Weekly Roundup 4.4-4.10

Week 5 of 12

This week I ran a comfortably fast 5-miles with Dave at Run Club, nailed a speed workout, ran 6 total miles with the pup and decided half way through my long run that I was going to run 10 miles instead of 8.  Overall a good week, but still not satisfied.  I’m having a hard time finding the motivation and confidence.

I will say this though—after marathon training, I am LOVING half marathon training.  Running fast is fun.  Running fast also hurts.  I know if I want to PR in Buffalo, I’m going to have to push myself in training and step outside my comfort zone.  I think because of that I’m not excited to get out and run everyday.  Never fail—once I get out there, I feel fine.  It’s that initial “I don’t want to do it” that’s holding me back.

Other highlights:

·      I received a new pair of xx2i sunglasses through the BibRave Pro ambassador program.  The Bermuda1 is the first xx2i casual model and I LOVE THEM!  The fit is perfect (big sunglasses make me so happy) and I’m digging the blue polarized lenses.  The Bermuda1 isn’t even available for sale yet but if you’re following me on Twitter @jenskiba, I’ll made sure to let you all know when they are.  And don’t forget to check out my Discount Code page to find out how you can save 50% off at www.xx2i.com.  Full review coming soon…
