I had eaten a small lunch only about an hour before, but I didn't feel like I was still digesting - so I decided that I would go for a quick run. Woo hoo!!!!!
I decided to run my 4 mile neighborhood loop - the maps on RunningAhead had it mapped at 4.43 miles - Garmin says 4.44 miles! It's nice to know that the maps at RA are pretty spot on.
For some reason, I couldn't get my heart rate down to an "easy" level (in the 150s or below) after the first mile. I guess I still have a ways to go before getting back to normal after having to take the time off for being sick.
Overall, my run was 51:09 - an 11:32/mile pace with an average HR of 160.
I also finished up Week 5 of the push up challenge. Well...sort of. You see, as I was doing the last set of the week's push ups, I noticed something odd. When all of the other weeks labeled the push ups Set 1, Set 2, Set 3, etc., this week threw in a few "Sets 1&2", "Sets 3&4", etc. So, I was supposed to do 8 sets of push ups each day, and I only did 5. I thought it was a bit odd that the number of push ups I was doing was decreasing... Anyhow, today I did 115 push ups - 18, 20, 17, 20 and 40! If I had followed the program correctly, there would have been an additional 55 push ups in there - and I likely would not have been able to do 40 in the last set. Next week, I'll be more careful and try to follow the plan.
