I have been avoiding speed for a while now because I know its important to build up your base mileage first. Yesterday I incorporated some speed because I have been running more consistently and had a good yoga session. I wasn’t going light speed but it was fast for me right now.

Even better than including speed, I got up this morning and RAN with my friend Sarah! It’s the first time I’ve had a morning run before work in a long time! The next couple of weeks are going to be hectic at work and if I don’t get my run done early I won’t be able to. I knew making plans with Sarah would help me be even more dedicated to run since I had bailed on her one other morning when I just couldn’t get out of bed.

After our run, Sarah showed me some exercises she does after. I could really feel the stretches and am looking forward to incorporating them!
Once I got to work, I indulged with a cup of home (work) brewed coffee and a bagel with jelly and Laughing Cow light swiss. Dave thinks this is a strange combo, but I love it!
Time to get back to the grind!
How was your first day back to work?
