I recently decided I need to RUN MORE. On Tuesday, I focused more on time than mileage. I ran for an hour, but kept going for a few more minutes to bring myself to 7 miles. It was so hot out and the whole run basically sucked.
The good news about such a sucky run is that the next one just had to be better! So I decided to tackle another 7 miles on Wednesday morning. If at all possible, I wanted to get it done early before it was too stickin' hot out.
The entire run was much more enjoyable. My knee felt strong the entire run and it did not ache the rest of the day. My glutes felt a little tight afterward so I did mucho stretching while watching the ladies cackle on The View.
I ran more miles these past two days than I did all last week! Don't worry, tomorrow I plan to lift upper body so my legs will get a rest. But the day after that, I think I will tackle at least 5 miles!
Operation RUN MORE is in full effect!
Do you get up early and beat the heat, or do you sleep in like I usually do?
