Run #74

Friday, February 24, 2012

It's the end of February and the weather here has been getting warmer. We are back in the 50s-60s for my runs in the morning now. Today I went running in shorts and without a fleece for the first time in months. One can begin to hope winter is over. I ran my new route again today. I went a little farther to compensate for the to an fro in the park. I did my 20 minutes but that was it. I have a feeling I have been slowly picking up my pace without knowing it. I will have to keep monitoring. I have a couple good weeks of turning in 20 minute intervals now I think, and I want that to start increasing again. That or I guess I could work on faster.

  


Run # 73 Went somewhere new

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Today I started off on my usual run. My left knee felt a little sore and at first I thought I might have to abort. But it loosened up after a few strides so I kept going. I got to the end of the park and just decided I was not going to go the same route as always and see all the same things. So I turned around and ran the other direction. That turned out to be upwind, but today was pretty warm so the breeze was nice. It has been so warm recently that I am either going to need to run earlier, or get my shorts out again. I was just too hot. But I turned in a 20 minute interval. It was a bit of a struggle today, but I won.

Run #72 Jogging along

Friday, February 17, 2012

Today was more of a mental challenge but I figured I could turn in at least 20 minutes, since I seem to be building a solid base there. I just kept telling myself I could do it. In the end I did 22 minutes. Yay! I still have to figure out how long my route really is. Today my pedometer said 2.12 miles. This is kind of aggravating. Anyway, it is a beautiful day out there, the sun is shining, it's a 3 day weekend, an I got a raise and a bonus today. Life is good!

Run #71 Cold and windy

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

It was cold and windy but I went out today anyway, with an added scarf and gloves. The upwind portion only knocked 2 minutes off my run. I ran for 21 minutes; I think I did 23 last time. I thought that was pretty good given it was blowing 10-15mph. I stayed surprisingly warm. And I felt good the whole time, because the whole time I really felt like I could do it. Some days the battle is all in the head, but today there was no battle, which was really nice and made the run feel good. I can now see myself closing on my goal of being able to run for 30 minutes and it isn't that far off, though it may take a few more weeks. That is pretty cool.

  


I got on the scale today

Saturday, February 11, 2012

I knew the last two weeks weren't kind by the way my pants fit. I'm back up to 153 . Wow that was easy. Less food more exercise. Time to buckle down.
