SaturdayI went 10 miles with the run 10 minutes, walk 1 minute method. It worked pretty well EXCEPT even though I am not aware I am doing it I am changing my gait. Less than 3 miles in, my hip began to bother me. After a half mile or so it stopped but it has continued to bother me since I got home. What a pain! I am improving daily and now something else goes wrong! Maddening.
It was quite cold and I had been planning to also bike. But since I had a hard time even staying warm while running I scratched that idea. This run took me forever with some unpleasant bathroom problems in the middle. I haven't missed that!
It was nice to go farther on my feet and in spite of the cold it was a beautiful day. I must admit the ten miles tired me out. Can I really go another 3 next weekend? I think I can but do I want to? Should I?
There's my mountain. It's great to see it again.
Then on Sunday I decided to bike. I am still using my Hybrid as the roads are muddy and I am a
Same mountain seen from a different point -
after some climbing!
There's still some snow around.
Monday was supposed to be the nicest day this week and I so badly wanted to ride my bike after work. I had very limited time though as I was meeting some out of state friends for dinner after a work meeting. So I got up early and went to the gym to get my run done. Can I say this was a great run, the best run yet!!! I did it on the treadmill and did the continuous 4 + miles at a faster pace than I have been doing with no breaks. And it felt great during and after! Just a week ago this same attempt set me back. Yay! Then after school I left my meeting by 4, raced home, got in 11 gorgeous miles on my road bike with those clipless pedals, didn't feel quite so out of shape and had just a great time! Yay for Mondays some of the time!
