We are in the homestretch for the first semester. It is finals week. I have tons of grading and then I start back at my classes tomorrow. I can't say that I am excited. I feel like I need a break. I wish I wasn't teaching this semester at State, but it helps a lot with the tuition. Oh well, it will get done. It always does, one way or another.
Treadmill Run (40:50)
ran 4 miles ( 10:13 min/mile pace)
HR monitor: Total calories burned (415 cal)
My quads are pretty tired. I wanted like hell to stop at 2 or 3 miles, but my knee was fine and I need to keep my weekly miles up so I kept going. I am taking a rest day tomorrow and I reduced my Thursday run to 5 miles since I have to do two long runs on Saturday. I am doing 10 miles in the morning and then 5 miles in the afternoon. A coach recommended this since I am increasing my mileage pretty quickly.
