This week started my 10k training and it’s been good so far. I’ve had a couple bumps in the road, but hoping to work at least one of them out in my next workout.
Monday: The plan for my workout was to walk .15 on every mile, run the rest, and then a cool down. My foot actually went to sleep after a certain point and I began walking because I was afraid of falling all the treadmill. It’s aggravating, but it is what it is. Does anyone know why this is happening?
Tuesday: The plan was to run four miles. I was doing well and going to make it until my foot went to sleep again. I made it to 3.5 miles before I realized I needed to walk. It’s aggravating, but I looked into it and I am hoping that loosening my shoes will help next time. I tried to run again after my foot settled, but when I started running again, I became dizzy. I know that doing more miles means I will have to change other things as well, such as, diet, but I didn’t think I would need to this soon. I am keeping tabs on my water though so that’s positive. Water intake and tracking can be hard at first, but it definitely becomes a habit after a while.
I do feel positive that I’ll make it to the 10k. With God, all things are possible. God has given me this ability and I am grateful and motivated.
Wednesday: Sadly, I didn’t get up and do morning miles on this day and I didn’t do anything later either. But…..I had an amazing Bible study session with my best friend that evening so that’s the positive that I am taking from this. We are reading through the book ‘Anxious for Nothing’. If you’re reading that right now or have before, let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
Thursday: Since I have been having issues with my foot going to sleep after I hit a certain number in my miles, I just walked on this day. I think I also just walked because I was tired and didn’t want to workout to start with. When you don’t want to workout at all, tell yourself to just go for a walk. It will at least get you going. If you’re like me, most of the time I will get some running in after I’ve gotten started. 🙂
Friday: No morning miles this day either. I have honestly been struggling with this. I got off track a few weeks ago and haven’t been able to get back on it again. I also haven’t been reading my ‘Good Morning. Good Life’ book as regular as I want to either, but….I have been reading my Bible and doing Bible study things at lunch which is great!!
I do need to get back to morning miles for this week though. I have great things planned in the evening and so I really need to get up and get my runs in early. Plus I am working on that 10k, so I need to get my runs in more so now.
Also, one of the girls in my youth group had a birthday on this day, so I am wishing her happy birthday once again. 🙂
Saturday: My workout was not a full count, but I am counting it because I am definitely sore today. We took the church youth group to a trampoline park and wow! If you’ve ever been to one, you know how much of an actual workout they can be. You honestly don’t know how hard you truly are working because you’re having so much fun, but the day after, you’ll know. Tomorrow will be worse I am sure, but you know what? It was worth it! If that could be my workout everyday, I would gladly take it. I did think about getting a trampoline again. Would that be acceptable for an adult??
Ohhh! Happy note. I bought new Asics. I have several pair, but I have a black pair with some white on them that I loved that basically go with everything. But I loved them so much, I wore them out. I wore them to a certain race in 2019 and afterwards, my feet were killing me. So they needed to be replaced. New shoes means motivation right?
Sunday: No workout as of yet. I may do a little bit tonight as far as weight training and things like that. I really need to get that going again.
I seriously feel like I have been saying I need to start back with morning miles and weight training over and over again. I say that and then the morning comes and I just have the hardest time getting going. What is happening? Please share your struggles or your tips for success in the comments. Let’s motivate and help each other together. 🙂
Until next time.
