This is me. Run Rest Repeat. I started out as an interval runner, before I ever heard the term, I imagine I will always be an interval runner. It works for me. I have some training runs where I push myself to run through several sets of intervals, but I always come back to them. There are elite runners who have won marathons by running intervals. There is no shame in my game!
I ran last night a rare occurrence, running during the week, at night. Night/Evening runs are always the hardest. Why, I don’t know, but they are. My legs usually feel like lead, I have a hard time getting my breathing just right. They are just hard. I should probably do them more often….Fortunately they are short too. I am most definitely a morning runner.
Tuesday is one of my usual yoga nights. I was waffling off and on all day about going or not. When I decided to get ready and go, I signed in to register only to find out there was a sub for the class. Some subs are ok, some I don’t care for so much. Since I decided I wasn’t going to class, I put my pajamas on since I wasn’t planning to go anywhere else. I figured I would have a bit of quiet time to work on the blog and some social media “stuff”.
My daughter came home from work and mentioned going for a short run before the kids got home with their dad. So I actually changed out of my “jams” and into running clothes (I’m impressed)….AND I ran without music! I did set my interval timer and kept it where I moved it to on Sunday. That was a smart decision as overall the run was tough. We only ran a mile but it was a hard one. I know as I get back into a routine it will get better.
Tonight I will do my weight routine. I have been neglecting that for a few weeks too. Jeff, my personal trainer, fusses at me every week about that…I’m sure “The Man” would be happy to see me use some of those weights I just had to buy, lol! Ok, really, he never sees me use them. Since he works nights and is already asleep when I use them at night, he never knows….except that one night I dropped a medicine ball and woke him up…oops! Last week I did start back with a portion of it, so I’m getting there; slowly but surely.
The subscriber list is growing each day, as are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. That’s because you are commenting and sharing my ramblings with your friends. I really do appreciate that. When you take your time to read the blog, and then like and comment on my postings it helps more people to see it, and I guess some of them like what I have to say too….
I hope your week is going well, so far. Let me know what you’ve been up too.
Until the next time
