This past week I logged 14 miles running. It was by far the best week of running that I have had.
Here I have last weeks workouts. (We are following this training plan)
Tuesday: 5K Splits: Mile 1: 10:26,Mile 2: 10:21, Mile 3: 9:46 + Weights & 10 minutes spinning
Wednesday: My first tempo run! 30 minutes of running, 2.89 miles covered.
Thursday: My fastest 5K so far! Splits: Mile 1: 10:02, Mile 2: 10:03, Mile 3: 9:31 + Weights & 10 Minutes of spinning
Friday: Rest (2 hours golfing with a cart, 2nd annual drunk golfing expedition)
Saturday: Skipped Run- Family Party
Sunday: I really didn’t want to run on Sunday. I was feeling lethargic and wanted to just watch Mad Men (<–current obsession) Chris was going to go run without me and I decided to go and see how I felt. SO glad that I did- I ended up rocking it! 5 Miles– Splits: Mile 1: 10:48, Mile 2: 10:42, Mile 3: 10:30, Mile 4: 10:30, Mile 5: 10:09 (First time running 5 consecutive miles without a walking break!)
I am beginning to feel stronger and am proud of the fact that I can run longer distances even on days where I would rather be napping. I can run these distances and not be sore the next day. I can run and clear my mind and enjoy the remaining days of summer. I am looking forward to running in the fall. The brisk temperatures will be welcomed after this steamy summer!
How do you stay motivated?
