Weekly Training Recap!
My weekly average running pace was 6:55 per mile in this weekly training recap. Racing in the Rebel Run 10k helped recharge my brain and body a little bit. Check out the Rebel Run 10k Race Recap! I’ve been forcing myself to get out of bed before the sun is in full effect. Once I get up and out of the house, I typically do several movements and stretches to wake up my body and get my blood flowing. I’ll also do some push ups, lunges and squats. It’s been helpful (I think)!
