Hurricans and the track

This hurricane is killing my training schedule. Ok that is not completely true it is just making it more boring because I have to run on the indoor track. Yesterday was my first indoor track workout since i started training and let me tell you I learned a lot! So yesterday was a 6 mile run aka the farthest I have ever run in my life and I did indeed run the whole thing with no walking! However there is no proof of this because I found that when I hit the track runkeeper went crazy and told me that I had covered a mile in one minute...not true I'd be flying. Second: long runs on a track that takes 9.25 laps to equal 1 mile feels like it takes years! I'm telling you trying to count how many miles you have completed and how many laps within that mile you have completed gets super confusing really fast! Third: I might have been the slowest person on the track but I ran 6 miles in 1 hour and 12 minutes I am impressed with myself! Fourth: it is easy to be consistent in speed on the track because I get less distracted.  Fifth: by the time I hit mile 5 I was like well what is one more right? I hope that attitude sticks around forever! Sixth: Music is more important! That is my track running experience and until Sandy passes and the sun comes back out I will continue to have them.

This week I covered 13 miles in total. That is how many I am shooting for all in one run aka half marathon! This weeks run should be 4, 5, 7 which would put me at 16 miles for the week. I must say I am liking this running thing more and more as i keep going.

How did your workouts go this week?



  1. Veeeery nice on completing the 6 miles! It does certainly get boring to be running indoors. Music is so so so important to me!

    1. What are you listening to while running? Right now I am on a Katy Perry pandora station kick...guilty confession out there.
