Run # 69

ITs a Celebration!!! New Personal Record Tonight!! and I accomplished a goal!

First - I am still around, I am trying to run more but Ive been busy lately with starting my new job (which I LOVE!) and I've signed up for another 10 class Bikram Yoga package so I do that 1-2 times a week.

Tonight, the hubby and I went out to go run. It luckily wasnt as hot as normal so you didnt feel like you were going to melt or die. Monday we ran 2 miles - I wanted to die but didnt, Thank you God, we both know its not my time. So today I wanted to run at least 3 miles - we set out and I tried hard not to look at my pace but cheated a few times and compared to Brett and he said we were going a lot slower than my garmin said so I knew his must be wrong because it felt like 5 min miles. LOL.

2 miles in I wanted to quit but told myself I had to get 3 in Once we were getting close to the 3 mark and that a PR would be possilble the 5K goal came about and wow. Maybe I dont need to train for the 1/2 marathon and just go wing it since I can not run for a lil while and pull this out. Dont get me wrong but I just dont get it. Why cant every run be a good / amazing run?

June & July 2011 Summary

With my lazy but I forgot to post my monthly summary for June. Since its August I figured post a combo summary for June & July.... lets see if I can space these 2 out in 2 columns

June was my longest run to date with a whopping 4 miles - then July came and I was able to run a 5 miler. Maybe August will be my 6??? hahahh


Yep - I've been very lazy lately.  Almost feel like that cute pup, but wish my laziness looked like that.  What doesnt help is that last week I caught a cold from a very sharing co-worker.
Now that I'm feeling better I really need to start running / training for this 1/2 marathon I signed up for.... cant believe its in 152 days...eeek!
