Ran 2.01 Pace 10:31 min/mile
50 crunch/25 leg/ 10 push
I was slower again tonight, though i did make 2 miles. I know exactly why i was slower tonight – I Did Not Want To Go! No real tangible reason. It is late, i am enjoying a book i am reading and wanted to keep at it, with stretching it will take sooo much time, blah blah blah.
During the first leg, i am trying to make deals, ‘i can use the old turnaround and just do .7 today’, or ‘i can cut it shorter if i turn around here instead of doing the rest of this loop’. I tried to focus on my breathing, think about the cool stuff happening in the story, and run right over Whiny Pants McGee. So, yeah, it was slower out there. But i feel good that i stuck with it, and i feel great after having done it. My body feels good. I know i will sleep better having accomplished my goal instead of lying awake wondering why i did not just do it.
My breathing was much better (not that it has been bad). I was able to breathe through my nose for a large majority of the run!
And my post stretch floor exercises were easier than they have been – even the push-ups were not really bothersome. I do think it may take me a week or so to build much past 2 miles, but i will get there. I also think i may have to take a leg rest day here sometime soon.
Back to the book. Night night.
