I loved my Monday morning run so much that I did it again on Tuesday. I did a Max Insanity video Monday and Tuesday afternoon. I had planned on an easy day today but changed my mind. I lifted weights in the morning and did mile repeats in the afternoon.
What was I thinking?
I had never done mile repeats before. I had no idea what to expect. Now I know. I only did two of them and if I can maintain that pace for an additional 24.2 miles with no rest in between, I'll almost qualify for Boston. Nothing has ever seemed more impossible.
My body is handling the increased work load quite well. I altered my original schedule to accommodate my new found love of morning runs. Tomorrow (Thursday) will be an actual rest day. I'm sleeping in and doing some kind of Yoga in the afternoon. I'm going eight miles on Friday morning, which means I'll have to get up at 4:30. I'll work out back and biceps on Saturday and call it a week unless I feel like strengthening my core. That'll make 21 miles for the week with a couple of serious fitness workouts and some weights.
The 2 months of Insanity has prepared my body well for the training I'll need to do for the upcoming 26.2 miles of insanity.
