Training Update: Physical and Mental
Last week was the first time in a while, I had any inclination to run. As I’ve mentioned, the last few weeks have been extremely busy for me (outside of working out). In anti-runner blogger form, I didn’t miss running in the slightest.
Working out has been anything but at the top of my mind lately. Yet, I’ve gone to the gym a few times, and somehow I have found time to maintain a running blog while not running. Oddly enough, I still enjoy blogging.
Due to the nature of how busy I’ve been this month, I’ve been out of the running store for most of May too. Mentally, it was probably good to be out of the store although I do miss my friends and coworkers.
Anyways, back to workouts! To be honest, I had to look back on my Instagram this week and remember exactly which days I did what.
|Tuesday:||Short Core workout|
|Wednesday:||Short Core Workout|
|Thursday:||1 Hour Strength Class|
|Saturday:||1 Hour Strength Class|
|Sunday:||1 Hour Elliptical|
Yesterday, I ran 4 miles with my brother. No watch, but probably around 10 min pace. I felt okay. Is it the start of running again? Maybe, maybe not but he asked if I wanted to run and I said ok.
Throughout the years, this blog has taken many different turns.
I’ve blogged through college…
I’ve blogged through working in a public health office…
Most recently, I’ve blogged about working in a running store and well, running!
As my life and interests evolve, so does blogging! I’m not saying I’m giving up running competitively and I’m not giving up blogging, but it’s important (for me) to take a step back and say: I need to do this for myself, not how those on social media want/need. Fueledbylolz is a journey of my life and training. I originally started my blog to reflect upon my journey not to make a career or please readers (although it’s great to find people who share similar interests!)
With all of this rambling, this turned out to be more of a mental update than a training update but we need those too.
In short, last week was a good workout week for where I’m at in life. I’ve already run this week and it was ok.
