Training Tuesday 7.9.12

Hey friends! It's Tuesday again, and around here that means I talk about my training! If you're working toward any kind of healthy living goal, feel free to link up and share your progress. Go on, brag about yourself a little!

Workouts this week:
Tuesday: Rested
Wednesday: Rested -- drove back to Kansas! Woooo.
Thursday: Rested.
Friday: Ran two miles. For America.
Saturday: Rested
Sunday: 2.5 miles
Monday: Seven miles on a treadmill. Woof.

Lots of rest this last week. Early in the week, I really just needed it, you know? And then once I was home, it was really tough to make myself get out and run. So I switched my long run to Monday and did a lower-mileage week. But it was good. I feel good about the week.

I pushed my long run to Monday for a few reasons. I was home with Pat and didn't want to sacrifice an hour and a half. It was hot as heck out and humid on top and I didn't have access to anywhere to run indoors.

And mostly, I think, I was anxious about the long run. But I actually did really well -- hit my goal 10k time and kept going to finish out the whole 7 miles in decent time.

I'm not sure when I'll get over this. I had some bad runs, but that happened last round of training, too. No need to get anxious about it. But I do. And I run inside like a weenie. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with running inside -- but there is when it's because you're scared to run outside.

I need to get over it because I have two races coming up and guess what -- races almost always happen outside! But I'm hoping if I keep doing my shorter runs outside and my long ones inside, maybe it will balance out?

No big topic today friends. Just these small musings.

I hope your goals, big or small, running related or not, are going well!

I need to start running again. I went almost every day but then took a break over the weekend. :(

Traveling always makes workouts tougher for me (and we had 3 big travel days during this last vacation.) Sometimes we just need the rest and some days we really need to run inside.

But, yes, races tend to occur outside. ;)

Running ANY outside helps. And there's always that extra boost of adrenaline on race day.

I have a feeling you'll be juuuust fine!

How in the WORLD did you run a whole seven miles on a treadmill! You go girl! That sounds so miserable to me! I get so bored on that damn thing!

Kaitlin said...

Man I could never do that on a treadmill, I get so bored and when I get off I am SO DIZZY. The whole world bounces up and down for a while after I use the treadmill haha!
