I finished out last week with a 4 mile run on Saturday. So total for last week was 8 miles plus one weight lift. Not too shabby... That was exactly what I wanted for my first week working back into it slowly. No new aches to report.
This week I am planning on getting back into my old routine. I am off to a great start with a 50 minute strength training session today at the gym. It was a good workout and definately a great way to start the week!
I have noticed that my appetite has significantly increased lately. I don't know if that is still a result of my muscles needing fuel to keep repairing themselves or if I have turned into a pig! LOL! No weight gain to report.
I am counting down the days until my next race in March. I hope to set another PR with this race. It is an 8k (roughly 4.9 miles). Also my idol, Deena Kastor, will be at that race and I am super pumped about possibly meeting her but even better, running in the same race as her!
So, great start to my week so far...hopefully I can keep this up!
My blog will follow my running journey up to and through my 1st Marathon... Chicago 2010! You will read about my inspirations, PRs (hopefully!), and of course my struggles. So feel free to share your stories as well!
