Today’s run was great. I’m up to three miles now as seen on my Running Log. I was able to go 6.0 comfortably for the final half-mile of my run this morning. I jammed out to Bruce all morning (aka – I had this song on repeat for my whole run).
I just love it! I find when I have the same song on repeat, I’m able to let my mind wander (while still getting pumped by the music). At about 1 minute into that video is where it gets “running” good!
My other favorite running song: this guy (especially the Slane Castle version). About 1:15 into this video, it just makes me want to jump around!
Back to running, this week’s running goal: adding incline on my Thursday and Saturday runs. Next week’s running goal: increasing my speed until I get to 6.0 or 6.2 comfortably (while keeping the incline). I’ll keep you posted on how that works out.
I can’t wait for the warmer weather, so I can run outside! It will also be more realistic than running on a treadmill, plus there’s fresh air. The extra, extra bonus is that I won’t have to lug all my work gear to the gym and cram my ironed clothes into a tiny locker.
Oh, March… please get here faster (without any snow)…
Speaking of running outside…
I signed up for my first official 10K! Sunday, April 15th, I’ll be putting my hard work to the test at the 19th Annual Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter race.
In my mind, once I pay for it… there’s no turning back. I’m thinking it will be a good check point for me to see how my training is going. I’m hoping to sign up for a half-marathon to actually test/reward myself for my hard work. Once I get further into my training, I think I’ll have a better idea if May is too soon, or if it’s juuuust right.
