Woah. This just got real.
90 days is a pretty short amount of time. I don't know that I have ever been able to make great stride in 90 days. Good thing I'm not just now starting.
What I did yesterday. Didn't write a blog post. I was just way too busy!
I woke up a little late because I had set my alarm for 6:02 but forgotten to change the setting to "Weekends" so it was still set only for weekdays. Ugh. But I did wake up at 6:18 and stared at the clock thinking, is that a 5 or a 6? It has to be a 5, it hasn't gone off yet. I squinted further, and then just got up to take a look. No the clock isn't across the room, I just have very poor eyesight.
After a series of mishaps, I finally got started with my run around 7:45. I checked out a trail I had never been to before, but at which I had actually volunteered a race once.
Total for the day: 13.6 miles; 2 hours 37 minutes; avg pace 11:36.
Today it's pouring down rain. I have a 75 minute cross-train on the bike scheduled... but I am seriously contemplating moving that to tomorrow morning. I just love not doing workouts on Sundays!
Impediments: None really... my foot has improved so much. I still get the tendon tightness and soreness while out on long runs, and it's noticeably inflamed when I'm done, but it doesn't prevent me from doing the workouts anymore. I'm still taking it quite a bit easier than before, I mean, I'm only running three days a week, but with that little adjustment (combined with slower easy runs), I feel like I can perform at about the level I was before as far as mileage per run and tempo paces.
Today's thought comes from Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) which I am currently listening to on Audible.
So it turns out that keeping your eyes open is the key to learning to ride a bike.
Well said, Mindy.
