Last week was a slow running week unfortunately. I started the week on last Tuesday with a short 3K run, but I really hate everything shorter than 5K. The first couple of kilometres I always struggle so much in my head. I can’t find peace and quiet just yet, honestly thoughts like “why am I doing this” “what should I make for dinner” and “how does my calendar looks for the upcoming week” keep up popping up. But after around 5/6K I pretty much thought about everything and can just focus on running and the surroundings.
So luckily I had some time to do a 8K run last Thursday where I really tried to focus on improving my pace. Due to exams I didn’t have time for another long run in the weekend, I know, lame excuse and I also really regretted not having planned in the time!
Hey, by the way, did I already told you guys that I signed up for the NYC marathon? After reading all the updates on Annemerel and Girls Love 2 Run last November, I thought I would just give it a shot. Not everybody makes it through the lottery, but signing up was only 5USD. So what to lose, right?
