slow 6

 Altra Paradigm

I was only going to run 5 as I was slow and it was hot, but as I was approaching the 5 mark I said why not do 6, so I did. 6km in the heat. slow but felt ok most of the way. a bit sluggish near the end

hit 10

 Altra Paradigm

Hit 10km on my run this morning, and it was not in my plans. I was hoping to be able to run 9, resigned to run 7-8, depending on how my run would feel after yesterday's fast. I  felt decent, not particularly strong but not sluggish either, and as I was approaching 7 I felt I could take it to 9 as originally planned. As I was approaching the end of the run I realized I would finish at 9.5km, unless I stop early and just walk home the last bit. I figured that if I am already running 9.5 I might as well extend it a bit and hit 10, so I did.

good 8

 Altra Paradigm

good 8km run this morning. Dont get me wrong, I am still very slow, but the run felt good and I was able to extend to 8km without feeling like I was overdoing it.

Motzash 5

 On CloudFlyer

Motzash 5km, nothing god about it other than me being out there. Slow, pit stops, out of sync, hot and humid disgusting weather... but still on my road to recovery

up to 7

 On CloudFlyer

Pretty good 7km run. Felt good throughout. I really wanted to run yesterday but legs were just too tired. I almost went out anyway, especially when a major power outage hit and I couldnt work anyway, but I am happy I didnt - today's run would probably have been miserable had I forced myself out yesterday

weak 6

 On CloudFlyer

went out in already hot weather. was feeling tired and procrastinated. The 6km run itself was good, better than expected, but it felt weak and somewhat sluggish. That's ok. I made it through.

up to 6

 On CloudFlyer

was out and having a decent run and then I remembered I had planned to start extending my runs, even though I am still pretty slow. I debated for a bit if I should extend today or wait for another day, and then I decided that my run was actually going along nicely so I might as well extend today already rather than postpone and pick another day. Had it been a struggle because of having run last night or whatever, it might have made sense to wait for a better day, but it was a good run, so the thoughts going through my head to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday were just bad excuses, so I did it. A slow but solid 6km run.

steamy 5

steamy 5km Motzash run, super slow, in hot, disgusting, humid, disgusting, weather

better 5

 On CloudFlyer

Still slow but feeling much better out there, feeling like I am back to running. Today, while still very slow, I felt stronger, felt more stable, felt more like I am a runner. on particularly difficult sections I felt myself running harder rather than falling into a shuffle. Overall felt very good. 5km early morning run before the bad heat settles in...

5k shuffle

 On CloudFlyer

I was so slow tonight I am not even sure I can call it a run. More like I went out for a 5km shuffle!

If this week goes ok, I will probably extend my runs further starting next week

5 into the 6s

 Altra Paradigm

I ran a bit past 5, but really it was a 5km run, but I ran into the sixes, both in distance and pace! Finally broke through after running my first few runs in the 8s and 7s, not I broke through into the 6s. Form a distance perspective, I probably could already run six or 7 kilometers but wanted to use the 5 distance to work on getting some strength back. When I feel like I have gotten my strength back and am running stable, then I will increase my distance.

For today, a nice 5km in the warm morning sun, after a lazy morning had me miss my planned early run.
