Thursday run

I could not post yesterday so I am posting today. Today I will take the day off because I am going to the swiming pool and to be honest both shin are bothering me, not running, but when I touch the area I can feel as if I was hit there, so today´s rest certainly is going to serve me well.

Yesterday I headed out to the conservatory at 5:55 p.m. without a watch, was planning to run with a watch  but my brother took the watch to his work. No problem, I wanted to do around 50 mins, but after 5 laps in the conservatory , ran a bit more an called it a day. So around 6.5k total watchless.

I felt very strong and feel that the laps flew by, but for some reason I just wanted to stop after 5 laps. I ll try to run longer in either Saturday or Sunday,

Feeling good about my consistency and my training, the only way that I can improve is to run 6 days per week, but on the other side of the spectrum I am suffering from shin splints, I ll take that risk though, because running is my relieve and I cant fanthom to only run 3-4 times per week, plus I would not improve with that schedule.

Have a great Friday everyone!

Decent humpday run

Today I headed out to the conservatory as late as yesterday, at 7:15 p.m. this time around I did it on purpose since I really like the run yesterday and there not a lot of people walking there so no dodging people at all.

Today I wore my watch and wanted to hold a faster pace than my normal easy pace and wanted to do all laps sub 6 mins. I headed out to the conservatory in 7:32, that felt harder than it should, then did 4 laps in 5:58,5:50,5:45,5:27 and back home at a good pace. From the conservatory to home I did 6:15, so the pace was faster than the last lap in the conservatory, but of course on the way home I have a big downhill that put me in good momentum for the last 400s.

Felt unconfortable in the first lap, but after that just loosened up and the pace was faster and effort easier, the last lap I really pushed a bit.

Did 6.5k in 37:18. I think that is slow compared with the effort put, but I am getting there and running consistently. Felt good and was sweating like a pig at the end!

Have a great humpday and keep the running going!

Junk food day

Today I got my run later than planned, because at 3:30 p.m. I went to Wendy´s to eat some hamburguer with a friend, I ate a huge combo there and was full till around 7 p.m. I started my run at 7:15 p.m. and was still full, but I gave it a try.

I went out to the conservatory without a watch at an easy pace, did not feel bad at all, but felt fat and full of food, but could complete my 4 laps no problem, after 4 laps I headed back home. Today I did not stay with the guys there, I decided to just finish here at home as it was getting late.

On top of that after the run I had another Wendy´s combo that my brother brought me yesterday and I  save it to my dinner today. I feel really guilty about all that eating. I must have consumed around 5000 calories I think today.

I need to keep an eye on that, because I am eating a lot lately, I do better run more and eat less if I want to be in better shape by December.

6.5k without a watch.

Have a great Tuesday!

Zapping the zero

No running from Thursday till today. I was going to take Friday off, but that dragged me until today, Saturday I just felt sluggish, and on Sunday I just was afraid due to the robbery problems. I felt guilty the whole weekend and was paranoic because I thought that I had lost fitness. That was not the case, but I surely did not gain any fitness either. So 4 runs last week, the goal is 6 times per week of running.

Today I headed out to the park at 6:15 p.m. without a watch and just ran easy for 5 laps. In the last lap I incorporated 4 x 20 seconds or so, I did not have a watch, but I played it by ear and I think that I ran the strides harder than I should since I had a Bethoven musical with my breathing. Very loud and out of control. Doing strides I can realize how out of shape I am, but We are here to learn and improve and I ll include those on a regular basis.

While the breathing was out of control, my legs felt very smooth and fast and did not feel heavy today eventhough I have been eating like a pig in the last few days. We will see what tomorrow brings!!

6.5k without a watch!! Have a great night everyone!!

" Long run"

Today I wanted to run a bit longer tha usual so I headed out to the conservatory earlier than normal.

I got there in 7:44, then did 7 laps in 6:22,6:08,6:07,6:04,6:03,5:58,5:50. Obviously I wore a watch today, finished in 52 mins what I think was 8.5k. Heck, that was my normal run months ago, today I struggled in the last lap.

I was not sure about how many laps I was going to do, I just wanted to run very easy at the beginning and then wait that the pace come to me. Basically, that was what happened, the last lap felt the same pacewise than the first lap and the difference was 30 seconds.

I gotta be careful, because both shins are bothering me, not while running, but when I am not running and I touch the area, I can feel pain there, so need to watch out for that.

Happy to have run today!!

Have a great Thursday!

Tired watchless run

Today from the get go I felt tired, then after 800s or so I felt better, but that did not last too much  because soon after I felt tired again.  I ran watchless and headed out at 6:15 p.m.  and did 5 laps and some more.

Jose joined me when I had 2.5 laps and He finished the run with me. I was having a conversation with him, but sometimes I just could not finish a sentence well without huff and puff. The pace was easy enough, but it seems that I am tired.

The good news is that I ran watchless and only listened my body, did not race the watch as I some times do .

Hope that tomorrow is a better day!

6.5k watchless.

Have a great Tuesday!!
