After yesterday, I think I’m addicted to running in the trails. Or basically anywhere but the route I’ve been taking. I can’t believe how making a change in scenery can really improve my running. I had been doing my runs in the same area for about 3 months now, which as you can imagine, became more mentally challenging the physically when I had to do my long runs.
So today, I decided to hit the trails for my 3 mile run. According to my training plan, these were supposed to be at an easy pace. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t hold back. Maybe it was because I was on a new trail or I was just having a good day, but I just couldn’t run at an easy pace. I ended up running at more of a tempo speed, which is running at a speed in-between sprinting and a normal pace. Needless to say, I was SWEATING. On the agenda for the tomorrow is…. 6 miles! Should be fun 🙂
