Back to my walk, I got back at it again this morning. I did three laps in our gated community and jogged one of the laps. It got me rethinking about the C25K program, I really enjoyed it and i think I let fear get to me when thinking about the weeks to come on the program haha! I've been trying to do more running intervals but haven't made much progress so I think I may pick up that program again and see if I can actually stick with it! My plan is to ignore my pace on the program and just focus on doing the intervals, no matter if I run them slow. When I slow down to a light jog, I can go way longer. I think if I can work on my endurance with a slow jog, I can eventually work on my speed.
Some days I don't feel like I'm making any progress in running, but then when I look at how far I've come so far, I think I've made good progress. I am my worst critic on myself for sure!
This afternoon, I grabbed a spot on another virtual race that wasn't in my plans to do but Moon Joggers has some leftover medals on sale so I couldn't resist! I'm going to squeeze in the themed Spaceballs 5k in February or if needed, March! I have been eyeing that medal so I caved.
I want to start working on some goals and challenges for my next coming races. The 10k goal is to complete it, nothing crazy, I don't even care about my PR as long as it's under 18:00 min/mile. I have a couple races coming up in February! I may squeeze in that Spaceballs 5k before the Froyo Run, we'll see!
- Froyo Run 10k (live event) on the 13th
- Running 4 Love 5k (virtual) I'm planning for on the 20th
- Leap Year Run 5k (virtual) on the 29th... for leap year!
