Frustration. This is the word I would use to describe my running as of late. Traveling every week has really taken a hit on my body. My biggest concern is that my arch starts to hurt after a few miles on the treadmill, but I’m being smart this time and stopping once I feel any pain. I’m not too nervous yet, I know that my body isn’t used to this. Fingers crossed that once traveling is done, my body will get back to normal.
Monday: 3 Miles
Tuesday: Rest Day
Wednesday: 2 Miles (Stopped short)
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 3 Miles
Sunday: Rest Day
I really struggled with getting anywhere close to the miles I was supposed to run this week. I found this shirt, and decided from here on out, I’m going to have positive training.
Well, it must have worked. Saturday morning I woke up to snow and decided to “brave the run.” I ran my fastest training run yet. There was something peaceful about running snow covered streets in the countryside of Wooster. I had negative splits, and I may have even had a smile on my face. Here on out there will be good training runs. Goodbye negative attitude.

I hope this upcoming week goes better for you! It’s definitely challenging training in the elements, let alone traveling!
Sounds like your run Saturday morning was just like mine!
I hope the coming weeks of training go better – we can talk about it tomorrow!
