Run #113 Another lousy run...

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Well, today was yucky too. I did intervals of walking and running.
OK Universe! I deserve another good run!

Run 112

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

This whole commute to work thing is interfering with my blogging about my runs. Yesterday was kind of a slog again. Another 2.25 miles. I did it anyway. That about sums it up. Will try again tomorrow.

    Better that it interfere with the blogs than the runs themselves.

Run #111 Not quite as easy

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Yesterday's run was more challenging. I actually had a couple walking intervals. I did about 2.5 miles. Since I blew my last day to walk to work on Thursday due to an insomnia attack, I decided to run to work and back as a last good bye. Not really much else to comment on. I normally blog this from work, but we had no servers yesterday, hence the late posting. I'm fast closing on a year of running, wow!


Run #110 An awesome run!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Today I finally went for my first run post 5K. I really expected that after 10 days it was going to be challenging. Plus I woke up at 3:30 and could not go back to sleep. But I put my togs on and headed out. And you know, I started running and it felt good. And it felt easy. And that made me feel happy. And that felt good too. And it just kept on feeling really good, and it never got hard. It felt almost effortless. It was so cool, because I was having a really hard time all last week and this week getting my head back in the game, but I was determined to run today. I only did about 2.25 miles; Ifigured since it had been 10 days I could ease back in a little. And I came back not tired, and feeling great. This is really good for me. I need it. What a terrific run!

    Yay!! I have runs like that from time to time - it's so nice because it makes you remember that you run because you love to run! The distance sounds perfect for getting back into it.

Resting up but stay tuned...

Thursday, June 07, 2012

After my 5K I crashed. I don't think it was actually the 5k because I have run 5k quite a few times before. But I was exhausted from my week, and then there was all the excitement, and I didn't sleep well the night before. Everything hurt for the next two days! I did mostly nothnig the rest of Sunday. Monday I did not a lick of exercise and everything still hurt. Tuesday I slept in again, but I did aikido in the evening and got a good sweat on there. Yesterday I just really didn't feel like a run, so I went for a bike ride after work. Today I walked to work. Tomorrow I am planning to get up and run, but I have to confess at the moment that has absoutely no appeal. But I plan to get up and put my shorts on, and after that I might as well run. I think the stress of the upcoming move at work is really getting to me. I just feel exhausted... Trying to savor the last few days of leiesurely mornings, sneaking out for coffee with hubby, having lunch with hubby every day, and being able to walk to work, or drive in 8 minutes with no traffic. My world is about to change, and it is hard to see any upsides, and in general we are both down and stressed about it...
