I typically do my runs before work but when my alarm went off on Wednesday morning, I used the ol "listen to your body" advice and opted to sleep for an extra hour. I figured I could run on K's treadmill or just hit up the gym in the evening. After breakfast, I told K that I had to run but the thought of doing so seemed so far out of reach. I just felt blah. Being the wonderful 9 yr old that she is, she said she would bike next to me and keep me motivated.
She would zip past me saying things like "Go Carrie go!" and "You are as fast as a cheetah!". Entertaining? Yes. I was proud of her for staying with me the entire 5 miles as last week she wanted nothing to do with her bike!
Monday - lift
Tuesday - 4 mile run
Wednesday - 5 mile run
Thursday - 5.5 mile run, lift
Friday - 4 mile walk
Saturday - Manitou Springs Incline
Sunday - ice these bad boys…
Today was a scheduled 13.1 mile run but after I got in a little argument with the mountain yesterday, I decided it was best to take the day off and run it tomorrow.
P.S. Are you good at listening to your body when it needs a break? Comment below.
