4.3 miles on the treadmill today. Ran for my longest consecutive time, 10 minutes, running for 24 minutes in total. I didn’t run yesterday, only walked. My feet weren’t cooperating, but also I was wearing new shoes. Also, I’ve got three days left for 30DS. I’m excited to finish it and start insanity on Saturday. Fit test. We’ll see haha. I’m determined to do it, which is what’s important. I’m also determined to keep running, despite the heel/ankle problems I’m having. I looked into it, and it’s probably only because I’m new to it and because I run on my forefoot, but have a heavy heel strike when I walk.
I really lacked motivation over the weekend. I was dead tired and spent a lot of time curled up in bed or curled up on the couch under a blanket watching Sherlock. I took one day’s worth of workout and stretched it over two days, so I guess I just look a rest day, without really resting. Anyway, that’s why I splurged and bought myself new shoes. Because nothing makes me pumped to keep working out like the novelty of new things :)
I’m also one day behind on my squats. No big deal, since it’s technically a 20-day challenge. I’m probably just going to do them for the entire month, because I like them.
I’ve also started jumping rope a little bit. Not sure whether I need the extra cardio, but I’m only doing a few minutes of it anyway.
