Easy 2 miler and Wii Active

I took 2 days off from running after Sunday's 8 miler/hill climb. I started to feel like a bum, not running for two days! I did go to Zumba yesterday, so Tuesday wasn't a complete rest day. I went out for an easy 2 miles this evening after dinner before it got dark. I'm not sure if I was just really feeling good today, or the hill climb on Sunday made me stronger, but I felt awesome running today. I ran the Terrace, which usually wears me out, but I hit every incline feeling super strong and ran a faster pace than usual. I didn't pay much attention to the pace on my Garmin today, just went by how I felt. When I got home, I did a 25 minute workout on the Wii Active. Still loving that game. It had me do bicep curls and shoulder presses, as well as some jumping and lunges. It gives me a good workout. In the morning, I have to get up and go do a 6 mile tempo run before work. I hate hate hate getting up early to workout. I highly value my sleep, lol. But, it will be nice to have it out of the way.
