Annie and I woke up early this morning to try and beat the Texas heat! She is following a 1/2 Marathon Training plan that she found in Runner's World and according to the plan she is to do a 6 mile run at a "Conversational Pace". I have decided to try and add a few more miles into each week so I decided to join her. This would also be an opportunity to run in my aerobic zone and continue to build a solid base. We had a real nice run that lasted a little over an hour. According to my Garmin I burned 745 calories. Towards the end it was HOT and at this point I remembered why I have been running indoors on the treadmill! The last 1/2 mile I tweaked my right knee. Sitting hear with an ice pack on it and it already seems to be feeling better.
We came home and had a good protein filled breakfast. Annie went off to work and I headed off to the gym to do Chest, Back, and ARX. I took two scoops of NO Xplode and ripped through the workouts with Tony and the kids! My ARX session was a little sluggish as I was loosing some steam right after I finished the "Heels to the Heavens".
Good, solid workouts today. I am going to try and add in some more double days to get in some more running.
Thanks for Reading and Here We Go Steelers!
