This weeks miles were once again sponsored by Frank from his wonderful support for 26.2 with DONNA during my Miles for Dollars campaign. I finished up Frank's miles this week (with a couple of bonus miles for good measure).
Monday: I'm concentrating on having two rest days and at least one cross training day a week.
Tuesday: I woke up excited to run. Unfortunately, I run after work, so I had to wait all day. But I did celebrate my excitement and ability to run by wearing compression socks to work. I kind of felt like super man with them on under my work clothes, ready to go for a run at any second.
Actual: 4 miles running (9:33/mile pace)
Actual: 30 minutes yoga; foam rolling
My hair has a life of its own at this point.Thursday: Back to the treadmill for another 4 miler. I'm having no pain during runs which is very encouraging and I am trying to keep on top of my recovery activities. Compression is my friend!
Actual: 4 miles running (9:26/mile pace)
Friday: Back to the regular routine of rest on Friday. I do like relaxing on Fridays after a busy week! It's a reward for making it through.
Saturday: First outdoor run of the year! Took all the way until the last day of January, but I headed out join a group for a slow 4 miler. Obviously I haven't been doing a lot of winter running as I was a bit underdressed for the cool weather (I originally left the house without gloves or a coat). I was so happy to be running outside, I didn't let it bother me.
Actual: 4 miles running (9:45/mile pace)
Half asleep rocking my new Atlanta Track Club hat. 31 isn't bad if you dress for it. Oops.Sunday: It was windy and rainy, so I headed indoors. I also wanted to keep it flat after yesterday's hilly run (it's almost impossible to have a non-hilly run in this city). Legs felt good, but I'm starting to want to push the pace. Need to find new ways to occupy myself on the treadmill. Recommendations?
Actual: 4 miles running (9:25/mile pace)
