Groundhog Day Workout: Off the treadmill!

Outside runing on an unseasonably warm day in February! I joined a gym last week, and for three days in a row I couldn’t make myself run any more than two miles, I was so bored. SO glad to get some fresh air. Hopefully the weather holds for a few more days so I can go back to my new gym energized!

Today’s training plan was for speed work, something I’m really not that good at. “For your workout for today you are going to run on a flat course for 40 minutes; 10 minutes easy, 10 minutes strong, 5 minutes easy, 10 minutes strong, 5 minutes easy.”

My speed work went more like this: 10 easy, 7 strong, 5 easy, 5 strong, 5 easy, 5 strong, 3 easy. But that’s okay. I followed it a little bit, stayed with the pattern. I could have stayed in bed, but I got up and moved! I’ll try again tomorrow. Left hip kind of sore today.

Running this weekend with Heather! Doing the Starbucks 10k route, which does not unfortunately allow for a stop at Starbucks….however, if we go four extra blocks we can detour back to the Treehouse Coffee Shop at the end 🙂

My active.com profile, which I have been sorely neglecting, is saying that the Canyonlands Half Marathon is 44 days away. C.R.A.P.

    Remind me when the Starbucks 10 k comes around and I’ll stand on the sideline and cheer you on. I’ll also bring a cup of starbuck coffee for you to grab a sip as you run past. You’re doing great with your running. Keep up the good work.

    Good for you girl. I am struggling with 200 crunches every other day. Not the crunches, just the time and remembering to do them. Kudos for getting out there!
