It's week 5!

Ok, Jamie and Grace, here we go:

Week 5 and 6: Recovery

Your body is probably pretty tired from the last month of running. These next two weeks are about allowing your body to recover, so that it can continue to build. In our house analogy, I suppose we are letting the cement dry. These two weeks should be about staying hydrated (lots of water), trying to eat the right foods and letting your achy muscles have some rest (but not too much). You may also want to take some time to read more about running.

Monday- rest
Tuesday- 1 mile
Wednesday- rest
Thursday- 1.5 miles
Friday- rest
Satruday/Sunday- rest one day/1 mile the next

Sounds very doable, eh?

Jamie, I really enjoyed reading your running story about your "cheerleaders." How cute! Hope you all have a great week!

Psalm 130
Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
Lord, here my voice: let thine ear be attentive
to the voice of my supplications.
If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities,
O Lord, who shall stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee,
that thou mayest be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait,
and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that
watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch
for the morning.
Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD
there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Ps. Grannybear's birthday is tomorrow! :)

This is terrific. Mentally, I think I'm ready to up it to a harder pace/amount now, but physically, I think I'm still getting used to this. A rest week is such a great idea to avoid my oh so common burn-out syndrome. :)
Have a great week running! Very doable. Good Psalm and Happy almost Birthday, Sarah's Grannybear. :)

1.5... you ready to do this? Thanks for your post on my blog this morning. You're so fun. Wish I could run with you on our TX trip, but I doubt it will work out. I'll check and see though. :)

I didn't run yesterday... =( I was sooo tired. I think it's because I didn't have a lunch which equaled NO energy. And since I'm confessing... instead of running, I made cookies.

I'll try and catch up.
