I was nervous about publishing yesterday’s post because I thought you guys might think, SHE’S FLOUNDERING, WTF, WHY WON’T SHE STICK TO A PLAN.
That’s likely my own insecurities manifesting though.
On one hand I feel like I’m making concentrated efforts to use this time between training cycles wisely. I’m not exactly using it as “down time” but I feel like I had plenty of that just a few months ago. Instead I’m using this time to explore different training options, but all with the same goal of getting faster and building a better base before June. On the other hand I feel like I just flip flopped when I’m only a couple of weeks into a plan that I previously thought would be perfect for spring training.
The question I have asked myself a million times is, “will switching to this Hansons base building plan now really help me improve?” I think so. I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t think it was a better option than what I was doing before. It’s really a switch to help me accomplish two goals at once: get faster and be better prepared for starting a Hansons plan this summer. I’m telling you, that Hansons book is really persuasive!
Last night was rainy, it was humid, it was hot, but it was everything I’ve needed it to be.
I didn’t realize my eyes were hidden until after the fact!
You know how sometimes immediately after a heart pounding run/workout you gotta snap a pic for the blog/social media, but you’re not really seeing what you’re doing? Eyes are kinda blurry and unfocused while you quickly take the pic? Yeah, that was me last night ?!
Speaking of awkward pictures, if you’re not using Snapchat you’re not fully living your life. Here’s proof:
Who doesn’t want to look like a raccoon?
I’m currently obsessed with DJ Khaled’s snaps. If you’re not from Miami you might not know who he is (although I think he is internationally famous now…), but his snaps are the best!
I can’t link you to anything on snapchat, but you gotta trust me on this and follow him for the funniest motivational snaps! Here’s an article the NY Times did about his snapchat!
Shameless plug, also follow me on snapchat: @kristinarunning :).
(Is this whole blog a shameless plug asking you to be my friend??)
Anyway, it’s Friday and I intend to have a great weekend and I hope you do too!
Final thought for the week:
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
What are you most excited about for this weekend? Sleeping in tomorrow! <3
