Happy 45th Birthday to me!!

I woke up this morning planning to run 15 minutes on the treadmill again but after I went outside and saw how gorgeous it was I decided to give myself a birthday gift and run 3.1 (5k) miles! What a nice run. It was awesome!

Still running...

I decided to change things up a bit this week. I am running every day (Tue - Fri) for 15 minutes. I am going to try to run 5k on Saturday morning if the weather is nice. I am learning I do not like running on the treadmill!!

Glad I ran...

I struggled with whether or not to run this morning. It was only 42 degrees out and I wasn't sure if I wanted to run in the cool weather. But I am glad I went ahead and ran. I ran a total of 3.29 miles in 41 minutes! I think that is a personal best! My 5k time was aprox 39 minutes...definitely a personal best!!

Today...I like running...

Today was a good day! I felt good while I was running and I was able to run 2 miles in 30 minutes and 30 seconds! I started out at 4.2 on the treadmill for the first mile then slowed it down to 3.6 for the rest except for a push at the end to get to 2 miles. Go me!

Learning a Lesson

Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson while I was running: Don't run with out a plan! I started out on the treadmill knowing I was going to run but not really thinking about how fast or far I wanted to run. About 13 minutes into my run I wanted to QUIT bigtime! I did manage to push through and finish 30 minutes and almost 2 miles but it was HARD. Lesson learned, next time I will have a plan.

I love running in the fall!

What a gorgeous day out today!  I ran 2.9 miles in about 40 minutes.  It was hard at first but then I hit my stride and felt like I could have gone on for quite a while longer.  I was at the end of my route though so I didn't run more.  I was bummed that I didn't hit the 2 mile mark but that's ok, there's always next time!!
