It’s Getting Better All the Time

It’s the name of a Beatles song I enjoyed as a kid, but I find myself saying this to myself as my speeds are finally starting to come up a bit on my runs. I’m not nearly as fast yet as I’d like to be in six weeks, but I know that the real improvements will start coming soon enough.

I performed well enough during HIIT exercises with my military unit last week, but my long-distance running is still slow. I will continue with HIIT once a week and two-three longer, slower runs. According to everything I’ve read, this should help improve my run times.

I also need to reintroduce my weightlifting. I think I’ll be ready for it in March. Until then, I look longingly at my weights and rack, looking forward to the day I can start using them again.
