I loved this run.
It feels like the whole sessions are getting quicker now.
As I keep saying, I'm giving myself focus tasks on these runs. This time I focused on technique. I read the other night when my legs were aching that you have to make sure you're landing on the balls of your feet and that you have to make sure your shoulders are loose.
So today that's what I focused on because I wasn't sure if my legs were aching because of my running techniques or not. I figured out that I'm definitely not landing on my toes or heels so that's good.
I keep doing the meditation body scan techniques and I focused on the music too.
It was actually a good run. I ran way too fast on my first 90 second run as I realised I had run a much further distance than I usually do for 90 seconds! I quickly remembered why pacing myself is so important when I realised I only had 90 seconds to recover before my 3 minute run.
I paced myself good from then on and it went smooth.
Oh and on my last run a Doozer McDooze track came on! I see him play all the time so I thought one of his songs would be the last thing I wanna hear 😂 but actually hearing his voice in my ear gave me a good push, I ran that last three minutes at an awesome pace even though my body wanted to stop and lay down in the middle of the path 😂
It ended sooner than I was expecting. Time goes quite slow when you're running but feels very fast when it's over. That's weird isn't it?
Anyway, loved this run. I feel really good. I'm finding myself wishing I had a run to do on my days off, but I am sticking to this programme religiously and will do as I'm told because I know myself and I know I just get overexcited sometimes 😂
I'm a mixture of nervous and excited for the next run.
Running for 5 minutes will take absolutely FOREVEEEEEERRRRR
I can't wait to prove to myself I can do it though. Physically my body is doing it.
I find that running for a long time mentally is the bit that's hardest because of how my mind races. I just gotta practise my meditation with some real dedication now 👍
Anyone else feel that this is more of a mental challenge than a physical one sometimes?
