1. Not happening
2. Amazing and awesome
No middle ground. If I get out at all, I either do fantastic and amazing and unicorns gallop next to me, or I make it a mile and sweat to death and wait for puddle-me to dry up and then I walk home.
|Yeah. I'm finished.|
Work BLEW UP in my face a bit ago. A round of lay-offs that left more casualties than I was even prepared for left a small amount of people to do the jobs of...not a small amount of people. Though, we're doing it, so I guess it can be done. It's taken time to get things into a manageable rhythm but I did make it out for some runs of 5ish miles from time to time. Not what I needed to marathon train, but at least I wasn't sedentary. It does mean that I missed two long runs and I'll somehow have to find a way to get back in the swing of it. If I wasn't too lazy to tab over to Garmin Connect I could confirm my longest run this month, but I'm pretty sure it was 10 miles.
How. Ev. Er! That particular ten miles that I am thinking of went swimmingly (as in hot and good, so ha!) and I rode the wave for a few days. Broke my 10-miler record by 15 minutes! Granted, I don't run 10 miles all that often.
I've also broken 30 minutes for a 5k a few times now. Almost enough where the excitement it wearing off when it happens. Two months ago I started a race with an A-goal of sub 34 minutes and I killed it with a 32. Now I'm all of a sudden thinking that 30 minutes could be my new normal. That's the progress.
Endurance, however, is still something that I'm struggling with a bit. Having little time to run and having that little time also occur during the HOTTEST AND HUMIDEST parts of the days make it seem almost unbearable sometimes.
|Sometimes I get to run here. Sometimes it sucks, but it's pretty enough that I don't care.|
Hopefully fall comes sooner rather than later and the cooler temps help me stay cool and collected, too.
