This theme of this week's sermon is that there are only two reasons to run.
- You want to
- Someone is chasing you
I ran short (sorry...I'm very punny) in the "want to" department this week. It's still winter, and yes I am so flipping happy that we have a treadmill but after 4 straight weeks the enthusiasm is wearing thin. Something is going down in my work world that isn't good...by all means give me "work" problems over "real" problems any day and I know how to handle the situation but I'm still pissed and let it get to me, which cost me a few nights of sleep.
On the bright side, "bump watch" is looking like a non-event. Last week I mentioned that I dropped something on my foot that left a bump and was starting to hurt...the bump is still there but the pain is not. And I'm still loving my new shoes. Believe me, the glass is half full even if it's frozen and a little salty.
Monday: weights and 4.3 slow treadmill miles
Tuesday: 6.3 steady paced treadmill miles
Wednesday: weights, no running
Thursday: 6.3 miles with a lil' speed to pep things up. A bunch of one minute fast/two minutes slow.
Friday: Oof! I did not sleep well due to my work pulling a dick move the previous day. I zombied my way through strength and 4.3 slow miles.
Saturday: Grr! I can shake off one bad night of sleep but not two. I knew right away that a long run was out of the question, and the more I thought about it, a short run was equally unappealing. I simply didn't have a "why" to run...I didn't want to and no one was chasing me. 0.0 miles is always a valid distance.
Sunday: Woot! I got my sleep and my "want" back. 5.3 miles with a bunch of 30 second speed bursts.
More of the same! The forecast says another indoor week and work is gonna be work. I'm in a holding pattern on both fronts. Spring is coming;-)
