I used to run alot. I trained for and ran a half marathon last fall, and felt so burned out! So, I started doing HIIT and strength training. When I switched what I was doing with my cardio, I really noticed quickly that my endurance level dropped. I also became somewhat of a wuss when it comes to pushing myself hard. I think it's because with the HIIT, you are done so quick. Which is nice, and it is an effective way to do cardio. BUT, I miss running. I miss running an "easy three" and doing well at 5k races.
So, I've been running a little bit more lately. I ran my timed mile last night and finished it in 8:20. That's my best time this year. (I started out at 11:33)! I'm excited to see progress and also excited that I am less lazy about pushing my body. I also did my VERY FIRST chin up last night. I made my husband come and watch!
I feel like I am finally making some progress again!
