I had an o.k. run yesterday.... It was on the treadmill because it's still too flippin' hot and humid to run outside. Literally even if I run at 6:30am my heart rate will sky rocket. I'm still on lower mileage runs.... so I'm very thankful that when I get into higher mileage runs the weather will be cooler.
I feel like summer is never going to end.....
I've even started dressing like fall - if I dress like it ---- it will come..... The field of dreams theory right?!?
So - Here's my question today.... how do I become a faster runner?
I'm terrible...litterally terrible... I know I know..... time doesn't matter.... but I would really, really, really like to work on my speed. Is track/sprint work outs helpful? What works?
I'm meeting with a coach on Friday to possible train with for my 1/2 marathon and 1/2 IM.... I'm super excited. I can still join the tri-club (which I haven't done) for group workouts. I think this is going to be important... I can only push myself so far... I need a Jillian...scream in my face; yell at me; tell me I'm fat...something to push me to that next level. I'm hoping if this works out and she is my coach she can help me with my speed (or lack there of)
So tonight is a 2 easy 2 mile run..... A long way to go before 13.1...but I can do it!
This weekend I have a 4 mile run... I have run 4 miles in months... hoping the weather cooperates b/c I sure don't want to run 4 on a treadmill....
Oh - I added my posts on how I got into tri's, race reports, etc over there <-------- on the side bar... check it out - it will link you to the old blog site.
