I am SO better than that...4 miles in 47.10...UGH. Can you say SLOW??? I am telling you, this running schedule is totally kicking my ass, and I’m not sure why. Prior to joining the training program, I was running 3-4 times a week, so this is nothing out of the ordinary. Perhaps I am pushing myself harder and not just running at my leisurely pace. I think that’s it...I’m pushing myself. I like that. Pushing is good, in moderation...because I am friggin’ exhausted. I was sound asleep on the couch one night last week at 7:00pm. Honestly...
The training is going good. My schedule is a little off this week. I didn’t run yesterday, I had bigger fish to fry, like the Sox/Yanks game. I had tickets to the game last night and didn’t want to fall asleep by the 5th inning, so I pushed my schedule up a day this week. I will run tonight, Wednesday, Friday, and do my long run on Sunday. The training club isn’t meeting this weekend due to the holiday. Next week, I will back on their schedule.
This weeks training consists of a hill(s) workout. Not too bad, my only motivation is knowing that running hills will maybe, kinda, sorta, possibly, firm up my ass. Hey, what ever works to get me up them, that’s what I say! It’s a mind game people!
