going to bed after midnight meant that I didn’t actually leave the house til 7:15. oh well.
It actually wasn’t too hot.
my first mile was fine, but I was really slowing down during the 2nd mile.
My legs just felt heavy and blah.
so I decided to give the run/walk method a shot. I’ve heard great things about it, honest.
But there is just something about the “walking” that gets to you.
My running has been less than stellar lately.
Which is fine. I’m focusing on CrossFit.
and I’m happy with that. extremely happy with that.
but I tell you WHAT.
My run went SO much better incorporating the run/walk method.
I’ve never really read anything about the run/walk method so I have no idea if I did it right…
but I ran a mile, walked a minute, ran a mile, walked a minute, so on.
Of course, my overall pace slowed, but I FELT so much better during the run portion and didn’t feel like ASS when I was done. I felt like I could push myself during the runs, knowing that I got that minute walk break. I pushed myself up hills that I usually struggle with.
I was pretty proud of myself when I was done.
I even thought – if (IF) I ever run another marathon, I would seriously consider using the run/walk method.
