I'm just like you. And that's okay!
St. Jude Marathon 2011 – Training Day 11 – 3 Miles
I don’t know if it’s still the lack of sleep or I’m burned out on the treadmill (I’ve been training strictly inside for the last few months) or what…but I am…so…slow…
I mean, I’m slow anyway. My “fast” is a 10 minute per mile pace and I’ve yet to even get back to where I can do that again. It’s just so frustrating knowing I can run a 5K (and that was over a month ago and with less training) in 36 minutes and now barely keeping 3 miles at or below 40 minutes.
This morning would have been so lovely to have run outside…was in the lower 80s…overcast…but I needed the sleep more than the run! So maddening because I really needed the run outdoors to pick up my attitude which is clearly not very good right now.
Now that I got all that out…
The run wasn’t all that bad, just slow. And on the dreadmill. I thankfully don’t have any numbness in my foot and so far no knee pain. I debated strength training but decided to skip it since my brain and body (mostly my brain at this point) seem to be suffering for my lack of sleep.
I’m hoping our night-time situation clears up by the time school starts and before my mileage gets crazy.
It has to. Right?
3 Miles – 39:20 (treadmill/13:06 pace)
