Because I'm behind where I want to be in terms of scheduling, I went to the gym after work Thursday night (it's 1:40 AM on Friday morning, and I've been back from the gym for about 10 minutes). Tonight was tough, probably in part because I'm still dealing with some respiratory crud. I had a 25-minute run on the slate for tonight, and after 18 minutes I was sure I was going to be done, but I managed to stick it out until the end. That in itself is a huge accomplishment for me because usually if I feel like maybe my body wants me to stop because it's tired, I'll go ahead and stop (pain is something else...if I'm feeling pain, I'll stop and feel justified in doing so).
Here's how my gerbil belting went tonight:
0.00-5.00 - 3.6 mph
5.00-28.00 - 5.0 mph
28.00-29.00 - 5.5 mph
29.00-30.00 - 5.0 mph
30.00-35.00 - 3.6 mph
I hit a total distance of 2.68 miles for a 13:03 mile pace. My goal for Saturday is to be basically in this neighborhood for distance.
How is your week of activity going?
