On to the business. Because it's been so beauty in Chicago, I've put Insanity on hold. It should be a sin to waste this weather by working out inside. I've gone out for runs four times in the past five days, all on the short side, distance wise. The weather may be beautiful, but it's still dark by 5 p.m., so that's a little bit of a challenge.
I had a great run Sunday with negative splits for 4.4 miles, and today, I did a quick 5k in 27 minutes. I warmed up for the first mile, then ran as fast as I could maintain for one mile, which turned out to be 8:07. On Sunday, I attempted the same thing, but could only finish .85 miles at a 7:45 pace. Either way, my 8:07 mile is my fastest ever. I think I ran an 8:15 mile in high school ... 10ish years ago. I rounded out today with a bit of strength and stretching.
It's supposed to get crappy again later this week, so I'll just pick up where I left off on Insanity. This isn't exactly what they have in mind schedule-wise, but I figure it all evens out since I'm burning calories and getting my heart rate up.
The dog just found some food he foraged away in his cage, so I'm off to deal with the inevitable puking episode that will follow.
