I can’t believe it’s been a MONTH since I’ve posted. As I look back on my training calendar, I guess not much has happened. Life kind of got in the way a little bit. I have missed 2-3 days of mostly cross training each of the past 4 weeks. I know. Not good. I don’t really have a good excuse. It has been a STRUGGLE getting out of the bed early in the morning. The struggle is real, folks. The struggle is real.
So anyway… There is a bright spot in my training. I’ve noticed that I am getting a teeny weeny bit faster on my long runs. Yay! I’ll take that!
The drill/pace run days are still hard. Today’s workout was:
- jog .75 miles easy, light stretch
- run 30 minutes at a ‘comfortably hard’ pace
- run .75 miles easy, good stretch
For the first 20 minutes, I was thinking that I was running too fast but I could talk so maybe not. Starting at about 25 minutes, I was tired and had to really try hard to regulate my breathing. I don’t know if I was going too fast or not but I was really tired after the 30 minutes.
I got some funky looking running pants. They are black with green, yellow and grey random stripes. I haven’t gotten up the nerve to run in them, yet! I feel like I need to do something spectacular in them. Maybe I’ll wear them for my long run this week, which, by the way, is 6 miles. I am trying hard to not think about the day when a 6 miler was just a middle of the week sort of ‘quick’ run…
I am inching closer and closer, though.
Well, I got nothing. Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time.
