Today- 6 x 800’s at 7:53
I have reached that sweet spot in training where everything feels right. I am adjusted to my schedule of run 3 days, cross 2 days, and rest 2 days. I look forward to my weekend long run the most! This past Saturday rocked my world. It was a beautiful morning and everything just clicked.
Huge shout out to Kate’s Downtown for letting my sweaty self use their bathroom and grab a cup of water. Kate is so sweet and told me to stop in anytime! Plus their brunch is fabulous.
I use a lot of mind tricks while running (long & speed work). Today during my 800’s, I dedicated each 1/2 mile to someone in my life. I thought about that person the whole time so I could take my focus away from the treadmill punishing me. First was Kevin, my mom, my dad, sister-in law Melissa, bestie Colleen, and one to my(kick-ass)self. It really helped pass the time.
Lately at the gym I have been listening to Lana Del Ray or Lumineers pandora stations. Pop music is more upbeat, but I focus on the music more with these stations. And then if I need a last mile pick-me-up I switch to Mike Posner.
Summary of the week:
Monday– 2 x 1200’s
Tuesday-Bike & strength
Wednesday-7 mi tempo (8:50s)
Saturday– 14 mi LSD @ 9:15
Here is some pizza from Casey’s in Port Huron. Kevin and I dined on pizza and icecream Saturday night!
