Tough run today

Last night was a speedwork session, 4 x 1200's, it was tough, but I was able to finish it. For the first time ever, I actually got faster each repeat...just like I was supposed to. This morning I got up early so that I could get my run out of the way.
I was tired when I first got up, and I was slightly discouraged because I knew I had to go four miles today. I was dreading it. I managed to knock all four miles out at a pretty good pace but I was so tired afterwards that I couldn't hardly get back up the stairs to take a shower. I just wanted to sit down and rest, but I had to go to work instead.
I'm done with my runs for the week, at least until I get to my race on Saturday. Tomorrow I'll do a little cross training and hopefully convince myself that weight lifting is my friend.
In other news, my business is finally starting to pick back up. I have already seen eight new patients this week, and I know of at least three more that are scheduled already for later this week. I'm so glad that we're getting busier (knock on wood), I was really worrying there for awhile. There is only so long that you can coast along barely breaking even. Hopefully the upward trend continues.

Awesome run!! Tommorow when you are lifting weights, make friends with the weights: The weights will make you stronger...and run faster.

Good luck on the race!
Glad to hear business is booming again. it always made me nervous when we were slow at my last job but apparently working in the city there are a lot more people with injuries - we have a waiting list for patients and need more Therapists desperately.
