Whoa, I'm getting to be a bad blogger. Sorry!!! School is hectic. I do want to keep blogging but... we'll see how it goes.
I STILL have not done strength training. It's now been, uhh... 3 weeks? Yikes. I really super duper promise I'm going to try to start that this week. Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays - SOME sort of strength.
I have been sticking relatively closely with my running plan (see below). Last week we did a tempo run, with the goal of running 9:30 pace for 2 miles - and managed to keep them around 9:45. Not perfect, but given how exhausted I was that morning, I'm proud of myself. We also ran 9 miles this weekend, and it felt REALLY good. The last 1.5 miles my knees started to be a bit sore, but otherwise it was great!
Then, the most GLORIOUS THING EVER happened on Monday.
Wish I had more to say buuuuuut it's past my bedtime! Ciao blogland :)
