I was successful in
running not sucking for 3 days in a row.
1.8 miles each time. I haven't timed it yet. I'm sure it's a slow pace, but the point is that I haven't walked. Just keep running, just keep running.
I want to thank SR for an great idea in one of her recent posts. She mentioned that she regularly checks in on how she feels. This caught my attention and I think it's helping me. As I run, I just talk to myself about my feet: How is my heel? Am I landing mid-foot?
About my legs: Are they cramping or just burning?
About my breathing: Am I struggling for a real reason, or just b/c I'm not paying attention?
Basically, and all over check-up. It takes my mind off the road, and helps me realize that I can make it, I can survive. If I walk my muscles will tighten and the walk home will be worse/harder than the run home.
Here are a few after shots from my weekend run set:
A little pickle juice after my Friday run. Mmm-mm.
Sunday I went out after church, and after mom headed back home. I was sad to see her go, and thought getting out on the road would clear my mind. It worked, although, I didn't run fast enough to catch her car. (sad face)
I hope to go daily. If I can tackle that 1.8 this week and get my struggle down, I hope to beef it up a little next week so that I can cruise through my next 3.1.
I hope you get out this week too!
BTW, Have you seen my THUNDER?!?! 2nd ROUND!!!!
