There are only a few days a month where I feel like my faster paced running is good and solid.  Why is that? Is it because I’m a woman and hormones play into that? I don’t know. I should do some research on that topic.

I have been doing a lot of treadmill running lately, which is nuts considering I’m the crazy lunatic in my town that is always out running in every kind of weather imaginable. For some reason in my mind, it gives me more time if I run inside on the treadmill on days that I have to work. I usually am forced to do shorter runs, due to being tired or just not enough time. It is what it is. I used to have a hard time with that, but anymore, I just say “Meh, it is better than no running at all.”

I was slated to do a 5 mile tempo, but because today is a work day and I worked last night, I met the plan in the middle. I did the Tempo, but cut it down to 3miles. Am I cheating? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it is, but, for me it is more like making it work for me and my schedule.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are supposed to be my speed days, and I will just have to make it work even if it means cutting them shorter than planned. It all really just depends on what my work schedule is on a given week.  Soooo..

3 miles- 8:41 pace ( 26:34) Scheduled Tempo for 5. Cut short due to work.

I felt good cardio wise and leg strength wise. A little tired due to my sleep, but glad I got it done.

Off to put in my weight training training stuff. You know eventually I’m going to end up combining the entries again right? For now, I like it this way so I can see them apart from one another until I can get a handle on the rythym with the running part of this now.
