I decided to really take it easy, run a bit slower than usual and work on endurance instead of speed. My goal was to run 3.5 miles in 40 minutes with minimal walk breaks. I ended up stopping to walk three times, all on serious uphills, and each time only for about 1-2 minutes. In the end, I felt great, and finished in 39:40 - right at my goal. I was really pleased!
I am heading out tomorrow morning to run another 3.5 and I hope to feel just as good. Maybe tomorrow ... I'll blog about my attempt at a bike ride the other day! It was pretty hilarious. Happy almost-weekend! Anyone have anything fun planned? My mom and my grandma are coming into town tomorrow for the weekend and I am really looking forward to it. We don't have much planned, but I think it will be a fun time!
