Energy Surge


Thursday, July 25, 2013

Today's run just felt so good. Don't know what was different. I haven't had any where I felt bad, just some where I was glad to get to the walking interval each time, but never unhappy to reach the run interval. But today I just listened to my body. It wanted to run. I didn't take any walk intervals for over 30 minutes. Once, well after I was warmed up, I cranked the treadmill down from 6.7 mph to 6.0 and didn't like it. I wanted to run faster! So I did. Feeling great! Wanting to capture this feeling; wish I could hold onto it forever and ever. Last evening when I did my low impact aerobic workout I felt really good, too. Hoping this energy surge lasts!!

    I recently did a training run of 5K and just ignored my pace and ran with how I felt. The energy was definitely there and I was shocked to see a new training PR! It happens! BUT, no matter what, I still embraced and respected the recovery period. Over-training will be hazardous to your health! Fuel well, train well, perform well!

    Isn't it funny how some days 6.7 seems just right, and other days it's a struggle to even maintain 5.5 or 6???? I did intervals today at 6mph, but I was ready for my walk breaks. Looking back, I didn't fuel my body well last night at all...lesson learned!

    That's great! Sometimes our work outs are fueled by what we ate right before or the day before. Sometimes we eat something that really fuels us and gives us that extra pep in our step.

Nothing like listening to your body in all ways and going for it when it feels right!
Enjoy the endorphins!

    Just a reminder to monitor how you feel for the whole cycle of run / recovery.
