Just Running

Nothing cool is going on. Just kind of status quo. Yesterday I had to get home earlier because I wanted to watch the kids playoff game. I also needed to get a run in. Running has been kind of blah lately. I have lost like zero pounds. I do not feel like I am improving much. Still need to do something to kick start the drive again.

Since I wanted to do a kind of short workout I decided to go to the track and do what I think they call intervals. Basically you run as fast as you can for a short distance then walk for a bit to recover and then do it again. I warmed up with a 3/4 mile slow jog... then kicked in what ever burners I have for a quarter mile run. I ended up getting a 1 minute forty second quarter mile. I think my normal quarter is like 2:40 to 3 minutes.

It was kind of fun to do something different.. although I have to say throwing it all out there for a lap is WAYYYY different than jogging three miles. I had some serious aches in my side. I did my walk and burned another quick lap before giving up. I spend like 22 minutes running and walking. It felt like a good workout.

Things are gonna blow up soon but for now it is just kind of peaceful and boring. hence my lack of motivation in anything. Peace.

Scale is stuck here too. Just got over the sickness. I've had good runs the past month but haven't caught my groove. I need to find my mojo. Mojo, where are yooooooou? Hang in there, my webbed footed friend.

Quit judging the quality of your workouts by how much weight you lose. You could be gaining muscle and that can keep you steady for a while. Enjoy the journey. And I like that you are doing some semblance of intervals, only if you do them once a week and start slow. They are VERY hard. But you've got the right idea. Keep it up!
