Low low low…


I am just at an all time low at the moment. So difficult to go to the gym. I just don’t enjoy the gym anymore. I like the feeling of just running free and just enjoy the morning air.

Just focused on speed this morning. Really did not feel like running on the treadmill so had to keep it interesting. I challenged myself a bit :-). 6:35 mins per km, not too bad from my previous 7:15. Also managed to run through a whole song, was never really able to do that on a treadmill, felt good!

I wanted to do the Om Die Dam 10km on Saturday, but now my running partner is injured :-(. Really don’t feel like doing it on my own, will see how I feel on Saturday. I also need to at least get another long run in this week, so perhaps it would be better to stick to training programme rather than racing this weekend???

Duration: 48mins
Distance: 5km (speed training)
Calories burned: 480cal

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
