Today the Annual Independence Road Relay was held in my community. This marked the end of my running challenge. I think my challenge was successful. I did not manage to run/walk everyday but I did get up and get moving more than I did before. I feel stronger and I no longer feel like I’m gonna die in the beginning of my run. My running challenge also helped me settle into a running schedule that is comfortable for me. I will keep the weekly updates to let you know how it’s all going. I also have one more week left in the Find Your Balance in February Challenge. I am really hoping to win the Athleta gift card.
Here is my brand new running schedule:
Sunday: long run
Monday: short/slow recovery run/walk
Tuesday: hills/speed work
Thursday: Short run/walk
Friday: Long run
And my weekly running report.
Sunday: 4 miles, some walking
Monday: Made coconut milk and chickpea burgers.
Tuesday: 1 mike to and from yoga
Wednesday: Pilates class.
Thursday: Yoga at home
Friday: Run 3.05 miles in under 15 minute pace. This is a huge deal! HUGE! Because I felt really good after. Check out my splits on the left.
I am very pleased with this week. I taught yoga 6 days and I super busy. I am blown away by my Friday run. I hope I can keep improving my times.
