A few days back I wrote a post comparing running with and without music. Even though I came to the conclusion that I would rather run without music, I still enjoy it. So I figure I would share what I am currently listening to with you all!
Yup, great song.
It was rough. My legs didn't feel like moving. They were heavy when I started and stayed that way for about a mile. I think it was because I had the 5k Thursday and ran 4 miles yesterday when I should have ran less or rested. Oh well, I guess its just a lesson I will have to remember! Once I got to the 2 mile point I was still moving slow and my legs didn't feel fresh at all, but I pushed on and ran the entire 3 miles without stopping. Somehow I managed an 8:22 pace even though I felt a lot slower than that. I was honestly just happy I was able to go the entire time! 3 weeks ago I would have quit and walked home.
I still plan to do my long run of 5 miles tomorrow, and then back to 2 on Monday. This way I can stay on point for running 100 miles in July. Staring on the 11th I will be starting my actual training plan for the marathon so it will be easier to follow along with my training, and kick me in the butt if I don't follow it.
I am still looking for a local 5k to run this month as well. I think I may have found one on the 30th, but I need to look into it more.
Questions for You:
- What song is currently stuck in your head?
- When do you feel most accomplished after a run?
- Do you use others training programs or do you create your own?
Now to get ready for the rest of my day(a.k.a work). Should be fun standing for about 8 hours...have a great rest of the day!
