Keepin on running

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Been keeping with my running and working out. I’ve completed week 1 of the Podrunner Intervals Gateway to 8K series. Each time I covered around 4 miles, including the warmup & cooldown times. Having the short rests to break up the long run helps my mental fitness too.

I think I’ll keep on with this 8k series, which will push me just shy of 5 milles. That distance has always seem insurmountable to me, so it’s nice to see it becoming a reality. Hopefully my knees and shins and the rest of my legs will let me go that far!

Today I ran two miles as a warm up to doing about 20 minutes of weight lifting. I was thinking about it, and got a kick out of saying that. In January, two miles running would have been the working, and I would have been lucky to have been able to complete it!
