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.
