It is official. I have started running again. I have started running lately on the treadmill, but have been doing sprints. I have not logged any miles in a long time.
I signed up for a 10k for July. I have felt the need to do a race lately. This will give me more than just a 5k, but not enough training to suck up all my time. It is perfect for my needs at this point in my life.
I came down with a cold the end of the week. I still completed my T25 workouts, but was planning on taking two rest days this weekend. Then nap time hit Saturday and I decided to try to sweat out the sickness. Somehow I was able to complete Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred and then did 3 miles on the treadmill after. I started out slow on the treadmill, then kept increasing my speed every song or two. It was a great workout, but I sure was tired by the time I hit the 3rd mile.
Sunday has become my rest day. I have started to meal prep during nap time. I think I caught the runner bug, because I decided to hit the treadmill again on Sunday. For this run I took it easy. I tried to keep at an easy pace which was hard at times. I wanted to increase speed, but I stayed consistent. For these kind of runs I like to put on an album (not a fast playlist) and just cruise to the music. I am that runner who jams to the music while running. I may have even put up my hands a few times. Good thing I was in my basement with the curtains closed. I have Dierks Bentley and Matchbox Twenty to thank for my 4 mile run on Sunday.
No matter what I do for workouts, I always come back to running. It is very therapeutic for me. I hope to one day share my love for running with Alex.
Make it a great day,
