I was able to get out for my third run of the week today. In total, that is my fifth workout already this week (with a 60 minute eliptical on the schedule for tomorrow that'll make 6). I decided that this was a good opportunity to see where I am at and how much fitness I've actually lost. So, I ran the same run that Meliss and I ran yesterday. This time, I didn't run all out, but I ran enough to get myself huffing and puffing. I'd say it was about 90% effort. Yesterday was just about 75% effort. When all was said and done, I ran the same run in 26:42, more than 3 minutes faster than yesterday. So, I've definitely lost some fitness. But, I'm still in a place that feels alright.
Run recap- 3.08 miles, 26:42, 8:41 pace
