He Says: Rest week turns into two

Since I was the back up runner for the relay, I planned to take it easy in the couple of days leading up to the race, so I wouldn’t be burnt out for the run. Well, two days before the run, a fun four day weekend and now a hellish work week has quickly sidelined me from my normal six-day a week workout schedule. Over the last 10 days, I’ve only ran two times and haven’t done any of my normal P90X workouts that I was so religiously following.

The good news is I ran my 3.5 hard run through the surrounding hills at a 7:30 pace which is about a minute under where I began.

Next challenge is the timed mile and see how much I’ve improved over the last 4 months.

I really like recording my results and challenging myself the next time. I love the feeling of setting a new personal best and find myself eager for the next time to do better. The only problem I have with this system is I find myself discouraged when I’m slower than previously.

One thing I can say is I’m pretty consistent when it comes to the 12 ounce curls at the end of the day.
