Running Day 2

Sunday, September 02, 2012

When I got out of bed this morning I decided that if I didn't run today, I might not move at all tomorrow! We went to church and came home, then straight to the track. Today instead of walking to the school, I conserved my energy for the run on the track.

Here's how it went:
Laps 1-4: Walk 1/2, Run 1/2
Lap 5: Walk whole lap
Laps 6: Walk 1/2, Run 1/2
Lap 7: Walk whole lap
Lap 8: Walk 1/2, Run 1/2

But, here is the really exciting part to me, my mile yesterday was 16 minutes and today it was 12 minutes! That's F-A-S-T!! Well, for me it's fast!

I'm tired. I have several places that are sore - those ligaments that hold your legs on, I don't know why they hurt - my abs are more sore than I thought they would be, and my legs are just generally sore/tired. So, not too bad. And my feet don't hurt which is great!

Yeah Me!
I'm a runner! emoticon

    That is fabulous! Do you have a proper cool down and a good long stretch after? Stretching is so very important to prevent soreness and stiffness. Sparks has a video of stretches just for runners, check it out!
You go girl!

    Yay for you! It's interesting to hear what bits of you hurt. With me, it's the hip bones! You did great! You'll be signing up for a 5K in no time!
