One of the features I noticed in Strava the other day was that you could scroll back through past weeks and see a rolling calendar of days associated with workouts. I don't use Strava much, but my workouts autoload there so I check it out a little. As I was looking at my past weeks of running, I noticed a very obvious trend. Monday's, not real motivated. I have a sprinkling of workouts. However, Tuesdays and Wednesdays I have a strong history, and a decent finish to the week with some Thursdays and Fridays in there as well. The weekends, if you follow along, are my rest days and whatever fitness I get with the kids, yard work, races, and such.
Using my new found information, I want to get that scrolling workout calendar filled more, especially on Mondays. It really is a good day for me and I think it will set the trend of the week more positively.
Today's run, I got out for a blustery 5.5 mile run at comfortable pace. I didn't look at the watch until I finished and just went for distance. I ended with a pace of about 8:09/mile and finished in 44:47.
Tomorrow, longer run of 8 miles planned. Nutrition needs to be dialed in soon as my legs and cardiorespiratory system is progressing well. However, I am carrying around this fat ass and it's slowing me down.
Time to back away from the feedbag, particularly the peanut M&Ms.
