I’ve been sticking to my routine!
On Tuesday, I did my favorite HIIT workout on the treadmill. Went at a comfortable speed for my fast 30 seconds: 6.0, and then 5.1 for recovery. I felt really good afterwards – a nice jolt of speed was just enough!
Today, I decided to go outside and run after work instead of hitting the gym again (which means Saturday, I can sleep in and go to the gym for my cross training day!). It was such a beautiful day! It finally cooled down, and it was a nice and breezy 75 degrees during my run. Took it nice and easy and maintained my pace: still a good 10:30, my usual “easy” pace.
I’m not usually an evening, after work runner, but lately, it’s been fitting my schedule better. Since I live a little further, I don’t have to rush during my mornings if I can get my run in at the park right after work!
Can you believe it, tomorrow is Friday again! I felt as if this week went by super fast. I’m excited though: on Saturday, I’ll be having some yummy Korean BBQ with some girlfriends for my early birthday dinner. Next weekend, I’ll finally be visiting my family! I haven’t traveled to see them in a while; the last time I saw them was for my half marathon! I’m so happy to be able to spend my birthday with my family, especially my Mom, who has the same birthday as me! 😀 It’s going to be hard to get a run in, especially after eating so many yummy food, but I’m determined to at least run a mile on the day of my actual birthday. Gotta celebrate another year of being fit!
I hope that everyone’s had a great week! TGIF – we’re almost there!
Till next time,
