OK, now week 4 is done!
I decided to go out for a run today because the weather was really nice and the forecast is calling for rain the next 4 days. After my 11 miles yesterday I was thinking maybe 2 or 3 miles. Around 1 3/4 miles I thought, phew, I'll be doing good to get in 2 miles. But, then I pushed through and figured I'd go for 3. At mile 3 I was feeling really good so decided to do 4. At mile 4 I felt great and thought about continuing on, but wisdom told me I better not push it. Funny thing is I was exhausted before I started, really low on energy and now I'm feeling pretty good. I've run 70 miles in my first 4 weeks which is 11 miles more than my plan! I'm feeling pretty good about how I'm doing on my training.... just need to work on my speed and strength training. The rain in the forecast will be good for that - it's gonna force me to the gym!
