I had a goal to run faster at the beginning of the year. It’s ok to change the goal a bit right? I mean I still have a goal at least …hehehe.
Well, in all honesty I’m finding it really hard to run faster. I just don’t know how. I think I need a schedule or program to follow and I’m still looking for it. Anyone care to help?
In the mean time because I wasn’t reaching that goal I was getting really discouraged and it made me drag my feet out for runs when it wasn’t supposed to be that way! I was finding running a drag and a chore and beating myself up (mentally) for being such a turtle… I really didn’t like where this was going.
So, my new goal is to just get out there. For the rest of the year and I pray for my whole lifetime I want running to be something consistent in my life. PR or no PR, fast or slow I will still get out and go for a run.
I will run because I can.
I will run because I have come so far.
I will run because I love me more when I run.
I will run because it clears my mind.
I will run because running has changed my life and I don’t want to go back to the old me.
So this week I got myself out a few times without my Garmin watch and it just feels good to not care about my speed and timing and all that for now. I just need to build up my motivation and go back to how I really started my love for running.
As a school teacher who is on school break what do I do? I go for a run in the morning! My husband and I ran from our place to Kranji Memorial which was around 10Km. He loves history and so we hung out there for an hour.
I also tested out my 2XU shirt and wore it on the run. I like the shirts that are long and can cover my backside when I’m wearing the compression pants hahaha.
The run starts at 5.30am in a week and half! Woooo! I have a feeling I’ll be limping afterwards but I’m looking forward to it:D
