Helllooo!!! Remember me? I’m still here… been plugging along and finally back to running! You can see my updates on my Instagram!
I need to do a ‘catch up’ post of what I’ve been doing because its really important in general for my health and wellness and I want to share it with you mostly for your learning!!
For now though – I finally went to the local running store and got NEW shoes and a new pair of socks!
These are the Mizuno Wave Inspire 12 and Balega hidden comfort socks. I love these socks – they are made in South Africa and super soft! I usually get a neutral shoe, but the guy at the store was noticing a little pronation in my right foot so we went the safe route. Bonus is that local running stores have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee! I love getting personalized shoe fitting!!
So what is the plan? Well the plan is to RUN. ha. My current goals are:
- Sprints 1x per week. anywhere from 6-10 30 second sprints.
- long sprints/mini tempo. 400-800 tempo intervals for now.
- Working up to a 5k. nothing strenuous but run/walk build up.
I have been doing some sprints off an on the last few months but am going to start tracking my progress. I would love to do a couple 5ks this summer, so we will see if I can slowly build up to that. I don’t really have bigger goals than that at the moment. I want to see how it goes getting back to running and how my body feels. its been about 3 years since I have run consistently so I want to take it slow! Plus I’m a few pounds heavier than I was a few years ago! My goal isn’t to compete right now. It is just to have run being back to running and getting my endurance built back up and helping myself get healthier!
Have you returned to running after a hiatus?
