My key to running

Leave a comment

My running lightbulb went off last night as I ran the dreaded slow incline of West End Ave. I have been running pretty darn consistently for about three weeks now, but noticed that my runs were not getting better or easier. The last 5K I trained for seemed to go so much better!!

So last night I was determined to have a “good” run (as good as running can get, at least), and I did!! Here was the key. Pacing. I know it seems like common knowledge, but it also helped my mood. I literally thought of nothing else but my running and my pace, not allowing myself to go faster. I didn’t even realize before how much my mind was reeling during my runs! So from now on, runs will be the time to clear my mind, worry about nothing, and think about nothing. Why can’t all the time be like that…..

pretty sure this is what I look like running
