Running Ahead

Yesterday I redeemed Saturday's tough run. I ran for 27:45 without stopping! (well, technically, I had to stop and go back for the cap to my water bottle that I dropped. . . but that doesn't really count.)

It was relatively easy. My legs didn't act up too much, following extensive and very painful massage on Sunday night to try and loosen up the tissue in my calves/shins.

Today, I ran for 31:35 without stopping. I hit the 3 mile mark!

"What on earth is she doing?" you might be asking. "Has she totally gone off plan?"

Yes and no. I've accelerated the plan. Which, by the way, is not something the Couch to 5k plan recommends. I'm working with a friend who's training for a run and I'm trying to use her training plan. This means I'm running 5 days a week, with long runs on Saturdays.

Tomorrow will be my 3rd run this week. I'm making history here, folks! 3 runs in by Wednesday?? Impossible! But true!

OK. Off to go and massage my legs. . .
