Run 56 I made 20 minutes!

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Today I ran a 20 minute interval! Woo hoo! It was hard mentally. I had to push myself a little, but I was sure I could do it and I just kept breathing and listening to my tunes. I have a co-worker who is a runner and has been encouraging me along, and when it got tough I just started thinking how I was going to go back to the office and tell her I ran a 20 minute interval, and how excited she would be for me, and how good that would feel. Then pretty soon I was done, and I got to go back and tell her. It was so cool!

Run 55 Slow Monday

Monday, December 05, 2011

I needed a little push today so I decided to run from work to home, and meet DH on the other end for a hug and a morning mocha. I miscalculated though, and reached home after only a 13 minute interval of running. So I kind of shorted myself on my run this morning. On the other hand it was an upwind slog all the way, and running into the wind is quite a challenge. And it was bloomin' cold too. Winter must be settling in. Total run time today, 13 minutes, 12 minutes walking.


Run #54 Best run of the week

Friday, December 02, 2011

It seems my run route is upwind at the start every day now. Today I ran 17 minutes (I was going for 18, but I miscalculated...) then walked for 3, then ran another 3. Total run time 20 minutes, 13 minutes walking. It was kind of challenging but I kept telling myself I could do it, and stuck with it. It felt really good afterward.


Run #53 The un run

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Well, as predicted run 53 stunk. Perhaps it was a self fulfilling prophecy, but I did go into it feeling very tired, and with a headache, and it was COLD out there today. I tried to bring a good mindset, but my heart wasn't in it, and the heart won. I tried changing up the route, but I guess it wasn't a good day to try that. Maybe if I had stuck to the old boring route I could have gotten further, because I pretty much know how far I can run on that one. Anyway, I ran for about 4 minutes, then walked for a couple, then ran about another 4, walked another two, ran for 1 minute, and then figured screw it, it just isn't working today. So I went for a nice walk in the sunshine and called Darling Husband and told him how much it stunk without him while I walked. I forgot my pedometer today too. So today's total is about 9 minutes running, a nice 31 minute walk. At least I got some exercise.


Mind over body-I don't want to run today...

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

I have to admit I really don't feel like going on run #53. I'm tired. I think I was really looking forward to having DH along with me on his first run, but he slept badly and is congested, so he wants to wait. I think I am really bored with my out and back route and I need to change it up some. But anyway I already have my running clothes on and I have to shower at work anyhow, so I might as well go get sweaty. So cheer me on folks, and I'll report back later. I don't think this is going to be an easy run today. Maybe I'll be wrong!

    getting out there when you don't want to is 95% of the battle so you already won! Even if it's not the best workout, it's still 100 times better than sitting on that behind and that's why you are successful, girl! Way to go!

    Good for you for just getting up and doing it. I'd still be in bed. And that my friend is why I can't do morning workouts. Hope it went well.
