After having a terrific run/yoga combo on Saturday, the run on Monday sucked.
I can't belief this is all I walked. At several points, I actually just thought I will give up and walk the rest of the way home. I couldn't get my cadence right to save my life. I kept starting and stopping until I was so close to home, I thought what the heck. I was able to pull out the last three minutes to finish.
I'm glad I didn't give up, but this run side-tracked me the rest of the week. I let work become the priority or the excuse so much that I didn't even strength train or cross train except for a measly 20 minutes on the bike trainer.
I did get up on run Saturday morning before hubby left for work. He had to work both days this weekend, so I knew this was my shot. And so glad I went. The next neighborhood over was having a yard sale, and it happened this was the weekend I decided I needed a different route.
Much better. Had to dodge a number of people and cars but hopefully this slowed me down a bit. I don't know where this need to be faster has come from. I try to slow myself up so I can focus on the cadence, but it's not working so well.
There's always this week.
The plan is:
Monday - Strength training
Tuesday - Run 3 miles
Wednesday - Strength train, 20' on bike trainer
Thursday - Run 3 miles
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Run 4 miles
