First Week Back

Well we managed to stay on the schedule for the most part. But the part that didn’t stay on the schedule was because we aren’t yet at a place where we can work out 7 days a week. The plan that I outlined in the last post worked out well and going to the gym at 8:30 pm is a fine solution to not having any other time those days to go to the gym. It’s not that crowded and nice after a long day to get an hour to myself. On Tuesday and Thursday I really enjoyed working from home and running to pick Lucy up worked out really well. My Dad met me with the car at the daycare with Calvin and then I was able to just drive home instead of dragging Lucy onto the bus with me all exhausted and sweaty. Plus Dad gets home a little earlier those days.

On Thursday I ran 4 miles and it was the 6th day in a row of working out. I didn’t think the run was going to go that well, but I averaged 8:42 miles with my last mile done in 8:12. Was this a fluke? Probably. Can I really run sub 9 minute miles? Probably not comfortably, but I treated that run like some kind of speed workout and just wanted to see what I could do. Nice to still be able to run fast!

Being back at work is going well so far. Having the flexibility to work from home is definitely a bonus.

Also most of the schedule wouldn’t be possible without the help of my dad. Being able to do my runs as I go pick up Lucy is huge and so as always we thank him for his help!

Today is a short and slow run and tomorrow it’s long at 5 miles. I’m running a 10K in 2 weeks! No real goals, just like having a race on the schedule to keep me going.
