Still Running!

Saturday, July 07, 2012

Just completed my third week running (woohoo!). I run on alternate days (three times a week) and I have not reached the point where I really enjoy it yet. I am hoping to get there and I know that the only way to get there is to keep at it, be consistent!

The trail I run is very hilly, I'll take a pic just to show everyone how hilly it is. It is about 3.8 miles and it takes me 35 minutes to run it now. The first day it took me close to an hour. The last hill is always the hardest, I have to keep telling myself that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. To me, that's the only way to conquer that hill. And of course I also have to remind myself that I am not going to die, even though it always feels like I that hill could kill me.

On days when I don't run, I walk about 4.89 miles, takes me 1hr. I am so tempted to run this longer route, but I want to take it slow. When I get to the point where I am comfortable with my current route, I will take it up a notch.

Have a great weekend everyone.

    Finally you are running! Yeah! BTW, you do not have to run continously, you can put walk breaks. Google Galloway Method. I have a timer now and do intervalls, at the moment 5 min. run 1 min. walk. That is easier on the body but still burns at least the same number of calories, sometimes even more.
    BTW, that's a great time! I run about the same when I run on the hills of Loresho

    Miss you, but am so crazy busy, don't get around to calling anyone
