Run #121

Monday, July 16, 2012

I had a rough aikido night on Thursday an when I got home everything hurt. Everything still hurt on Friday and I was exhausted, so I settled for 800mg of ibuprofen and skipping my run. This turned out to be a good thing, because I was still exhausted and hurting on Saturday. It seems like I may have a pattern here of about 3 good weeks followed by a crash; it's not entirely clear yet. Anyway I got up feeling better this morning. I get dressed and went for a run, because it is Monday, and that is what I do on Monday. I thought briefly about taking another day off, but then since I was already dressed to run, I reminded myself it would feel good, and it was something I do for me, so I went. It was a nice run.

  


Run #120 Still at it.

More intervals today, a fast block alternating with a slow block. Chalked up another half hour. Not a bad run. That's all to report.

  


Run #119 More intervals

Monday, July 09, 2012

Today was back to work after a lovely week off. It is so easy to get used to not working! I did intervals again this morning, mostly running at different paces, but I did tuck in a walk interval when I felt I was panting too much. It was a pretty good run.

Run #118 A new record

Friday, July 06, 2012

Today I went 3.5 miles, my longest run yet, in 35:49, which means approximately 10.14 minutes. This includes my 5 minute warm up walk, and a couple minute walk in the middle. This seems fast, but that is how the numbers come out. Anyway, I had a good run and a good finish!

Run #117 Anniversary run

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

This week marks the one year anniversary of my starting to run! In honor of that today I ran 5k. It was a pretty good run. Because I have the week off I slept in, and didn't leave until about 9:00 am. Boy the temperature difference between 6 and 9 am is pretty significant! Fortunately there was a pretty nice breeze, but even that felt hot at times. I refilled my water bottle twice on my run, which I never do. Amazing to think that a year ago a two minute interval was really tough. Now I can actually run 5K (well, given sufficient motivation, which sometimes lacks...). How cool is that! emoticon
