Wow, it was hot out today! I started with 80 push ups and immediately set out on my run. My first mile pace was a decent 8:18/mile, but due to the heat, I slowed mile over mile finishing with an 8:30/mile average. Not too shabby.
My legs were a bit sore after the first mile, but I attribute that to the two day break. I may do a little on the Lifecycle tomorrow to keep the legs moving. We’ll see.
Today started with just 80 push ups. I was a bit more worn out than I expected, and I just didn’t feel like pushing up to 90. Could I have? Absolutely, but it just wasn’t worth it. I was hoping to hit 100 today, but oh well; it was not to be.
The run itself went exceptionally well, otherwise, I hit a great pace and kept it under 8:34 for each mile for a total of 3.5 miles for an average of 8:27/mile. That run cemented a reverse in my pace trend where I’m not trending faster again.
Now I get to see if I can continue the trend with my next run. I’m hoping to get into the sub-8’s again, but I’m not sure how soon I can do that. It’s been taking a lot out of me to get as fast as I am now. Going sub-8’s will be a lot of work and probably some pain.
