Day 23 was Monday. And a rest day.
Day 24 was Tuesday. I was so tired. But I made myself do my 3 miles, on the treadmill. At first, I told myself I’d just do a walk. Because I was tired. Once I got on my treadmill and got going for a bit, I upped the speed to a jog. I did my 3 miles at 1 mph less than my comfortable pace. And afterwards, I was so happy. So it wasn’t my usual speed.
Day 25 was a 2 mile run. I did it at 1.2 mph faster than my comfort pace.
Day 26 was Thursday. It was a 4 mile run. It’s been incredible cold here and so everything has been on the treadmill.
Today was Day 27. Cross training or rest. Today, I went through with the cross training. I did 12 minutes with a weighted hula hoop, incline push ups (3 sets), and yoga. This is the first time in the almost 4 weeks of training that I did the cross training on Friday. I usually let my laziness rule and use it as a second rest day.
I know that I need more weight training and more stretching than I have been getting. So I downloaded BodBot. I entered my selections and today was my first instructions. I picked weight loss and muscle building. The incline push ups I did. Those were BodBot’s idea. It also suggested 60 minutes of running. I skipped that. But I will be referring to BodBot for supplemental strength training on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
