A few nights ago I made a chocolate shake and drank it with my new glass straw from Strawesome 🙂

10:30am: Go pick up a new ipod battery in hopes that is what is wrong. Also stop at Big River Running 🙂

Spend the rest of the afternoon trying to figure out what is wrong.

Didn’t worry about speed but just focused on the endurance and tried to defeat the heat hahah….didn’t work.

    Do you follow a training program with your mileage, or just run for as long as you feel like it? I’m going for my first 5k, and have been reading blogs for advice.

      Ohhh a 5k, how fun! I make my own training plan because following a training program doesn’t cater to your body but just a general population. I do a mid week long run usually on wednesday and a long run on sunday because my weeks start on mondays. The long run is 20% of your weekly mileage. Currently I’m building for the cross season so I’m just at 20 miles a week so my long runs are 4 miles and all my other runs are 3. I’ve always been told not to run any shorter than your race mileage will be. So if you can comfortably run 3 miles right now then don’t run anything under that. But if you can’t then gradually build up because you don’t want to injure yourself. If you are going for a PR for your 5k then I’d throw in some speed workouts(mile repeats, fartleks, intervals), same thing if the course will be hilly then maybe some hill repeats. I would do a workout twice a week to get your speed up or even just doing 100m sprints more than 4 times just to get a feel of going fast and working your muscles to adjust to the speed. But with the weekly mileage in high school we usually ran 25 miles a week, but in college it varies on the person. I’ll get up to 35 miles per week at the end of the summer right before my season. But you want to gradually increase your weekly mileage by 2-5 miles per week so you don’t injure yourself! 🙂 Hope that helps!! Good luck on your 5k and feel free to email me back if you have more questions! I love running!

    I’ve been looking and looking and looking for reusable straws! I really wanted to buy them in person rather than online, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to resist now…they have such cute ones!
