The next two-three weeks, I will train harder. I will get stronger. I will be more determined and motivated. Because I need this mental boost. I know the next 30K will be another killer and I’m not expecting too much from this one but I am going to not let that bring me down.
Last week- I finally started running again.
Here’s how the week went:
Monday: 6.39 miles @ 8:39/mi ave pace. How on earth did I pull that off? It is still a mystery.
Tuesday: strength training
Wednesday: 6.42 miles @ 8:52/mi ave pace. Not as fast as Monday’s run, and I was more scared than anything to hurt my knees going downhill so I did hold myself back.
Thursday- 5 miles on the treadmill. 9:17/8:32/9:09/8:39/9:09/7:30/8:32 The very last mile, I switched it up a little to fit in a fast pace and slower pace. Then I cooled off by walking a little bit on the treadmill.
Sunday-14.81 miles @ 11.1/mi ave pace for the Brio 25k and I wrote about it at: Me vs Me post. This very slow pace is mainly because I walked half of it- the very very last mile, from 14 miles- I ran again. Was super shocking and surprising to know that I could run after feeling so crappy and my legs being tired from speed walking (something I am definitely not used to). So I guess it wasn’t that bad considering I walked half of the whole thing.
Total: 32.62 miles
