Last week I pushed a little too hard on one of my runs and it really wore me out. A break for a day or two seemed like a good idea at the time, but two days turned into more like four – not good. I usually up Vine Street, but this morning the high school track sounded good. I’ve walked it a few times with Cami, but no running.
So, this morning I started out walking a mile. The remaining four miles I alternated running and walking quarter miles. It felt really good. The quarter mile runs allowed me to keep a nice stride, knowing there was a rest coming. By the end I felt tired, but not beat up.
There is something that makes me want to push harder and run longer segments. But, I’m going to try to stick with this same program for at least the rest of the week. At some point I will get a stop watch with a lap timer to mark my progress.
