Today is a scheduled rest day. No feeling guilty as I slothfully laid in bed until 6:35am this morning.
This week I ran on Monday and Tuesday mornings, and I'm planning to wake up extra early tomorrow morning and hit the treadmill before meeting an old friend at Starbucks at 7am. (I don't really like Starbucks, but it's close, it's quick and it's open at 7am...). To finish out the week, I'll likely rest again on Friday and do a long run on Saturday morning.
It's funny to look back at the beginning of the year when I wondered whether my body would be able to take running 4 days a week (which meant I would not have a rest day after each run). My big concern was whether I would get injured by upping the number of runs from at-most-3 to at-least-4. Eleven full months later, I can confidently say that running on consecutive days has not caused me any injuries.
I did my push-ups this morning. Day two of the third column of Week 3: sets of 20, 25, 15, 15 and 19 (the last set was supposed to be at least 25, but I couldn't muster out more than 19).A total of 94 push-ups in all. Whoa! Each set has more push-up than I was able to do "to exhaustion" when I started. Plus, the second set of 25 is more than I was able to do "to exhaustion" two weeks ago. Amazing!!
