Second cardio workout

I was supposed to run yesterday, as I’m trying to do this cardio thing three times a week for starters, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but as circumstances would have it, I didn’t get home until late yesterday and was too tired. So I am back from my second run this week and this one felt a little better, although I slowed my pace some. I completed the entire mile circuit and didn’t have to stop. In fact, I sprinted the last leg, as is my wont. No muscle pain in my quads which is good. My legs have been pretty sore since I ran on Monday, but today they were significantly better.

My right shoulder is no longer sore so I think I’m going to start up on the pushups again tonight, after about a week or so of not doing them.

Overall, I think I’ve still got a long way to go as far as cardio goes. I was supposed to run 3 times this week and I did it twice. (I’m heading up to NYC tomorrow evening and won’t have a chance to run.) Hopefully I can keep it up, and do better next week.
