I have been running for about 2 years now. I built up slowly from being able to only run about 30 minutes, to now being able to go more like 45 minutes with some intervals (big stairs, a lot of stairs, really a lot.. and hills) but I feel like somehow I could really push myself to do much more at it.
Firstly I have no idea how fast I'm going. I know my summer route seemed to take less time than it used to today. I don't even know how far I'm going let alone how fast! Maybe I need some kind of gps tracker thing. I did take a quick look on amazon but the Garmin ones were over $100. I haven't got that kind of money to spare right now.
Also, I found my run this morning a bit hard. I wonder if it's because I've been eating less carbs the last few days. I did have my muesli this morning before I left. Or maybe I overtrained yesterday. Anyway, I would like to be able to run further. I don't know why.. I guess I need a goal, something exact to work towards. I will ponder this. I know where I want to be weight wise, but not fitness wise. I just keep going through the motions.
