Another nutty week…. basically the same as last week….soooo much to do with so little time. I think I need another month to really prepare for Boston….but Lesbihonest…. it’s coming regardless if I am ready or not. And you know how I know? Bc this is my reality…
I have been running just haven’t had much time to write… I swear I need a stand in for me some days… another week of working two doubles and swimming for Ella… leaves very little time to train, but some how I managed to squeeze in an 800 work out yesterday and let me tell you, I was siked. I was suppose to get it done Thursday but Ella’s swim location and my gym are in two completely different towns, therefore it just wasn’t happening. So Friday morning I packed my gym bag, went to work, did 5 hours of parent teacher conferences and then drove myself to the gym. My typical treadmill was in use (shocking), so I had to hop on a rando in the middle (yes, I had a half panic attack), and I went to town on this work out….
I did the first 5 at 713 pace
the next 2 at 703
the following one at 654
the last one at 644…and it felt awesome!
I love distance running so much. I keep saying after next year no more marathons… but than I start thinking about what my life would be like without running…. I would be miserable…. So I have decided that I will let my body dictate when I hang out my running shoes. I will continue to run marathons until I can’t any more, because I DO love the distance. It’s hard to believe that I once was a sprinter…. but I needed those short runs, they are what shaped me into the distance runner I am…Happy weekend friends what have you guys been up to….
What is your favorite workout in training?
Do you ever feel like you overbook yourself?
