Just run…

Distance: 3mi

Miles to go: 1570

Didn’t get a chance to run while I was down south in West Plains so I’m short a day this week.  I suppose I could have but I didn’t.  No excuses.

Tonight was Traknight and it was a bit different.  We went out for (X) minutes and then stopped and turned around and came back.  The goal was to try to come back and hit the line in the exact same time.  Sounds easy but it’s not.  Great for working on pace though.  We did 2:30, 2:00, 1:30, and 1:00 out and backs at 5K pace, with the last one just being all out as fast as you felt you could go (and make it back…!).  I pushed it and tried to hit my quarters for the first two in 1:35 or less and hit the 1:30 at exactly a quarter mile.  After that, the 1:00 was mostly trying not to pass out…

As I look at the next month, I don’t have a ton of stuff on my schedule as I prepare for conference season.  I am going to try to edge up my mileage just a bit over the next month.  Not much, maybe 5 miles a week or so.  I don’t really know why, I just want to.  I still am not “training” for anything, which kind of wigs people out for some reason.  Isn’t it OK to run for fun and fitness anymore or do we HAVE to be training for a race?  Meh… No matter.  I just giggle and trot on.  I’m going to give myself the rest of the year to just run.  Maybe I’ll run a race… maybe not.  Right now I just wanna run.
