As of lately, I've been up in the gym working on my pace. I desperately want to run a 7:59 mile and its appeared to be quite the feat. Honestly, I'm not even sure where that goal originated from, but my stubborn spirit won't let it go now...so I've GOT to get there. :)
I'm averaging about an 8:28 mile right now, and that (for me) is AMAZEBALLS. I honestly can't even believe I'm doing THAT.
I mean, it's pretty self-explanatory on the treadmill...you amp up the speed. The problem with that is I don't appreciate feeling like a sack of potatoes my entire run. Uh-uh. No bueno. Feeling on top of the world is more my style.
What frustrates me beyond that is when I run outside, (where you think I would be more motivated) my pace TANKS. It's like a 600 pound weight decided to drag behind me and I suddenly hit +10:00 miles. It's the stupidest thing...but I have some sort of phobia with running outside. I get into this hopeless mood and all I can think in my head is, "I'll never make it back."
Mind over matter, I know. Maybe it's just a bad attitude...but there's something comforting about my treadmill, being able to watching Cake Boss, and having the ability to stop whenever I please that motivates me to move faster.
Anyway, tips appreciated on that if anyone has any! Now, for the REAL fun. Workout clothes are the bomb.com and I cannot.stop.hoarding.them. Here are a few favorites!
