This week I finished off with actually getting out and running three times. There was even some resemblance of a schedule to my runs. It wasn't really all that structured, but it was somewhat like it used to be back at the height of my training last year. I put a two miler in on Monday morning 5:00 am, and again on Thursday morning at 5:00 am. I would have gotten out on Wednesday morning but it was raining and I am not quite back to that level yet..... although I will be soon. I then wrapped up the week today with a 3.2 miler. This is the longest I have run since my injury 7 months ago.
Today's 3.2 mile run started with the first mile run with my daughter, Payton. We ran just over a one mile circle and I dropped her back off at home as I continued one more circle and then a short out and back distance to finish off my run. It was a really good run, and I am happy for the new distance. Each week I hope to progress a little bit more and push that distance a little bit more.
I am really enjoying my MyTach GPS Sport Trainer. It really helps me worry less about where I will run and where the mile markers are etc. I can just get out and go and it takes care of how fast I am running and how far. It lets me enjoy the run more and plan less. I will still have an overall plan, but the mapping out the courses will not be as important to me.
Till next time.....

I'm glad to see you are getting back into the running.ReplyDelete
Good to see you getting started again. Having something to tell you the distance and speed is a must for me. I've been using a Polar watch that enables me to go running anywhere without much planning. I just go and then turn when I reach half the distance.ReplyDelete
Nice to see you back in action again, Tim! Hope you & Payton had a great run! Nice to have the company, eh?!ReplyDelete
Congrats on the 3+ miler :-) You are really making progress! --Alex (aka run350)ReplyDelete
Thanks all for stopping by and the encouragement. Tomorrow morning will be another early morning -very cold- run. :) And I am looking forward to it.ReplyDelete
