Thursday morning was rainy with a little bit of thunder, so there was no way I was getting out to run and push the boys in the stroller. We had a full schedule, so I knew if I didn’t get my 4 mile run in the morning, it wasn’t going to happen. Since we don’t have treadmill, I had to improvise. Instead, I ran the stairs in my house for 35 minutes and I ran the small loop in my house for 15 minutes. It may not have been 4 miles, but it was way better than nothing.
I can tell that I fit in some version of all my runs this week, because my long run (8 miles) went much better than expected. I ran 11:45 minutes per mile. Which is 15 seconds faster than any of my runs up to this point. Oh, and I felt great!
Here is a recap of last weeks plan…
Monday: Walk (30 min.) or >1 mile – Walk Done
Tuesday: 3 miles – Done
Wednesday: Walk (30 min.) or >1 mile – Walk Done
Thursday: 4 miles – In the house – see above
Friday: Walk or Off – OFF
Saturday: 8 miles – DONE
Sunday: 2 miles – Will be done this afternoon.
Here is this weeks plan…
Monday: Walk or run >1 mile
Tuesday: 3 miles
Wednesday: Walk or run >1 mile
Thursday: 4 miles
Friday: Walk or Off
Saturday: 5 miles
Sunday: 3 miles
I am still not as motivated or as in love with running as I was a year ago, however, I do feel that I am starting to get back to that place. Right now it is just about getting out there and getting moving again.
How was your week?
