Happy Hump Day!!! So three days into a new routine, and I already feel like it is second nature. I thrive with routine and structure (lame, I know) but having an irregular one the last couple of weeks was kind of wearing on me, and made the start of this week a little rough, I am happy to feel back to normal.
The alarm went off at the usual 5am, and I was wide awake, my legs felt a bit tired, but I don't remember the last time they didn't feel at least a little sluggish. The hardest part of morning running for me is the whole getting up part, so the fact that I was awake so easily made it cake to get out the door this morning.
Today I opted to the the 7 easy, and it ended up being another progression run, and went pretty well.
7 Miles- 1:05:22, average 9:20 pace
Mile 1- 9:48
Mile 2- 9:39
Mile 3- 9:27
Mile 4- 9:20
Mile 5- 9:11
Mile 6- 9:03
Mile 4- 8:53
I felt great after the first 2 miles, it seems to be my obligatory warm-up now, and just felt myself wanting to push more and more with each mile. I probably could have handled the speedwork today if I had done a solid warm-up, but I will remember that for tomorrow!
Off to catch up on my dvr with some fresh baked cookies!
