I ran 4 miles today and dare I say, it was easy? Ok, maybe not easy, but definitely easier. After Wednesday's workout of only 3 miles, where my legs felt like they were being pulled out of their sockets and roasted over an open fire, this was a breeze. No problems with warm up, no problems with breathing (a recurring problem I have been dealing with) and no problem with my back. Nice way to start the day.
On top of that, I went faster and ran part of it at a 1% incline. It's amazing how the body can do so poorly one day, and so well the next. I like the "doing well" days much better.
Later today I'll probably hit a trail close to work and do a nice walk at lunch - a good way to get a break in during the day.
Tomorrow is a long day where I plan to be outside ALL DAY!! The weather is suppose to be gorgeous and I fully intend to enjoy every little moment of sunshine. I have a fun partner (Hi Tori!) who is planning on joining me for the hike in the afternoon, the company will be nice.
Have a great day everyone!
