This weeks miles have all been fairly easy. I gave myself a pass because of last weeks marathon.
Sunday: 6 miles, 3 easy, 3 sprints
Saturday: 13.6 miles.
Friday: 9 miles… 1:26 minutes.
Thursday: 7 miles in 52 minutes.
Wednesday: 7 miles in 56 minutes.
Monday & Tuesday:Off.
Saturday’s long run was terrible. There were about 86 million times that I wanted to quit. I was fine for the first 7 miles, and then all of a sudden, a wave of exhaustion came over me. I did not want to keep going. I really just wanted lunch and a shower, and the bathroom. Ugh. It was not good.
Sunday was a new day. I woke up very refreshed and more than excited to smash Saturdays crappy run right in its crappy face. Negative splits for each mile: 8:10, 8:05, 7:41, 6:51, 6:50, 6:30. There is nothing like a GREAT run to wipe out the memory of the bad one!
I plan to take my running outside tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed it will be at least 20? A girl can dream… I am REALLY fed up with this cold weather nonsense. Winter:..I officially rescind your invitation. Get GONE.
I got to spend a lot of time this weekend with my favorite gal. My stepdaughter is such a funny little girl, and I truly cherish our alone time together. There are about 15 different reasons why we haven’t been able to have a mama/daughter date In a while, so I really took advantage of today.
We started with the Lego movie (go see it, it was great)
This week, I will be focusing on better training. After a week of nearly all easy runs, I’m ready to get moving, and faster. I’m just going to say it. I like the days when I run fast- it makes me feel a little like a superhero.
I saw this today and it made me smile:
Have a great start to your week!
Anybody see Lego Movie!
Ever had a terrible long run?
Run Free, Run Strong!
