The last 4 days have pretty much been a bust aside from kicking some serious butt at a wii dance party! I don’t think I ever shared exactly how I hurt my arm. I think it was a combo of too much of a good thing arm work out+yoga+practicing for the wii dance party = Tiff’s arm really hurts for 3 days. Today my arm feels great in fact….I ran 2 miles! For a long distance runner, 2 miles is nothing. I typically try to run 3-5 miles for a short distance. But with the injury and all I felt like 2 was a good starting point.
I don’t think I shared that I am kind of in training for a 5k. I have a few races in mind this year. The first being the “Davis Stampede”. It’s held every year on the first Sunday in February. 2 years ago I ran the half marathon distance. It was a PR of about 2hrs and 29 minutes. It was when I was first getting into running and just wanted to finish. This year is all about the PR! I feel like in my running career/path etc this is the time to really go for it. I mean I’m 28 I’m not getting any younger! Goal for this upcoming 5k get it done in under 30 minutes. I am a typical 12 min/mile runner. (you can call me a jogger if you want, it’s all just semantics!) This time will be challenging. Today I ran the 2 miles in 22:33. I actually timed it, I feel so official. That’s the time to beat on my next run. The 2 mile loop does include a hill. And I think the davis stampede is relatively flat, so I think that’s perfect!
Plans for the rest of the week…
Wednesday-easy 3 mile run
Thursday-2 mile tempo run
Friday-easy 5 mile run
I figured if I make it an easy running week I can give my arm/shoulder a break. And ome back to P90X with a vengence!
Time to shower and relax for a few hours before I’m off to work.
