Trot Tally. I find that writing my goals on a Post-It works for me when I run on the treadmill. It keeps me focused and very driven. And it keeps me safe (since I can quickly jot down the numbers instead of texting it on my phone.) I didn't plan on setting the treadmill on incline today, but I did! It kinda puts some stress on the ankle. But I needed that elevation, since this Saturday's Shamrock 5K race is definitely not on a flat terrain. Mile 1 @ 11:19/mile @ 2% incline (Plan: 11:30/mile)
Mile 2 @ 10:21/mile @ 1% incline (Plan: 10:30/mile)
Mile 3 @ 9:31/mile @ 0% incline (Plan: 9:30/mile)
Total: 3 miles in 31:43 minutes.
Thoughts. #1 Poor Keith. His computer crashed and his work is there. He is usually diligent about saving his work on an external harddrive, so I am crossing fingers, toes, and whenever possible, my eyes that he will be able to retrieve those files.
#2: Why do my ankles ache and why do my toes go a little numb when I run? Is it because I tied my shoe laces too tightly? Any suggestions?
#3: When will the UPS truck bring my box of goodies to me?
#4: If I keep up with my schedule, I will hit 100 miles of running this weekend.
Thankful. A good run. A sweet boyfriend. Knees that don't hurt. Fellow bloggers/runners who keep me accountable, inspired, motivated and give me such wonderful advice. Spring break. (not in any order).
How was your Monday workout? I hope it was great!
