To go the distance

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I completed my first 2KM swim yesterday! 2KM!!!!! That's huge for me! I've been working on 1KMs for the past few weeks and have moved it up... and under an hour!

My concern is my running though. I have no problem running 2 or 3KM at a time, but need to get my body into running longer distances. Because of our lovely Canadian winters, I was trying a treadmill and then a track (realizing the track is much better for me as the treadmill to track transition was so unreal! So, back to the track it is). But the track gets a bit boring. To run a mile at our track, we do 8.75 laps. Ugh! Perhaps if it was a longer track it would be better... but wondering if anyone out there has any tips and hints. I usually don't run with music as I like to try to run with a clear mind (the only time my mind is still), but am wondering about a adding a podcast or audio version of a book or program to keep me going... any tips?
