So, I decided to work with a running coach again because I really want to PR in the 5K and half marathon.
Don’t worry I’m not setting unrealistic expectations for myself. Trust me, running keeps me VERY humble. Last night I ran two miles, and while it was probably my best two miler to date, it was still not as easy as I would like it to be.
The thing is I can FEEL how strong my legs are now. Getting back into weightlifting has made my legs powerhouses. When I run my legs don’t feel tired. Sometimes my calves feel tight, but that’s a totally different feeling than having heavy legs or tired legs. My legs WANT to run fast.
The thing holding me back right now is my endurance; my heart rate is higher than it should be for easy runs and I get out of breath really easy. I just know that if I can be efficient in getting my endurance back I’m going to be on the road to new PRs.
The best path toward efficiency for me is having a running coach. I like the knowledge coaches bring, I thrive when I’m held accountable and I just don’t like writing training plans. I’m excited to be coached again and to hopefully make some good progress this spring and summer so that I can, at the very least, run a half marathon this November :).
