My new kicks were definitely a good purchase. My workout yesterday was hard, leaving me with a feeling of complete exhaustion. I would rather end a workout feeling exhausted, than hurt. So I was happy with it.
This morning I went to the gym with a girlfriend. A girlfriend of mine who doesn't really run regularly wanted to try the Galloway way. She wanted me to do a little coaching, and it was one of those do as I say, not as I do type coaching (It took me forever to realize how benificial this is, and just started it myself). Well, she attempted the run 2/walk 1 method and ended up doing a little over 3 miles; the most she has ever run. I was so excited for her! My date with the thrillmill was a planned 5K time trial. I haven't ran that distance in a long time. I shouldn't have included my 5 minute warm-up walk as it lengthened my total time, but I was pleased with the overall results considering this.
As much as I don't want to, I will be heading to the school this afternoon for a couple hours. 3 hours max. I have three things I need to do for the week, and then I am spending the rest of the day watching football. I have my first meeting tomorrow, and want to be as prepared as possible. Monday and Wednesday will be longer days, as I don't want to put in any hours next weekend. We'll see how it turns out.
3.5 miles run
I am kind of excited as the weather is supposed to be in the 70's all week. Yes! last week it was in the 50's ... very chilly in the am and pm. Enjoy your Sunday, y'all!
