I’m finally over the week 7 hump. It only took me three weeks to finish it.
1st attempt: Monday, 1/27. Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill
no running the next week.
2nd attempt: Monday 2/10. Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill. Wed. 2/12 ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill. I planned on running 2/14, but just didn’t. In-laws were here, we were heading out of town for the weekend.
3rd attempt: Wed 2/19. I ran 4.5 miles OUTSIDE!! If I thought I could have, I’d have ran 7 miles. I didn’t, mostly because I hadn’t ran for a week. My feet were soaked from the slush, but it was otherwise good to finally run outside. Fri 2/21. I ran 7 miles OUTSIDE! I really debated this one. The sun was shining, but it was windy. 24-35 mph windy. I still did it. Some of the times while I was heading into the wind, I was actually walking when I should have been running. The wind was that gusty. I couldn’t run. I could barely walk.
Off I go to start week 8. Hopefully it won’t take 3 weeks. The sun is shining, but it’s pretty darn cold, so off on the treadmill I go.
