Run on treadmill
5 minute warm up
22 minutes run, 1 minute walk and 22 minutes run (45 minutes)
5 minute cool down
55 minutes and the treadmill said I did 6k which we already established is wrong.
If I look back at Week 10: session 3 on March 5th I ran 7.64km according to Garmin, I'd like to think that I would have run about the same km today.
Todays run went alright, my shins were hurting the whole time and the last 10 minutes were really hard. Honestly I did really crapy with my eating this afternoon... I had a slice of cake and it was loaded with sugar. I know I really should know better, that certainly wasn't fuel for my run and I felt it the whole way... BLAH!!
As you can tell I didn't run Saturday and there was also no Couch-to-5K run on Friday with Girls since it was snowing. We did run on Sunday and it was an easy 3.75km jog for me.
I've been really stepping it up on my stretching with all this running, once I get home from my run I always do about 20minutes of Yoga/running stretches. I also started icing my shins at night, every night!! My shins always feel much better... I just hope that I don't have to deal with this too much longer. I just want to run pain free, is that too much to ask for?
This week there will be running EVERYDAY! This the MOST running I have ever done... I'm a little worried that I wont be able to keep it up.
Tuesday, Friday & Sunday Couch-to-5k with the girls.
Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday Week 11 of my running program... there will be no rest day until Thursday April 22nd.
Wish me luck!
Have you ever committed to running with friends and then realized that perhaps you've bitten off more then you can chew and it's affecting your training?
