If it hasn’t been obvious, I haven’t been doing any great runs lately. I am really loving CrossFit and have been dedicating most of my workout time to throwing around some weights and practicing some technique things. I try to fit in miles where I can but it’s not too high on my priority list. Also, the runs I have been doing haven’t been leaving me feeling overjoyed or like it was kick-ass.
This week was a busy one for me. But, that just means I am perfecting the task of multitasking.
2 nights this week while dinner was in the oven (yes, I cooked twice) I got some miles in on the treadmill. It required me to set the alarm on my phone so I wouldn’t lose track of time but it worked out well.
Both of these runs were good. They were both at a comfortable pace. 7 miles bouncing from 8:34 to 8:49 and 4 miles done as a progression…starting at 8:49 and finished the last 1/2 mile at 7:19 .
I am out of town this weekend- in Florida to be exact-which means I spent friday working then traveling. I planned to take friday as a rest day which meant I would hopefully get in a good, longer run Saturday morning. I came prepared with my garmin and woke up alarm-less around 6. Just as the sun was about to come up I laced up and headed out the door.
I knew for this run I wanted to go longer than I had been, I wanted to take it easy for the first half and even negative split if possible. I didn’t obsessively check my watch but when I did I was shooting for 8:25’s. I ran an out and back *to the beach 😉 * and decided on the way back I would run by feel, not what my watch says.
I am pleasantly surprised with how it went!
I am definitely stoked with this run. I felt amazing the entire time. I was worried I would be mega slow and not have the stamina to hit 10 miles. Shows you how awesome CrossFit is 😀 I am glad I hit double digits and I love love loved running in shorts and a tank. Makes me ready for spring!
I had some family things to tend to today but tomorrow I plan on getting my game face on like my favorite girl…
…. and we are heading out tomorrow to go stalk Mickey 😉
What was the last run or workout you had that left you feeling amazing?
