35 mins recovery

image

Tired legs so a 35 min run at “enjoy the run” pace. I thought about going longer but nope.

70 mins in the carefree zone

Reasons why I like running for time

  • the run is more enjoyable
  • my focus is on lasting for the set time
  • pace and breathing are easily controlled
  • less strain on the body to perform harder
  • I feel like it’s better for endurance training

70 mins steady

Running for time is beginning to grow on me.Β 

60 mins focusing on form

Nice easy pace for 60 mins. I noticed that I may be shifting my weight to my left leg too much, I felt some pain after about 40 mins of running. Looks like I need to do some hip strengthening exercises and figure out how to balance out my weight during long runs.

5k at race pace I think

I’ve been feeling a bit lazy here lately or maybe it just seems that way because I prefer to hit the elliptical up on warm days. Whatever the case I didn’t want to run long today so I just decided to run harder than usual and this is the result. I’d like to recommend all runners read the Mind+Body section of Runners World this month, it’s about runners that run for the love of it….I fit in that category

The GIF below describes how I felt today but replace chocolate with CHERRIES cuz I ate like 20 raw cherries after work.

6 miles easy

I really didn’t feel like running after work, I just wanted to be lazy and lay in the bed but I forced myself out that door to get this done. So since I was in a lazy mood I decided to just make this a relaxed pace run…I ran this all the way to mile 5.76 without a care in the world then my inner competitor kicked in because there was no way I was going to run for 60 mins without hitting 6 miles (smh at myself). I couldn’t help myself folks, I just couldn’t …runner probsΒ

Here’s a Facebook post from back when I first started running…things always seem the hardest in the beginning. Keep running, it’ll get better
