It's time to get it together! I took an almost two week hiatus from running due to having the flu and then a terrible cold. I'm still not 100%, but I'm good enough to get back into it.
I was supposed to do my 9 mile run yesterday, but I
was far too hungover wasn't quite feeling it, so I opted to postpone it until Sunday. This run was hard. Mainly because it was my first run getting back into it.
My 9 miles today took me just over 95 minutes. Not too bad. I felt that I walked a lot of it, but I suppose I didn't really if I completed it only 5 minutes longer than my goal time. My goal is to run steady 10 minute miles for race day. I haven't decided yet if I feel that this goal is attainable or not.
Next week my miles really get into the double digits. 14 miles on Saturday. This will be the longest run that I have ever done. Ever. I need a plan for it. I'm bored out of my mind with my treadmill and my music and everything else that is in my home gym. Unfortunately, in our small town, hogging a treadmill at the community gym for over 2 hours is completely unacceptable and, in all honesty, I don't really want to run there anyways. My options will be my own treadmill or outside. And right now my backyard looks like this:
I'm sure you can imagine what the trails and streets are like.
I'm going to move where my treadmill is and perhaps find a movie that I have never seen to watch during these 14 miles.
Please, if you have any suggestions on how to make this less dreadful, comment below and help me out!!
