This is what ill look like at the end, hopefully!
For the last few weeks I have be running 3-4 days a week, with Monday, Wednesday and Friday being rest days. I decided that I wanted to run more this week so I changed it to Monday/Wednesday shorter runs but with more speed, and I kept Friday as my dedicated rest day during the week.
That means that today I ran 2 miles in a time of 14:42. I glanced at my watch when I finished the first mile and saw that I did it in about 8:00 so I picked up the speed until I was going as fast as I felt I could sustain and held that for the last 800m, and I ended up doing the second mile in about 6:42. I thought that was a good run for a quick 2 miler. Tomorrow I will be running 3 miles again but at a comfortable pace to make sure I run the entire distance.
Thought For The Day:
So I have been thinking about something recently. Is living a life with goals the best way to achieve what we aim for? Is the best way to get somewhere in life to set obtainable goals, then increase them?
I think for me this is a good way to stay motivated, because setting a goal like "run a 5k in 15 minutes" is harder to work for, but saying "run a 5k in 21 minutes" then once I get that I am for 20 and so on is much more achievable and I am able to say I have accomplished goals I have set.
Questions for the Reader!
- What goals do you currently have?
- When is your next race?
- What is a tradition of yours on race day?
Until tomorrow, happy and safe running!
