These were my redemption push ups after the gym tonight. They were harder than I thought they would be. I had big plans for the gym tonight. Was hoping for some solid repeat miles at around 6:40 pace. Warmed up for a slow mile and then did one mile at 6:40. Felt pretty good. It definitely told me that I have lost a lot but it felt like I could do several more. After a recovery jog for a half mile, I picked it up again but it just didn't feel right. My hamstring felt tight and something just wasn't right. Instead of pushing through it, I decided to play it safe and be smart. I finished my workout on the stair climber and elliptical. I ended with some stretching, foam rolling and then came home and iced after my kid redemption push ups.
I took this picture last night of my girls before bed. This goes along with my last blog : When The Pieces Come Together. Learning To Read and Achieving New Levels as a Runner. So precious for me to find them like this....as a mother and a teacher.
Thanks again for such awesome playlist suggestions for my iPod! You guys are awesome!
