Hello all of my lovelies!!
I hope everyone has been having a great weekend, I know I have been.
We've been having some rather gross and rainy weather (we even had hail the other day!). However, when I woke up yesterday the sun was out and shining. I strapped on my new sneakers and went for a run. I decided not to time myself or plan on any specific mileage- I simply ran. I concentrated solely on increasing my endurance, forcing myself to keep going when I wanted to stop. I managed to run the first 1.45 miles before I took a quick walk break (about 2 minutes) then I picked up the pace again. I ended up only stopping twice to walk during my run.
Out of the 3 miles I did, I ran a total of 2.55miles!
For me, that is ASTOUNDING!
My finishing time was 45:20 or so but I'm okay with that considering I almost got hit by vehicles a few times and had to wait at cross walks, etc. When I started feeling tired, I would slow my pace down to a trot but continue on as best I could. I'm actually super proud of myself. My new shoes, whether they played a part in my better running endurance or not, are fantastic. My feet were a bit sore after my run (because they are still getting used to the shoes) but my knee has been fine so far. I'm planning on going for a longer run tomorrow- I'm shooting for 5 miles. Hopefully the weather will be better and not so spastic.
A quick congrats to those who ran some races this weekend, including Wells L who had her Half Marathon. You go girl!
Also, stay tuned because I will soon be having MY VERY FIRST GIVE AWAY!!!
