Today was a day that started off slightly rough. After getting home the night before at 11:00 PM, it was hard to wake up at 5 AM. It really sucked! I was battling coming off the two hour time difference and lack of sleep the night before.
The first day coming to back to work was alright. It was rough at times, but I managed. I also had my first OT session as well. To be completely honest, I was very nervous and scared. I did not know what to expect. I was scared about the pain that I would possibly expect. But the session was not so bad and ended up being a positive experience.
After my OT session, I headed home to get my 30 minute run done with Josh. I was planning an easy run, but my body had something else in mind. I will let the splits speak for themselves.
Mile 1 - 8:56
Mile 2 - 8:39
Mile 3 - 8:36
Mile 0.43 - 3:49 (8:46/mi)
Avg Pace - 8:44/mi
I could not believe that I accomplish this effort period. I found that I blew myself completely away. I just hope to keep this pace up especially with my 12 mile run coming up on Saturday. I would love to keep this pace. It felt great. My legs just kept going and going.
Tommorow - 35 minute EZ (yes, I will do right this time!)
