In case you didn't know, the East Coast got a few inches of snow yesterday. You know what that means....treadmill runs. Boo.
Tuesday I had 4.5 miles on the agenda. I tried, I really did, but I just wasn't feeling this run. My legs were still sore from this weekend's workouts and I just couldn't find my stride.
I even turned on some music that was sure to pump me up.
Haha. Don't judge me.
After 3.5 miles I called it a day. Better luck next time. I was in my sweats and on the couch watching Sex and the City within 15 minutes.
The motivation today was a bit better. I had a 40 minute tempo run on the training plan.
This was the first song that came on......it was a good sign. :-)
I started at 6.5 mph and went up to 7.6, then came back down. 4.6 miles in 40 minutes. 8:41 pace.
During my run, 2 teenage boys came to the door. When I opened it, and they saw me dripping in sweat, they both looked at me like I was crazy and took a step back. I think they practically ran away.
I guess I did look a little rough.....they should have read my shirt and realized the sweat dripping off my forehead and chin wasn't nasty, it was just me being awesome.
A quick lunch came together right after.
Turkey and avocado, veggies and sweet potatoes. I'm trying to up my carbs these days and see if I feel a difference in my running.
Butter Lemon Whole Wheat Noodles, baked chicken, and a spinach salad.
I think dinner helped me hit my quota.
When was your last "blah" run?
Do you make an effort to eat more carbohydrates? If so, do you feel a difference?
What's your current favorite song to run to?
