I forgot to post this yesterday.
I ran four miles tonight. Outside. I can’t even remember the last time I ran four miles without walk breaks. It felt amazing.
I made my running goal for the week.
Today I found an old running playlist, and decided to give it a listen:
Not pictured: the Country Heat workouts I’ve been doing at least once per week.
I’m enjoying this fitness regimen, and I’m really hoping my health doesn’t fuck it up. I feel good. I feel strong.
Resulted in this:
I ran in two to three min bursts, but my heart rate was getting really high, and I felt like I might pass out, so then I’d walk for a few minutes. I feel like I’ve lost so much progress.
I hate summer.
I miss my treadmill.
You know what though? I’m going to do it again on Monday. Much earlier or much later though. Gotta beat the heat.
My treadmill died today. When I went downstairs to do a quick run during lunch, it started making these crazy noises when I turned it on and began vibrating. Not good. It’s about five years old, was really cheap, and has been heavily used, so it isn’t surprising, but I’m bummed because now I can’t run unless I want to go outside. I hate running outside in the summer. BOOOOO.
I do have a super nice treadmill at the office that nobody uses. It’s mine, so I can bring it home, but that’s going to be an ordeal. It’s huge.
I’m not about to start going to the gym – not with all this Covid shit going on.
Fuck fuckity fuck.
I guess for the foreseeable future, I’m going to become an outdoor morning runner.
Motherfucking boo to that. lol.
I did the run, and even though it was the same run I fucking killed on Monday, this time was rough. I wanted to stop so badly, but I didn’t. I didn’t even slow down.
I’m proud of myself.
Friday’s run adds five minutes of running time. No more walk breaks either. Shit is getting real. 😆
1st workout of the day: a couch to 10K run
- 5 min warmup
- 10 min run
- 5 min walk
- 10 min run
- 5 min cool down
That ended up being around 2.7 miles.
My 2nd workout of the day was a four mile walk with my husband and the dog. It was humid af – ugh.
And…now my knees hurt.
