10K Training Tuesday: Week Five

Monday: Nada
Tuesday: Zilch
Wednesday: Zero
Thursday: 1.25 miles
Friday: 2 miles
Saturday: Nothin’
Sunday: Still Nothin’

So.

This was a not good week on the workout front, as evidenced by the information above. I don’t even want to call them “rest days” because, well, they weren’t in the traditional sense of a training plan but calling them “lazy days” isn’t entirely accurate either because it’s not like I was choosing to be lazy. I wasn’t choosing to move through the week like I was a slug lost in a fog.

Luckily it feels like that fog is lifting and I went for a 2 mile run before work yesterday which felt wonderful, so we shall see how it goes in the coming months as winter settles in. The one benefit to the time change was that there was daylight during my run!

But, I did realize there is one thing I haven’t talked about yet: My new shiny toy!

I’ve been wanting a Garmin Forerunner for forEVER and thankfully had some extra money come through that was enough to buy one. Up until now I’ve always used some free app on my phone which is never accurate with distance so my pace is never correct, either. I’ve been running in my neighborhood enough to have a good idea on distance but then I’d always have to go online and find a pace calculator and it was just a million extra steps. This way I can get a clearer picture of how I’m doing.

Love from the ashes,
