I was pleased with last week and with me missing Sunday, I thought I would have a jump start this week by getting out and running a few miles.
As soon as I started to lace up my shoes I should of just sat back down on the couch and relaxed. Something was off and I just didnt feel like running. None the less, got my shoes on and headed out. Within the first quarter mile I could tell my legs were just sluggish and just DEAD WEIGHT. I powered through the run, I was shooting for five miles but ended up with 4.5 miles at 9:01 pace. Looking back at my splits, they were actually pretty good for adding in a few walking breaks here and there.
Now I've had those runs where you are lacking motivation but once you get out there things just open up and you have a decent run. Yesterday was different, I just didnt have my legs under me and couldnt do a whole lot about it. The take away though is that I'm dedicated to the training plan, knocking out the miles I need to, and I cant wait to have a better run tonight.
Have you ever had a run and just felt like you had a 20 pound backpack on? Are you doing anything special for St. Patricks Day?
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
