Running: Sneak It In

There has been a lot of “sneaking it in” over here these days………

5K “Runch” on Monday

Bummed out about my run.

Today:

Conference Call / Wall Sit….why not?!?!?!

And stair repeats on a rainy day {Tuesday}.

Wall Sit Sneak It In

I’m planning another “runch” – I just love this term…two of my favourite bloggers (Run Salt Run and Pirate Bobcat) have recently used it so I had to as well. Run + Lunch = runch 🙂

I’ll admit….right now I am not really feeling the motivation to run at lunch today. But I have all my gear and I’m going anyway. Will write more after I run.

As I was getting ready for my planned 5k, I knew I wasn’t feeling it but I got dressed anyway, I went outside anyway and I started my Garmin anyway. I started running and the wind was cold and strong against my body. I kept going one step at a time.

I decided to not run on the sidewalk that I’ve been running on lately and wanted to test out the trails. With it being Day 10 “Run a Trail” in the Run This Year challenges I am doing….I thought why not.

They say…..Run a Trail … so I did! Pavement, dirt trail and snow! YUP, we still have snow in Nova Scotia!

Run On Trail Day 10

 

I ran as far as I could on the snow and decided to turn back around. It was a beautiful day and I started focusing on my pace and pushing it a little. I wasn’t hoping for a Personal Best or Personal Record. BUT, this happened:

{In KM: 5:42; 5:49; 5:50; 5:45: 5:37}

New PB Anna

My last PB was 29:34 last Friday – you can read about it here. However it was a hilly little 5k and today’s run was flat. Flat-As-Can-Be! This is the fastest 5k I have ever run since I started running around 10 years ago. Yes, I’ve been running on and off for 10 years – more in the last 5-6 years. My absolute best time was 29:16 in Halifax at a “Run for the Cure” event when I was around 22/23, I think.

So, I’m pretty pumped today!

Runners – how many years have you been running?

Does anyone “Runch” ? (Run at lunch)

Do you sneak in a little workout while at work? Desk yoga, stretching, walking meetings, lifting weights, stand up desk?
