My friend was visiting the last two days and we were pretty lazy this weekend, but we had so much fun hanging out. I’m always active, and taking a day off was nice.
Before I started running today I did some dynamic exercises, single-legged squats with a 10 lb weight, single legged squats with a resistance band, and lunges. Then I walked to the track and ran a bit just to keep good form in my mind. I am really loving the track. The bounce is perfect!!
It’s nice to see I can run faster on shorter distances. Over time I will get my speed back.
After two laps warming up I kicked off my shoes!! FUN FUN!
Running barefoot felt great. It was still hard, but easier than the last time. My calves were not as hard as rocks and it felt a bit more natural this time.
Here is my plan for the rest of the week:
Monday: Run 3 miles (8:30 pace)
Tuesday: Weights and walking
Thursday: 6.25 miles of running (10 min place)
Friday: Weights and walking
Saturday: Run 3 miles (8:30 pace)
- How’s your running going?
- How many days a week do you run?
