I need to keep a running journal, and I’m considering doing that here on this blog. If I keep the posts really short, will it be 1) Interesting 2) Not interesting 3) Make you want to run and poke needles in your eyes. Please feel free to be brutally honest.
See, the thing is, if I write it here, then I will be shamed into running. I have a little trouble getting out the door to run, but once I’m out, I’m always happy I went. This is just another way to make me more accountable to my training.
Yesterday I ran 6.2 km in 33 minutes. I walked for 1.5 minutes halfway through, and it was a much faster pace than I would normally run. I was trying to push myself, and I was way beyond my comfort zone. I definitely couldn’t carry on a normal conversation at this pace. Andrea told me that if I want to run the half marathon in under two hours, then I will really have to train hard. I think this goal time may be overly ambitious, but I’m going to try to aim high and see where it goes.
So, have I bored you yet?
