Today was another fine day in terms of consistency with my running. Week 2 of my marathon training plan is drawing to a close! Exciting stuff. I’m happy and proud of myself for getting this far. I really struggled with going out this evening. (Yes, still evening instead of morning running. Really looking forward to getting my act together in the mornings so I can reap the benefits of running in cooler temps.)
Sometimes, in regards to going out for a run, I am like that kid who’s pretty good in a subject and so he/she thinks maybe they can let the weekend prior to blow by without studying and then just cram the night before, AND still get a decent grade! ..But, they still wouldn’t do as well than if they had studied that weekend! It does always make a difference.
So, yeah, another run in about 24 degrees heat. Not too bad at all since I left it so late into the evening. My time for 8km today was 46:35! at a smooth pace of 5:49! Now, I really need to get with the program in terms of my maintenance stretching and running in the mornings….looks like it might not happen again today, lol, but hopefully, tomorrow isn’t too late!
I had a few hollas at me this evening…I guess I’m doing well, I’ve triggered some people to yell at me out there sweating buckets all by myself hauling ass. It always reminds me that some people will always be the ones in life yelling some unintelligible “smart” remark as they whiz by going (at least) 50 miles an hour at people who are actually standing out and making the solo effort to get up and DO something to make changes in their lives.
Right on. (Does it even occur to them that I can’t even hear what they’re saying while zipping by at that speed anyway? What do you do on a Friday night?) 🙂 …I’m looking forward to the weekend however, I’ve got my long run this Sunday! 😀 (Btw, I can’t say or type I’m looking forward to the weekend, which is a natural thing for me to say, without thinking of that Rebecca Black song… Does that make me old? A sixty-something-year-old songwriter for pre-teens? Lol. On that same inquiring note, do people still write lol anymore? I do.)
Also, just want to thank the people on here for all the recent Likes and Follows 🙂 It may not seem like much but it helps to encourage me. Similarly, I hope that all of your fitness and/or personal goals and endeavors are going well and progressing!
Today’s song is a good old 1980s tune (long version): Money for Nothing by Dire Straits.
And I believe it’s cheques for free, not chicks for free, however, it could really have been both 🙂
