So I promised my running BFF that I wouldn't start running too hard or fast as I get back into the swing of things, and I may have bent that promise a little today. I did a second run today, after yesterdays first run. Below are the specifics. When I got on the treadmill I told myself I could either up my walking speed from 3.2 to 3.5 or add 5 minutes. I chose to up the speed but when Katrina feel asleep at 18 minutes I took it as a sign and did two more sets. Lillian was already down for her nap.
Monday, July 25: 20 minutes - 15 minutes of 60/90 splits with 4.5/3.2 mph, 2:30 warm up, and 60/90 with 5.5/3.2 mph.
Tuesday, July 26: 25 minutes - 20 minutes of 60/90 splits with 4.5/3.5 mph, 2:30 warm up, and 75/75 with 5.5/3.5 mph.
I feel very proud of my increased performance but will take tomorrow off. I can't overdo it before I see my OB, But how much do you wanna bet I'll try to run 5 or 6 days next week? Maybe even a run outside or attempt my first 5k! I know I'm a stinker, but I can't wait! Running Alice is BACK baby.
Time to charge the Garmin. :)
