Run # 145 Light on my feet

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Today was just a fun run. I felt really light on my feet and it felt pretty effortless. The first half I just felt like I could run foreverl Nothing hurt and breathing was easy. The second half I know I slowed down a bit but it was still good, and felt good. I still think I am getting a bit faster. How cool.

  


Run #144 5K, All mixed up

Friday, October 12, 2012

I ran 5K today for the first time in a while. I have yet to download my Garmin, but I think my speed is improving since I added the bicycling. At one point I was averaging 5.8, which is definitely a record for me. The flip side is today I got a stitch in my side for the first time. I was able to mostly walk it off in a couple blocks and still finish my run. So I think the first half was a good bit faster than the second half. Ah, new things to deal with. It was a great run! My hips are pretty sore now though.

Run # 143 Of bikes and running

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

No run on Monday. I skipped it to go for a bike ride with DH after work, but then he didn't feel good. So we went for our ride last night, across island and around Bay Farm, 12.5 miles. I thought I had done 13 before, but I can't find the record of that, so I guess this was my longest bike ride yet. It was a good work out; the upwind leg was a killer. I was pretty wobbly legged the last few miles.

This morning I got up and did 2.5 miles. It may be an illusion but I think my time was faster than usual. I was back in 32 minutes. Course, I have been pretty slow lately. Tomorrow is definately a rest day. I am tired, and a bit sore.

Run #142 Best run in weeks

Friday, October 05, 2012

Today was my best run in weeks, since my hips started hurting! I managed a 25 minute interval and felt pretty good the whole time. I had to do a little bargaining with myself the last couple blocks, but it was good. The stretching is really helping and I am much less sore and am staying that way. I also ran MWF this week, the first time I have done three runs in a week in a while. Hooray!

  


Run #141 What a glorious day!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

After the hot weather the last couple days the morning was gorgeous and cool with a nice breeze. I was pleased that my hips weren't too sore to run. The extra stretching seems to be really helping. I did have a somewhat shorter run, as my hips did start to get a little sore. And today was just kind of a challenge. But I'm not sore now...so I think I did the right thing. I still got my half our of exercise in and another two miles. And I still don't hurt.
