shaved 6 mins off my 3 mile

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

So i decided to try 3 miles on the trail by our house and i thought death was near lol. However, thats obviously because i have a difficult time pacing myself not on the treadmill. On the treadmill i set it gor 4 mph and cycle in some 4.2's now and again. Ive done it in 49 and 44 mins. Today i did it in 38!!!! My splits for the miles were 12:20, 12:42, and 12:54. My speed at the end was a 7 something min mile. Im def going to need to work on regulating my speed whrn i run outdoors. there were times that my jogging got so slow and desperate i probably could have walked backwards quicker lol. On the treadmill u dont notice now slow u are compared to the world but outside i felt like i was inching along so i wld try to go faster. I also had my bag with my wallet, keys, water bottle, and towel on my back.... plus i went to bob evans this morning (farmers egg white omelet). I might be throwing that back up. I am trying to fight it but it is NOT sitting well right now. Lol as much as i feel like a hot mess, i am still proud of what i accomplished and am looking forward to sun.

    Great job! Sorry about the omelet - sometimes the heat/humidity can be a bear to run in around here! emoticon

    I always run faster outside too. It's definitely a lot harder to regulate your speed out there! You should be super proud of yourself for doing so well, though!

    I know!!! Maybe one day ill travel further away and we can do a race. Arent u near IL or OH??? I cant remember exactly where ur at. Hopefully in oct ill survive my half marathon and can do longer races lol. I ran today without music or anything. I know ur not supposed to during races so i thought id try it. That made it tough. At the gym i usually watch tv and it distracts me. Today my thoughts were very loud telling me my heart was going to explode lol. Im gonna run next time without my bag. I didnt stop to drink water or use my towel so it wasnt really necessary.

    WooHoo! That is awesome!
I reluctantly am becoming a runner...
I am doing an official 5k training, even though I can run further than it calls for, I figured I would try to make it look like I am all serious. LOL!
My Droid, my Adidas, Pandora with the Pop & Hip Hop Workout station playing, and my new (fabulous) Interval App and I hit the road this morning. It went great! It was so hot that I looked like I showered DURING the run.
I wish we lived closer =)
I would do the 5k with you!
