And the running continues...

This morning was up at 7:00 a.m. and was out running at 8 a.m., with the sun shining hard, did 4 laps there in the conservatory and came back in 39:38 for 6.5k. I am running slow these days but that is part of getting the shape back. I am loving the running, but I will ramp up the training soon. Have a great Sunday!!

Getting back to the groove

I have not run for the last 10 days so today I went out to run, the breaj was not planned,it was just low motivation, maybe I ll always struggling with motivation, but I set a goal for December and I need to get back to it. Today I also incorporated pull ups and pull ups, could not do 2 pull ups, but did 4 x 10 push ups, I need to increase my pull up repetition so that I can become significantly stronger. Did 4 laps today and stopped there to do the pull ups. Ran without a watch today so did not know the time, but I felt really good during the run. 5.5k total or so.

Tiring run

This morning at 7:50 a.m. I went out to the conservatory with the sun shining hard. I did 5 laps there feeling tired, it seems that yesterday´s run was phisiologically demanding for me, because I felt like crap today, I only did 7.5k in 45:50, much slower than yesterday. I really dont care about pace on these runs, but I just battle it out to get this one done, the heat was just strong. 6 runs this week, something that I had not done in a long time.  I need to do this for a lot of more time and I should see results, letss see how it goes!! Have a great Sunday!

Good Saturday run and random thoughts

Yesterday I took the day off, had not taken a day off this week so yesterday it was. This early morning I went out with my father at 6:00 a.m. to the mirador, I dropped him after the mile and I was moving at a good effort, put the watch on time of day and just finished the 8k in 45:13. Happened to be a half marathon time trial there in the park, I was encouraging runners as they passed by. I have came to the conclusion that running is a human sport, you gotta be humble in that sport because there will be people that willl be much faster than you, but not more of a runner than yourself, its not about speed its about admiring other's people effort and sacrifices. For me that is more surprising than the actual speed. My father finished in around 48+ mins. I felt good but felt faster than the actual speed, no biggies I  am heading the right direction. I cant imagine where I can get if I run 6 times per week for a lot of time consistently. In the past years ( 4-5) I have suffered what I could  name it as cumulative inconsistency, I have not stopped running altogether, but the lack of consistency made me fatter and much slower, plus it removed me the guts to train hard and move forward in life. I need to have the balls to keep training hard consistently, not only in running, but in other areas of life as well.  Ha!! What a big rambling folks! Have a great Saturday!

Morning run

And the running continues.... I am off from work today  so I ran at 8:00 a.m. with my sunglasses because the sun was shining hard.  I did 5 laps today for a total of 7.5k, in 44:13, I just put the watch on time of day and just cruise,,, ha,, honestly did not cruised, I was a bit tired because I only ran 13 hours ago.In the last lap I just incorporated 4 strides, felt abosulately slow on these, felt like a truck full of rocks, wow , a lot of work to do!! Anyway, I am training consistently and I am feeling better and better during runs, that is a positive things. Have a great everyone!! I am feeling better and better, gotta be in Great shape in December!

Slow after run work

Tuesday I ran after work once again and I did 4 laps, I thought that I was going faster than yesterday from the get go, but that was not the case. I started running with the watch on time of day so that the body can find its natural pace and I dont obsess with splits each lap, but I was surprised today to see the final time, too slow compared to how I felt. 39:27 in 6.5k. Anyway I got my run in and that is the most important, pace will come eventually. Have a great night!!

Pst. Iris llegaste a España?

Today I did the same route as yesterday in 38:55, was done after work too but felt better than yesterday. Good night!
