Discovering the "Run"

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

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!

    You should be so proud of yourself! I still get a real sense of accomplishment after running (no need to distinguish between running/jogging - you are doing it no matter how fast you're going! You're a RUNNER!!) even 3 years after first starting it up.

    And you need to remember that we all have good runs and tough runs and sometimes just plain ol' bad runs...but what is important is that we just keep going. :-)

    Good luck!!
