Some adjustments

Friday, January 09, 2015

Last week was my first week back in a training program for running. The training program I'm doing is specifically to increase my speed. I am training for a 10K at the end of Feb. However... last week, I was only able to do the 5K training workout. My allergies are really affecting my lung capacity. Last night I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill. I think, for now, I'll be training more on the treadmill. It will help me keep a consistent pace as well as being inside away from the elements. I have also decided that I'm going to scale back on my running. I'm going to concentrate on my short distance for now. This will help me to reach my speed goal, do more HIIT training with running and also, it will give me more time to crosstrain. All I did was run last fall, I need to add some variety and keeping my distances shorter will help me.

Last night I took a picture of the treadmill after I was done. Not my best time, but it's a good starting point.

    You are awesome! You are powerful! You are strong! And you CAN succeed in every single one of your goals at this point. Think about how far you have come at this point. I know you got this, and so do you!!

    I'm really proud of you. I like how you are switching your focus from your long-range goal to shorter distances so you can concentrate on your speed. With your determination, I know you will succeed.

    I totally agree - you do need to add some variety to your workouts. I need to work on that too, well at the moment I need to work on just getting back on a workout schedule!

    If I read that right, you are running a 15 minute mile or better, which I think for any asthmatic is pretty fabulous. You say it isn't your best time, but I know teens that can't do that well. So very proud of you, Sarah!
