Rest day yesterday was a nice break especially since it was Monday. I always found Monday's to be one of the hardest days to workout on so it was nice to not have to force myself. When I got home from work my husband was in casual clothes and asked if I was running today. He almost seemed a little disappointed when I told him it was my "off" day as he was planning to go with me. I was a little surprised as he is not a big fan of just "running" but I appreciated the offer and having him for company.
When I got home we had the steak we planned on having Sunday, caught up on one of our favorite TV show then headed over to the track. We live near a high school that has a great track with a fairly new surface that was meant for running on. It is like running on a cloud compared to concrete sidewalks.
The sun was behind a bunch of angry looking clouds and the windy was blowing pretty hard but it was nice to get out there.
I ran the 3km distance steady which felt really great to do! I kept my heart rate in the prime zone between 160 and 175 going into the high 170s but it felt good and I just kept breathing through my nose to keep my heart rate below 180.
Ever wonder what it looks like when you just run a around a track a bunch of times...yup, you guessed it, it looks like a bunch of scribbles.
