Running Log Week 9

Leave a comment

I run.

I am a runner.

I run.

This was supposed to be the I completed week 9 post.  But I didn’t.

Today we got some bad weather.

The snow isn’t so bad, but the ice is horrible.  So I didn’t get to the gym and the super low temps aren’t conducive to me running outside.  The wind is blowing like crazy dropping the temps down to single digits.   It’s ridiculous.

But I will share that week 9 brought back intervals.  And added 14 minutes to the run.

So the plan is to run for 10 min then walk for one.  And repeat for a total of four times.  With the addition of the warm-up/cool-down, that brings the total work out time to 54 minutes.

Stopping for a minute is hard.  Really hard.  I found it was easier to continuously than to stop and start again.

I needed lots of coaching from myself.

10 minutes seemed long, telling myself only three more songs.  Not as long.

One step at a time. Left foot. pound.  Right foot. pound. Left arm forward. Right arm forward.  Breathe in. Breathe out.

Keep. On. Running.
