low and slow

this morning I ran 7.3km at a really slow pace. I couldnt have sped up even if I wanted to. I just felt really slow.

I'd like to blame my leg exhaustion on my Insanity workouts, but I have been really slow (even though not as slow as today) ever since returning to running, as if I was not already slow enough before. The insanity workouts surely effect my strength and speed somewhat, and I guess within 3 weeks we'll start finding out how much is because of that and how much had nothing to do with it...

Weather was great

beautiful Friday runs are the best

great 14km run in beautiful weather, though slightly warmer than expected and slightly warmer than I preferred. I would have liked to continue - I went out considering a distance of 16-17km, but I forced myself to keep it shorter because I still have my Insanity workout to fit in.

What a beautiful day!

mid-day

another great, albeit slow, mid-day run. Beautiful weather. My run came immediately after a tough Insanity workout so I really felt the exhaustion in my legs. I didn't push it but I really wanted some fresh air and a nice run. And I got it

7km

another warm run

this afternoon I was able to slice out about 45 minutes for another great run in the beautiful sun. I ran 7km, again relatively slow. My legs felt really tired. Tomorrow I am not going to run. I'll force myself not to no matter how much I really want to

warm and sunny

7km on a warm and sunny afternoon.

This was basically a slow recovery run, after yesterdays 11km. As well, I am at the stage of Insanity where it is making my legs (and shoulders) very sore and tired, so I could not have mustered more speed even had I wanted to...

other obligations

we are done with the bad weather for now, though early mornings are still really cold. Daytime running in this weather is really fabulous.
Today I ran 11.25km in the brilliant sun and perfect temperature and felt like I could have kept going forever if I did not have other obligations to attend to...

back to decent weather

Got my first run of the week in, not including a failed attempt on Sunday.. I ran 10km on a regular route.. great air, slightly chilly weather... this week has been really bad weather for running, and I was really missing it. Whne today turned nice I was determined to get out for a run at some point.

running shirts

I was putting away my clean laundry and just noticed that I have returned to a situation I was in for a very long time where the vast majority of my laundry is running shirts..


perfect weather

awesome 16km run this morning in the beautiful warm sun..

I combined a few routes together - starting across Kishon, up Hayarqon and Hayarden with a circuit around Dolev, then down to Road 10 and Road 375 part of the way towards the satellites, then back to the shopping district of RBS.

Was perfect weather, which lead to an enjoyable run

beautiful warm sun run

this middle of the day running is becoming quote a habit! A late night last night made the early run this morning impossible. I did not plan on going out during the day - just figured I would run tomorrow instead. However, the opportunity presented itself and I grabbed it.

I got a 7.25km run in on a beautiful warm early afternoon with brilliant sun and fresh, clean, air. I love it

beautiful Friday run

it was way too cold at 5am to go for a run, so I decided to wait and run after my kids would be off for school. I went out at about 8:30am and it was beautiful, if a bit chilly.

I ended up running 14.5km. I wasn't planning to run that much - I went out expecting betwene 10-12km, but it was so nice I just decided to keep going.

crisp 10km

mid-day runs are great. Today's mid-day run was great, even with a few bad interruptions. Had to deal with a couple of scares of emergencies that thank God turned out to be false alarms. Even with those interruptions, the run itself was great.

I got a 10+km run in, around the roads of RBS. The weather was beautiful, if a bit chillier than expected. At least it was nice and sunny, despite the crisp chilly air.
