Race reports, leg pains, and I finally get to post about my training. Well let's face it, my training has been a joke. Two weeks ago we had our 5k race and I was going hard after the PR. I ended up taking three rest days before and two rest days after that race. Ran Tues and Wed then we had our 10k. Took two rest days before and one rest day after.
You can see a common trend here. We are 15 days into May and I've run six days and rested eight days. Yikes?!?! As I post that it just seems bad. Now i know i had a stomach bug and a cold mixed into both of those small breaks so it's not all bad. I'm not making one of those declaration posts "I WILL rededicate myself" blah blah blah because I tried that last week and I ended up sick and not sticking to my re - focusing lol. Instead, I'm letting the month play out, running when appropriate. Two very positive points I'm building on 1) two months injury free, this is huge and 2) I've been strength training (squats and lunges) consistently for weeks now. My body feels great and I'm ready to start marathon training.
As for Mrs Schlub, she is KILLING it this month. Let me start with her new running group, yeah she started a running group, how cool is that. Group of ladies meet in the morning and run/walk/jog together. So much positive feedback so far. So she is on track for a near 100 mile month. I tell her to watch her miles but she doesn't listen to me anyways lol but regardless she is doing amazing this month.
Alright everyone, confession time, are you Mr Schlub or Mrs Schlub this month? Are you slumping or killing it?
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!
