A Little Push
Actually I probably need a big push, like a full grown Bengal Tiger chasing after me. But I did force myself, against all the lazy voices inside of me, to get down to the treadmill and do something. I ran 3 miles yesterday so pushed it up to 4 today. I practiced doing sprints and was happy to see that I am capable of running much faster, at least for 1 or 2 minute bursts. I know that is the recommended method for increasing speed, so I'm going to try to keep that in mind as I try to ignore the lazy voices inside my head. It's really still a little too disgusting outdoors to do any kind of useful running. So I will stick with the treadmill for a while longer. At least with it I can force myself to run faster. I may not ever get up to the speed I would like, but at least I would like to get back to the speed I was able to run the last few years. I've been letting too many other things interfere with my workouts and it is really starting to show. Gotta MOVE!!!
