My Running Accomplishment!
How is everyone's week going? It's Wednesday and I feel so weak, but I am still hoping to get a workout in and I am hoping to bike ride later today also, hopefully it doesn't rain on me!
I just want to speak on this accomplishment that I did yesterday. I ran 4 miles about two to three weeks ago and I completed that in 54:26. Then yesterday I ran the same 4 miles and I completed that in 48:57.
I used my nike plus app to calculate the distance and the previous time before hand and I remember telling myself, "I just want to make this under 53 minutes," that's all I keep telling myself. So I did, I tried to keep a nice even pace, but I was fluctuating paces between 9:30's and 12:30 paces.
"Trust the process" right? That's what this is all about, that's what this training is all about. It never seems like it's making sense until you compare runs or maybe it might make sense in another way for you, but when I saw those times, I knew I was doing something right, I knew this process, this training was working.
Looking at back at my training plan I realized I should have ran 5 miles instead of 4, so I was a mile off. But I'm not beating myself up too much about it. This Saturday I have a long run coming up and it will be my first long run ever! Let's see how this blows over, hopefully the weather is kind to me this weekend.
