Fit for Me 27/52

What I did last week:

Thursday-30 minute training run.

Friday and Saturday-Our town does a two day festival for the 4th of July where there are food trucks, carnival rides, and band stages set up in the downtown area. It means a couple hours of walking, and in our case pushing a stroller. Exercise done!

Sunday-40 minute training run. This was also the first time in approximately 2 years that I have run outside without the dogs for a true run completely on my own. It was weird and great at the same time. It was nice not to be bogged down by leashes and doggy bags. 

Tuesday-Another 30 minute training run but I did it on an elliptical since my leg was giving me issues.

Impressed by:

I am maintaining right now. And in this season of busy, that is about all I can ask for!

Struggled with:

I had a lot of cramping in my quad this week so that impeded me going as hard as I want to on my run last night. I think I may have slept on it wrong because I woke up in a lot of pain. It is always a struggle when you have an injury, especially early on in your training.

Did I meet my goal from last week?

I did all of my training runs!

What is my goal for next week?

I want to make it to a class this weekend.

Fitness Thoughts:

I am taking a different approach to my training this time. I have always done my training by distance per run, this time I am doing time per run. I am really liking it so far because I haven’t really run run since before I was pregnant with George. This is allowing me to ease back into the running game with a combination run/walk by judging it by time. Not all of my runs have looked pretty, but I am making the time that I need to so far.

If all else fails, I will remember this.
