After an extra day of rest after my Saturday long run in back at it. It’s crazy to think that 1 week ago I ran in like 40° colder temps. We’ve had a pretty mild winter in Michigan. At this point there is no be telling what marathon day will be like, which is all other more reason to be hitting the pavement regardless of what the weather is like. During my run this morning I enjoyed listening to my running worship music but I also took some time to lift up the many medical needs of those I know. It seems like these days terrible medical conditions are constantly all around us. I’m thankful for the gift of an awesome eternal life free from…
I’m starting to feel like I’m getting back into the groove of running again. The biggest thing for me is that I need to have a plan for running. Early mornings are really the best time for me to get a run in. In order for me to be motivated to get up early, and not stay in bed, I need to have a goal and a plan. I’m not sure if I’ll ever truly be at a place to simply run for the sake of running, and that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy my running. For most things in my life I just need to have a goal or plan. #HWI #Run4Water #RiverBankRun #SocialDistanceRunner
After still not quite getting much in for running the last two weeks I decided to just start a new training plan. For me, I need the motivation of a plan. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a matter of if I don’t have a plan I won’t run, it does make it harder, but it really comes down to just not wanting to have to figure what I’m going to run every morning. With a training plan there is no question of what am I going to run, I don’t have to think about it, I just get out there and do what the plan says. Besides starting a new training plan, something that was said to me the night before, in regards to…
Enjoying our first campfire for this summer. It wasn’t the first one this year. Enjoying the holiday weekend with family as well.
No PR today on my long tempo run but the but I also don’t feel like I over did it either so that helps me to know I could still push myself to a faster pace or keep up that pace for a longer time/distance. Unfortunately this morning was one of those where my mind got totally lost in the run itself. I have days like those and while I enjoy the running I also want to be taking that time listen to God and lift others up to Him. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water Donate To Clean Water
Felt great to be back out with my running partner, it’s been too long. Looking forward to our half marathon on Saturday. I enjoy being able to run and chat. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water #SauconyRunChallenge
