Yesterday evening, I had originally intended to go to a boxing class. However, it was really cold out, so by the time I got home, I didn't feel like rushing to get ready and then hurrying back out into the cold and traffic. So I decided to stay home and do a run, and then do cardio tennis the next day.
I ran on the treadmill at 5.7 mph for 50 minutes, so the distance came to 4.7 mi. This run just felt hard again. I had been doing so well with my easy runs, but now my heart rate is up quite a bit for them and they just aren't easy. Maybe my legs are sore and tired from The Master's Hammer and Chisel. I'm wondering if I'm starting to get anemic again - I'm paranoid about that, so I'm going to up my iron supplements for awhile. I also have a sneaking suspicion that my old treadmill was falling apart so much that I was actually running on a decline because the supports were failing - I think I would've felt that in my quads, though. So I don't know what's going on, but it's depressing.
This morning, I did the next Hammer and Chisel workout, which was Chisel Cardio. This is an OK workout - not my favorite, but it's not too bad. I upped my reps on a few moves. I also burned many more calories than when I did it the first time - about 190 calories compared to just over 100 or so previously. I'm not sure why that was.
