Later in the afternoon, I decided to try and get my run in. I did not feel 100%, but it was a head cold - not in my chest - so it's usually safe to run. I started my neighborhood loop that could be a 4.4 mile, 5.5 mile, 6.2 mile or 7.5 miler - depending on where I re-enter my community. Of course I was hoping for the 7 miler, however, after 3 miles I still wasn't feeling that great running feeling. I decided it was going to be the 4.4 mile loop, and I even stopped running and started to walk as soon as I re-entered the community (at around the 4 mile mark). I think the only time I have stopped a run short to walk this year has been when I start to feel injured...I never have lost motivation to run - it was quite a deflating experience.
I finally got my last set of Week 4 push-ups in this morning. Sets of 16, 18, 13, 13 and 19. That's 79 push-ups total!!! And the fact that I was able to do 5 sets of 13 or more push-ups - when four weeks ago I could only muster 11 - is incredible!!!
