WEEKLY RUN REPORT
So, this was my 2nd week of running with my online coach, and I do feel like I'm making some progress. More than I was making on my own anyway!
note: the coach suggested I aim for negative splits in my maintenance runs.
Monday - Maintenance run. 5 mi total. Splits: 10:16, 9:58, 9:56, 9:23, 9:09, average 9:45/mi. 52F (miracle). 5 min leg strengthening routine.
Tuesday - REST

Yep, this new schedule has more rest than I used to take. Quite honestly . . . I kind of love it! I think I want to make 2 days completely off per week my new normal. It's actually really nice not to get up ridiculously early every single day. And once I have my day-off-per-week I may get rid of another early morning . . . we'll see.
