I am going for 4 double days this work week. With a 5k race on Saturday, a 10:30 soccer game and hubbs coming home, the weekend running schedule is a bit up in the air. With my next big race not until early July and my next longish race (10 miles) on May 1st, I haven't offically started a training program. My weeks are simply putting in miles aiming for somewhere between 40 - 50.
The second half of yesterday's run was with my Jr. Biking Sherpa. He always helps me pick up the pace on my longer daily run. 6.5 miles (49:19) I was sweating buckets!
Little Bug-man loved JBS. When JBS got a bit ahead of us on the hills, Little Bug-man would start yelling at him. Or was he yelling at me to run faster? I was able to really push my limits today and work beyond what I felt comfortable giving. Mel had a great post yesterday on just that topic called Your Limits.
After the run was over we all played at the church and then jogged to the goats to see if the new babies were born. Just when I think I have given my all, I amaze myself with how quickly I can recover. That leaves me wondering, 'How much more did I have to give?'
Do you feel ready to run again shortly after your run is over?
Did you find yourself wondering if you had more than what you gave?
