Goofy Challenge Training Week 6/36
Happy Monday! Joining Tara (Running ‘n’ Reading) and the gang for the first time for the Weekend Update!
Last week marked my first 6 weeks of training! It feels like I got a good base training going on. Plus, I feel like my mind is settling on this plan instead of hem-hawing on which plan is best.
The runs were meh. My soul was content. Kinda contradictory but I feel like I’m getting a better understanding of what is going on with my body. Also, finally got to buy Superfeet insoles that will make (I hope) my right foot PF don’t bother me as much as it did this week.
Sunday 6/7 – 3.1 miles
Pace: 15:28 48:06
This was a great run. I shaved about 2 minutes from my 5K time. What I liked the most was that for the first time I ran an even pace for the whole time. This was huge! So sad that the week went downhill from here.
Wednesday 6/10 – 3 miles
Pace: 18:10 54:51
My legs simply didn’t cooperate with me. I thought this was a fluke and penciled it as just a bad run. Then Friday happened.
Friday 7/12 – 3.5 miles
Pace: 18:49 1:05:50
I tried to run at the beginning but I wasn’t feeling it. I feel like this was more of a mental barrier than being unable to run physically. I was checking out a new route, so, decided to walk it out.
It felt like my body was telling me that 4 runs a week are not happening for now. So after changing My Asics app to 4 runs, changed it back to 3 runs a week. This has messed up a little bit the training days but I’m sure at the end it all will work out.
I hear you body. Let’s make the three runs work, ok0
