Monday April 8: 5 miles (52:34, 10:31 avg pace) plus 25 x 4 push ups....SPLITS: 11:09, 10:59, 10:33, 10:09, 9:43
Aren't them some purty splits?
I started out nice and slow the first couple miles just to make sure my feet were up for it. They felt 'cautious' for awhile but no real pain, I just knew to take it slow. After the 2nd mile I felt good enough to push the pace JUST a wee bit. That last mile was PERFECTION. Even ran almost the last 2 tenths uphill!
I ran on flat surfaces in my 'hood as the downhills seem to make those cheeky bones a little feisty. There's not a very large area of flat so I did a lot of loops and out and backs and so on and so forth. These type of runs are hard mentally for me. I felt a little like a caged animal. But I'll take being a caged animal to being a hamster in a wheel (which is what the 'mill feels like to me!)
This is the first time I've done 4 sets of 25 push ups in the last 2 weeks, too. Felt great!
So far I'm track for the week! =)
