What is the difference between “jogging” and running?
I admit I’ve commit too many brain cells to this thought. There I something diminutive sounding about jogging, like I’m going out in a cute leotard and sweatband to listen to my iPod for an hour instead of running, which sounds like a serious workout.
I don’t care what the answer is. I’m in the camp that if you set out for the joy of moving with less than one foot on the ground most of the time … You’re doing a serious workout. You can call it running.
We did speedwork at track tonight, the first time this season, I think. Our coach defines speedwork as “moving faster than your mile time” and yeah. I did that.
It was the first time in a long time that I felt that chest sucking burning feeling while running. I am not used to that – most of my runs are at talk test level. It was uncomfortable. I only spent about 16 minutes actually running, split up with about a minute of walking between each interval, but it was tough. There’s a reason he calls it agony pace.
I wondered if I am really capable of running the mile time I ran in April today and this the workout was too hard. I’ve had a down month. I know my insecurities are in my head, and if I could get past them, my performance would improve, but gah! Getting over insecurities is part of athletic performance, just as much as athletic conditioning is.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is that I know I’ve been putting in the workouts this month but I question the quality of those workouts. I haven’t had a good one in awhile.
