So I am a little late to report that I completed week 1. Even though, the amounts of each individual run was small (between 2 and 3 miles) I ran 5 times that week. I usually only do 3-4 times a week. I didn't realize that that jump would be a lot!
Today I am tired. I didn't listen to my own advice and respect the REST day. I biked into work yesterday (yes, I labored on labor day!) and it really was too much. I was thinking...eh, the runs weren't that long, but really I should have listened to the wisdom of the REST day! so no longer will I not listen.
So for the first week, I ran 11.89 miles.
Onto week 2....
