50,000-59,999 SparkPoints 59,835

Best day yesterday

Sunday, December 08, 2013

I wanted to blog about this at the end of yesterday, but I had already blogged one blog and I wanted to get the sparkpoints for it today...and not right 2 blogs in one day.

Anyways, I had a major breakthrough with my running ability yesterday! emoticon

I decided, upon opening runkeeper, the app that I use with my workouts outside, to set my workout as a run instead of a walk for the first time. I've only been doing run/walk intervals for the past few months, but I always considered them more of a walk. Then I proceeded to run almost the whole time with some pretty small intervals of walking, for 45 minutes (although 5 of those minutes I was cooling down at the end). I was aiming to get just below 13 minutes per mile for my pace. I was just trying to get in the 12:50s. But then I saw that I was surpassing that, and that I could easily aim for 11:52. I finished with 11:51 min/mi. OMG

And I am SO close to no longer being obese bmi wise. I weighed myself yesterday and it said 168 which technically means I am now at an overweight bmi category. However it was just after the run and today it was 169.2 so I'm going to weight until next week to completely declare victory on that if I end up being 168 or lower!

I was also taking a shower when a huge runner's high/high from doing so awesome hit me. I ended up deciding I had to write a blog on my actual website (beyond this blog you're reading now)...I came up with the idea of what I wanted to say--Here's the link to it.

    Bravo! I get a mild runners high too! I have no idea what miles are (we do Metric in Canada) but sounds like you're doing really well! I take a lot of walking breaks!
