Running In Circles....

....it gets a little bit old. 

Sunday I ran so many circles I covered 3.54 miles. And yes, that means I didn't Run Naked and used my Nike app to track my distance. What can I say, I couldn't help it. I needed to know! But the awesome news is that just moments ago my new FitBit arrived at my house and I am like a kid on Christmas morning and cannot wait to go home and get it! 

It is just waiting for me to come home and get it!

Anyway, I ran circles Sunday and used my Tabata App to help me stay on track with the prescribed Run 2 minutes then Walk 2 min.  The plan called for 6 rounds but I had time to kill and figured 10 rounds would be fun. But I didn't want to venture out too far from where I was running since it was kind of stormy and LB was doing his CrossFit On-Ramp class there at the gym.

So I ran circles. A lot of them. 

And then this morning I found a nice street in the neighborhood behind mine that has the slightest bit of incline, hard to come by around here, and ran circles around the small block. This morning though I only had time for 6 rounds of the 2 min Run/2 min Walk and only covered 2 miles in 24 min.

I can see potential with this plan. Although the walk gets shorter and the run gets longer but I like the idea of playing with the pace and speed and getting more of a Fartlek type of workout in. It is reminding me a lot of my Run Less Run Faster plan from back in the day. Where you don't have to spend a lot of time running but when you do run you run faster, intervals and sprints. It works. 

I am enjoying getting back in the swing of things and it helps that the time spent is manageable. I can still get the kiddo on the bus, run, and get home in time to get dressed for work. I have about 20 minutes to get ready but seriously, that is enough time. So far so good....I'm still at it and adding a piece of tech equipment is only going to help! 

Off to take an early lunch and grab my new toy!
