In order to increase my weekly volume while increasing my speed I will be doing a 2 mile run on Wednesday after my strength training. This means I need to be at the gym right when it opens at 5am to be "on time" to work. Ellen joined me even though her right hand was swollen from a kitten scratch. What a trooper!
I was shooting for a sub-15min run but my legs were burning from all the lifting. My legs felt like they usually do on the last mile or 2 of my long runs. Next Wednesday is an upper body workout so I will have more leg strength. I was still able to finish in 15:12.
