Happy Tuesday - sometimes it can be a Blues day. Other times is a Good News Day! Today I am have felt up & down all day! Crazy emotions day for me!
I did my 5K training last night. I walk/jogged 2 miles in 22 minutes. I am pretty happy with that time. It has been a while since I was really out there! I have a new armband for my phone/music. It worked pretty well, except it started feeling really tight towards the end of the run.
On the outside, I look like a real runner. I have running shoes (finally), dry-wicking socks, running pants, running tank top, sports bra, arm band! But I don't feel like a true runner on the inside. I wish I had the dedication to out a few times a week! I have so many other things that I do, and I can't stick with it somehow!!
Hopefully I find at least once race to in the next three months. One of my friends asked me if I am signed up for any 5Ks. I am not right now, so I looked into what is coming up soon in our area. There are about 10 different races between now and Halloween that look pretty good. She might run with me! I never ran with anyone before. I really want to step up my training - especially if I am running with her. I don't know how well she would do in a 5K, but I know sometimes she walks for 10 miles! I don't remember the last time I went that far in a day! Depending on how much training I get in, I will probably tell her that we can start out together, but she can go on ahead if she wants to!
Although I do like choosing my race days a few months in advance, I also feel a little bit bad when other plans come up on those days! Many people are last minute planners. I hate turning down plans with family and friends because of a race day. I wouldn't skip a race unless I really HAD to. Usually the races are early in the day, so I can do things after.. but sometimes I get really tired later on in the day! I have a lot of energy after the race, but then around 4 or 5 o'clock I usually feel drained!
Tomorrow is kickboxing. I think I am going to go every Wednesday for now. I would like to do one other fitness class every week. I want to start at that pilates place also. I have 10 fitness classes & I can pick any of them. They have pilates, spinning, zumba, and a few other classes. I might try a Pilates for Newbies class first to get used to the facility. I can always ask them about other classes once I am there.
Hopefully everyone has a fantastic rest of the week! Keep pushing towards your goals. I made some August goals - but I also want to just keep creating new healthy habits for myself.
