Morning Run - Get your arse in gear

I just finished a 6.689km running that lasted about 0hh:38mm:27ss !

I really need to just get up when the alarm goes off. It is too tempting to check my phone to see what has been going on overnight. All I really need to do is ensure I have some podcasts to listen to. I was slightly later getting out, but it is light anyway now. It looked like it had recently rained, but I did not get wet.

I was doing the 30-20-10 intervals down the cycle path again. I need something to get me working harder than just jogging. You can see I managed some variation in pace. Getting down to 4:30/km for short periods is what I need to be doing.

It certainly felt like hard work and I was very sweaty when I got back. If perspiring is good for you then I have done plenty since I started running at all times of year. No sauna required.

I will aim for another long run at the weekend. It would be nice to fit in a half marathon for this month.

Run free and stay well.

You mean something exciting might have happened.. like HIVE went up by 1c? 😀

Or I may have got a nice vote :) I could really wait until I get back to check.

*When someone tells you that what you want to do is impossible, change the word in your head to hard. What you want to do is hard. Hard is doable – it just requires dedicated work and effort and you can make it happen.

Enjoy a !BEER in the meantime...

My workout was cut a bit short this morning. I still got my mile in at least, but I have to say I am a bit disappointed with how it turned out overall. I did the walk/run/lift thing again yesterday, so it was probably good to take it a bit easier today anyway. It still drives me crazy when I know I am not pushing myself as hard as I could be.

Shame about that. We need to get the most from our workouts, but other factors can hamper that. Just have to try and do better next time.

Yeah, I am getting my second dose of the vaccine tomorrow morning so I could be down and out until Monday or Tuesday.

I've not have my first jab yet. Should get it fairly soon.
