Almost May Wednesdaily

Ahhh the last day of April. I am ready for a new month. My foot is feeling slightly better. I might try and go for 2 2 mile runs while I am in KY this weekend. A far cry from the marathon I should be doing this weekend! But I am over it. I just want to get back to running as quickly as possible w/o furthering my injury. I have been wearing good shoes all week and taking it easy. Hopefully if I can go 2 miles w/o it hurting, I can continue to do 2-3 miles for a week or two and then ramp back up. I think with running since I will be forced to cut my mileage down due to injury and also due to the HIM schedule I am going to work on speed and hills. Two things I suck at. I would love to be able to consistently run 7 mph. I have done that before, but everytime I head out for an hour run, it’s more like 6. something. I think my Tuesday run will become a track workout. Brock and I were talking about checking out the second sole running group track workouts on Tuesday. I have always been chickent to go to track workouts, but I have done a lot to step outside my comfort zones the past few years, why not this? Also, Beth sent me info on a cycling group in Shaker Heights. I reached out on their message board inquiring about the speed of the group and my fear of getting dropped and got so many nice replies back, so I am going to try and conquer my fear of group rides next weekend. Should be interesting. I better get used to my new cleats first!

I can't tell you how life-changing it was to join a running group three years ago--even though I was one of the slow ones at first. I went from running 9min miles to sub 7:00s in a short amount of time just by doing organized and coached track and hill workouts. Seriously, the breakthroughs can be amazing! Step out of your comfort zone girl!! That's what it's all about!!!
