I decided not too long ago, that I’m not going to run the Giralda Farms 10-K this year because 1.) I’m taking 20 credits this year and it’s kicking my butt and 2.) I still need to work on my time management and am missing too many workouts during the weeks of training to make any difference from last years “lets wing a 10-K” race.
However, that won’t stop me from running my University’s free 5-K race in November. I’m still going to workout out at least 150 min/week, but I just don’t have the time for a strict running schedule. My education is a little more important than a 10-K PR.
So from now on until the semester ends I’ll be doing whatever workouts my heart desires, that includes a comfortable run as well.
