Week 2, 11 miles logged, big smiles all around
Saturday, July 02, 2011
Since I ran about 10 miles last week, I wanted to add my 10% and log 11 miles this week.
It didn't look like I was going to be able to. This week was crazy busy. I had to work. Also, I ran around a lot. Hubby and I bought kayaks on Monday and had to buy tags and such; however, we're all set now and I'm super-excited to float the river next week! :)))
It was a difficult week for me. I'm not sure why, but I have been in a bit of a funk this week. Rather depressed and stressy and moody and such.
Monday evening, I logged 2.7 miles, and then yesterday I ran 4.3. It was ridiculously hot yesterday! Rocky and I were supposed to have our weekly workout this morning; we were going to bike today. I was happy about biking, but I knew that I wouldn't be able to fit in the rest of my running miles this week if I biked. He wasn't able to make it though. Since I was already up, I couldn't go back to sleep (bummer--I could have used some more zzz's), so I made myself lace up the running shoes. This is when I knew something had changed in me. It is not like me to workout like this, to push myself when I'm not motivated. I'll thank my SparkFriends for my new found gumption. :)
Today's tally: four miles, 48 minutes...
12-minute miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wahooooo!
Next week, I'm upping to 12 miles; I'm planning on dividing it over four days. I would loooove to maintain an 11.5 minute mile next week. Here's hoping I can!
