I have started my new training schedule this past Sunday along with trying to meet a deadline at work. Yikes, this week has overwhelmed me. Focus, Focus, Focus! I have had the hardest time staying focused. It must just be winter, well that's what I keep telling myself.
What do you do to keep focused?
The weather was pretty tolerable, I feel for you runners North East of Texas. I did not have to run on the mill at all this week. My runs this week were all to be done nice and easy. I am building up mileage on my legs and trying to set training paces. So, I ran 2 miles 22.03 on Tuesday, 3 miles 32.02 on Wed and 2 miles 22.02 on Thurs. Friday was hecktic so NO run. I did 6 miles 64.05 on Saturday. All my runs felt pretty good.
Coach Kelly is working on my training schedule for next month. I have been doing self coaching since I came back to running. And I think I am doing a pretty good job. But you know it is so easy to get confused with everything you read. Especially when you are ready to step up your game and not really sure how to do it. So I am thrilled to have someone else telling me what I need to be running and at what pace. Thank you Coach Kelly!
