Where has the time gone?

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
  • drills/strides
  • 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.

150 Days

Well, I got nothing.  Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time.
