Day 4 of Running

file_000-17Yesterday’s post was about Day 3 of Running. Today’s is about Day 4, although I didn’t run them on consecutive days. The magic of pre-posting has reared it’s head. Anyway, here’s my report for Day 4.

It went extremely well. I got up, put on the PT gear and my Bluetooth headphones and hit the pavement. I had a good pace to start with (9:30/mile) and kept my pace at faster than 10:30 for the rest of the run. I also added some more distance and two more minutes. Also, my average heart rate was up by 6 bpm over the past three runs which tells me I pushed it a little harder. Still not super-hard “OMG, I’m out of breath!” kind of pushing, but enough to get a little more out of it. I’m taking today off from running, but I’ll be back at it tomorrow for my fifth run. After that, I think I will lay off the daily run reports. I’m just posting these so people can see how it’s going for me, and how quickly I’m able to progress after not exercising since leaving active duty. All I did was lose weight and then hit the pavement.
