Catching Up

Wednesday after work, I did the next run on my training schedule, which was a 60-min easy run.  I ran on the treadmill at 5.7 mph, so the distance came to about 5.65 mi.  This run did feel easier than some I've done lately.  I think my legs were a little less tired from the weight training.

Yesterday morning, I did the next workout from The Master's Hammer and Chisel, which was Total Body Chisel plus 10-Min Ab Chisel.  I upped my weights on a number of the moves, and I think the workout went pretty well.  I burned about 165 calories.

Last night, I had a tennis match with my 3.5 team.  This match went much better than the one on Tuesday - we won four of the five courts!  My partner, Whitney, and I won 6-3, 6-2.  Our opponents gave us some trouble at first, because they lobbed us a lot, and we sort of went along with it by backing up and lobbing back.  We ended up making a lot of errors and feeding them put-away balls.  We changed things around so that I played more at the net and took a lot of the lobs out of the air, and that pretty much finished them off.  Whitney would hit deep baseline shots, which would get them off-balance, and then they'd give me a floater to put away.  Or, we'd take a lob out of the air, which would throw them off, and we'd get the point.  It was a fun match, and kind of nice to see that we are actually better players than some other players for once.  Sometimes after a colossal loss like we had on Tuesday, you start to think you're a horrible player - not really, it's just that those players were REALLY good.

Today is my rest day.  This morning, I did some foam rolling and stretching.
