Some of you commented that I am using a FIRST training plan. You are right, I am. I looked at numerous training plans and wasn't sure what to do. It's summer and I'd be fine continuing my 5-6 days/week running schedule. The challenge comes this fall when I do my student teaching. I have no idea if I'll have time to run much, so I picked a training plan that only has three runs a week. I'll follow it during the summer and once student teaching starts I'll do my long runs on the weekend and whatever I can during the week. I am hoping I can continue following the plan, but only time will tell if I'll have the time, energy and mental clarity for much more than "just" running during the week.
This morning I just wasn't feeling it. I tried to pull out all the positives I could and I still had a hard time for the first four miles. In hindsight, I think it was TV show I had on (many of the scenes were at night with low lighting and it was a quiet episode). Time to find something new to watch when I run. Perhaps I'll catch up on Weeds (I only watched the first two seasons). Today: 2 mile warm-up, 3 mile short tempo run, 1 mile cool-down. I'm happy to be done with my run for today!
