I had said I wasn’t going to start tempo or speed workouts until August, but I just couldn’t help myself! I did just a bit – just enough to get me wanting more! The husband has had a crazy work schedule this week (working 8pm-3am, then all day, then again the following night waking up to go in at 2am to stay all day – yes, crazy!) and he did another of those shifts last night of going in at 1:30am and was due home around 9am. It would be too hot at that point to run outside, plus I knew he needed a nap. So today’s 7 mile run is planned for tomorrow and I went to the gym to get in a 40 min elliptical workout. Well, the treadmills were calling my name when I finished! So I jumped on for a quick 2 mile run – starting normal and dropping done to 6:45 pace. I hadn’t run that fast since June, and it felt oh so good! It also felt like oh wow I have some work to do!
My training plan is set, starting August 12. So I may throw in a bit more of things like today until then, just to keep waking up my legs!
