Run # 18

Run like hell and get the agony over with - Clarence DeMar

I definately felt the agony at the end of my run tonight. Lately I've been running what Brett and I call the 'small square'. This 'small square' is a 1.2 mile loop around Lake Eola and is the square when you follow the roads and not the walking/running path around the lake.

Lately because Brett is injured, I just go run by myself and we've noticed when I take the garmin and run on my own I do a lot better than with him (why is still yet to be determined).

So tonight, home from work, grab the iPod and off I go to run my 'small square'. Still no garmin because, well I dont feel like wearing it and watching it every 30 seconds. So Instead I run my square and just let the iPod run and when I get back i total up the time of the songs to get my total time. Tonight though I decided I was going to go a little bit further than last time (aka push myself which it the hardest thing for me) so instead of stopping at the traffic light where I start I kept going and finished at the next traffic light up where my building is. Its not a lot but right now I'm really glad I did it so next time I can say know what you can go farther :)

Run #17

Running is real, and relatively simple...but it ain't easy - Mark Will-Weber

So I have been running here and there, I just havent been trying as hard as I could and I havent been consistent. I get into these ruts where I want to just be lazy, eat un-healthy, and do whatever I want after work.
So this past weekend I figured lets start blogging again - stick with it - triathlons are coming up and I have to get ready so here's my Take 3 (maybe take 4 or 5 - I just dont want to count)
So Sunday, Brett and I were bad, we skipped Church so I decided at 12 or 12:30 I was going for a run. It felt so good - it was hot but there was a slight breeze so it helped. Now I didnt take my Garmin (didnt feel like it)

Results of Run #17
