So just last week, really only a short time ago but it feels longer, I started running. Jogging really, but it has left me with a feeling of accomplishment as I go out and beat the run (jog) I did the night before. I'm still learning the tips and tricks of running. I know interval running makes you stronger, I know that you should rest up between runs and I learned how to breathe properly so I don't have to stop because I can't breathe. Last week I was so proud of myself. I have an app on my iphone that lets me gauge how far, how fast and how long I am running (jogging) for and from starting at 2.5km on sunday and ending the week on thursday with 5.06km I was on top of the world! BUT unfortunately I went away for the weekend and couldn't get any running in until last night (monday) and I was so disappointed when I could only go 3.5km and that was walking the last km! I've chalked it up to what I ate just before I went running but it was still disheartening! I'm not going to let it stop me though, I know I can do a nice 5k and I'm determined to do it every run! But this is why I would be greatful to know and use all the great tips and tricks, so that I don't give out when I come back from a break!
