Today started off with another 90 push ups. They were comfortable, quick, and felt good. I could have pushed out 10 more to reach 100, but I figure I’d save that for another day. There’s no need to rush things and risk injury or soreness.
As for the running, the speed is coming back. After the bloody heel incident last week, I was a little scared to really run hard today, but I did anyway, and I’m glad I did. I’m not back to sub-8’s yet, but I’m getting closer. I pushed myself throughout all three and a half miles, and my last half was actually my fastest pace! I felt great after the run, but more importantly, my left gluteus maximus seems to be healing well. I think the fish oil I’ve been taking may be helping here. I’ll keep monitoring it and will likely post something about it on my main blog.
