I just wasn't feeling it and was tense the whole time and knowing I still had one more shift to work wasn't helping things. So I called it quits and decided to switch up my long run day.
Monday's weather was perfect for running and I had a window of free time so I laced up my Mizuno Wave Riders, swung by Angel's house and set out for a nice Garmin free run!
Monday also kicked off MOT football season and tryouts! So proud of Chase and I cannot wait to see how he grows and develops this football season...I am totally a football mom for sure!
I had planned to take Tuesday as a recovery day but decided to do the stair machine for some stress relief and interval training...My gosh I sweat like a man when I am on this machine!!! I also made sure to do my PT exercises and core work.... We spent the day at the pool with some of our favorite people:
Today I had an great meeting with an amazing running coach who I have so much respect for! This made me even more determined and excited to train for MCM. I have always been the type of runner who has just went out and ran....I sometimes set goals but they are goals that are really truly not challenging for me. I want to step out of my comfort zone and really push myself this time and see what I can do...With his help I am sure I can do this...Hopefully!
I tend to be my biggest critic and enemy...It is now time to change that!!

This run felt fluent and way better then my past 2 runs! Yay!! Some core work and major stretching afterward.
Anyone else running MCM?
Anyone ever work with a running coach?
