I was completely energized this morning as I turned off the 5:30am alarm. Today was the last day of week 3 in my preparation for my first triathlon. And promptly at 6:00am the rain began. Time to bust out a good book and plan for a later time.
I’m not against running in the rain. But I am against running in the rain without the proper gear. If you’ve read any of my older post, then you know I probably don’t have the gear. And, I don’t.
Fortunately my work day ends at 4:00pm today. That gave me time to get the workout in afterwards. We have this really well made greenway close to my work. It was the first time I was able to use it. Normally it’s just too far away from home to use. Especially at 6:00am in the morning.
I had an awesome and dry training session. I am now running at 1 minute intervals with 30 second breaks. I hit 3 miles of distance today and felt energized rather than tired. My mental take on running is also changing. I keep trying to think like a child when running. It actually makes it fun at times.
Tonight we had whole food plant based alfredo which was awesome. One out of three kiddos liked it. That’s three out of five around the table! Progress! Tomorrow is rest day so no updates tomorrow (like anyone is actually reading this 😃).
Week 3, Day 6. Done.
