It's All Mental

Today's Run:
On treadmill
Max HR 194
Average HR 160
Time 30 minutes
Distance 2.4 miles?
Speed 3-6MPH

Wow today's run was a lot different than my last run. I did five minutes less of cool down and ran for 20 minutes with no walking. It is so hard after having that break, my legs were hurting a little through the whole run and it became very difficult to breathe after 10 minutes. I think my max HR was for the last eight minutes of the run or so. So I think I'm going to do two 10 minute runs the next time I run and then go to a 25 minute straight run the following run. from there I can do three 25 minute runs, then three 28 minute runs, and my 30 minute run. Once I'm there, I think I just need to get my speed up. The race I'm going to run is in the beginning of September, so I need to be able to do 5k by then. I might start to run outside soon, but only once a week to get ready for it.

I'm still amazed at what our bodies can do. I was off for about a month and feel like I can get back on track. I'm glad I wen back a few weeks I don't want to risk injury, and this feels challenging, but good. I can't wait until I can run 30 minutes again!

Time 30minutes
Distance ? miles
Speed 3-6MPH

Today's Run:
On treadmill
Max HR 191
Average HR 149
Time 35 minutes
Distance 2.4 miles

That was too long of a break! I hope I don't get injured like that ever again. It is so hard to run, I went back to the 5th week of my plan so I can rebuild what I've lost in the last month. It feel s like the right place to start, it's hard but not so hard I need to quit. I need to stay on track now because the Shorewood Scoot will be here before I know it.
Speed 3-6MPH

Still Hurt

I'm still hurt and need to go to the doctor, bummer. My lower back is killing me and my shin seems to be fractured? I guess I'll find out if I ever go to the doctor. I know I should go but I don't have the best insurance. We shall see. Until then I'm not running and I hope that I can at least start going back to the gym and get back on track.

Injured Again?

Still no running for me my leg is not better. I was going to run yesterday and didn't have time but when I ran into my house to get something the pain was back. It is in my right lower leg and goes all the way through the shin to my calf. My big fear is that I will hurt myself and not be able to run and here I am. In the morning (if i get to sleep soon) I'm going to the gym so I can do some other exercise keep the heart training.
