Post-Run Report: April 15, 2017


Today was a hot afternoon, and I wasn’t really in the mood to run, but once again, I just pushed through it and got it done. 20 minutes or so before the run, I ate the three dried apricots which seems to help by giving me energy during my runs. I started with 80 easy push ups and hit the deck at a good clip. I felt pretty okay, and I pushed it despite the heat. I still have a bit of pain in my left glute, so I wasn’t trying to push too hard, but I am worried about it becoming aggravated at the APFT when I do my sit ups prior to my run. I’m hoping it will be okay.

After the first mile, I felt really good. I thought I might be able to do 4 miles. After the second mile was done, I knew I was only going to hit 3. The heat was getting to me, and my legs were getting sore. I pushed through it and finished with a decent pace; my second-best.

While this run wasn’t as epic as the run before it, I’m happy with it. I will have a longer an slower run on Monday followed with a shorter run on Wednesday which will be my last run for the week until my APFT on Saturday when I will run all-out for two miles. I’m hoping to set a personal best record.
