The Legs Are Working!

Ahhh.... it feels SO good to have my legs back and working again! I was still a little sore Monday but at least I could walk, so I decided to attempt week 7 day 3: 25 minute run. I couldn't run the whole time but ran about 20 minutes. I'm sure it was so hard because I hadn't run since Wednesday. 5 days is just way too long for me to go between runs, and in the past when I've gone that long it's been awful. I literally could not run any of those days though because I was soooo crazy sore. I almost fell several times just walking because one of my legs would give out. Crazy!

The husband thinks I shouldn't push it so hard to the point where I can't walk for over 3 days... and while it does seem crazy to be THAT sore, in theory I have to disagree with him. I think I need to push it. I can handle it and it's certainly making my body stronger. It feels great to increase my strength and stamina but I still have sooooo far to go that I think I really need to "push it" and work as hard as I can.

So tomorrow I'll be running for 28 minutes and will really try my hardest to run the entire time, in my neighborhood, hills and all. Thursday I'll do crossfit. Friday I'll run. It's good for me. :)
