I have to say that I have refound my love of running. I admit that I had a few weeks of 'eh..... it's run time'.
The schedule my friend made is pretty aggressive. Which I am happy for. I told her I needed something to push me, I had been checking my Garmin dashboard and I had no significant change in 1 year.
I like having a set schedule and the fact that I will be accountable for doing it. It's so easy with no schedule, to go out and not run as far, or as fast as you should. And I think I had been doing that for longer than I like to admit.
I am on week 2, and it's a 50+km week. I had an appointment Tuesday, which turned it into an unscheduled rest day, so tomorrow that should be my rest day is going to be a run day. But even after the first week, I feel stronger. I am excited to see what results will come.
