walk x 10 with a 5 minute warm-up and cool-down. It was tough because I am heavy but I did it and felt like a rock star.
