Weigh in this morning and I am down 2 lbs. (woo-hoo!)
Our run this morning was harder because we ran two hours later and it felt hot! Again we ran 4:1 with a 3:1 thrown in the middle.
Total distance: 2.5 miles
First mile time: 11:52 (how on earth did I do that?!)
Two miles average: 12:10/mile.
Mentally: I agreed with K that we would keep running our last lap till we got to our destination, thinking that I would be running just a little over 4 minutes. I ran over 6 minutes that final lap! I can't believe that I ran 6 minutes without stopping, let alone ran that long at the end of our run when I was tired out. K said it was just part of the mental game of setting visual goals rather than relying on the clock.
My times today are better than yesterday. I went into this run thinking it would be harder after pushing yesterday. I'm surprised at the results. No pain in my calves and my ankles and feet weren't as tired as they have been. I have been sure to get in my water requirements and have been taking supplements (Bio 35 and Pro-Cal, and Triple Flex. I am not sure they they are making any difference but I like to think so.)
