Back in the saddle...

Somewhere around week 4 of my 5k training it hit me - - why in the heck am I training for this in the first place? I was feeling a little worn out and tired of running so I pushed *pause* on all things Couch-to-5k.

After a bit of a break, I finally started the bootcamp I blogged about last month. This week marks the start of my 3rd week of training and surprisingly enough, the constant cardio has reignited my desire to run again. I think the fact that I'm forced to run 1-1.5 miles during the bootcamp sessions and actually saw that I could knock out my runs in under 9 minutes inspired me. Now, I don't think I'd run my 5k with the 9 min mile group... maybe push it to a 10 min mile so I could set a nice pace... but just knowing that I can run non-stop and finish made me smile.

I have 2 weeks left in my bootcamp and will be sad to see it end. I'm actually debating whether I want to pay the full price and continue working out. I just love being with a trainer, even if it's not 1-on-1, and having someone not only encourage me but push me to my limits and a little further.

I tried hopping on the treadmill last week during one of our rainy days and it bummed me out. After running outside for a few weeks it's hard to get back on a treadmill. Man... treadmills just do not cut it.

Sidebar: I want to send a HUGE congrats to my bff Sexyandthechi for completing her 1/2 Marathon last month!!!! So proud of her for knocking it out.

Bootcamp sounds fun. Well, maybe fun is the wrong word, but it sounds like you're glad you're doing it and I'm happy you've found something you like.
