Running Log ~ Week 11

Leave a comment

OH MY GOD!!!!

Have you seen my countdown number yet?  My race is approaching so fast!  Due to a few set backs I am not yet able to run a 10K.  I thought I would by March, but that didn’t happen.

But that’s ok.  I really only need to be able to run an 8k, which is about 5 miles.

Right now I can do four.  So I am confident that in two weeks I will be able to run 5.

Right?

So here is how it has gone since my last log.  I have regressed.

I was fighting running the three fifteen minute intervals, so instead I ran three ten minute intervals and one 15 minute at the end.

I ditched the app.  I know what I need to do now.  I just need to run.

My new goal is to stop focusing on time and focus on distance.  In less than two weeks I will be participating in my first race event.  I need to know that I can go the distance.  I don’t care how long it is going to take, well I do, but not as much as I care if I can finish.

But how did I do the last couple of runs?

Can you see? Between Tuesday and Sunday I had increased my distance but decreased my time!

 

But here is the most exciting picture this week:
