9/29

Solid 2 miles! A good way to start the week. My goal is to reach at least 10 miles total this week, with a 5.5 mi long run. (Terrified. 5 was hard enough!!)

9/25/14 - BAM! New record! :) 13.1 still feels reeeeally far away…but every step counts.

Woof. I fell off the wagon this week. I did do a fast 1 mile run last Wednesday, which I forgot to log.

The good news is that I am back on track! Ran 2 miles tonight in a pretty decent time. Tomorrow is “long run” day this week - trying for 5 miles. Ahhh!!!

9/16

Solid 2 miles! Already at 6.5 for the week :)

My goal is to run every week day this week. I need to be more consistent, and I’m feeling good this week!

Oops, forgot to log two runs last week: did 2 miles on Wednesday and 1 race pace mile on Thursday, as well as some wall sits!

Yesterday, I reached my “Monday long run” goal of 4.5 miles!!!!! New record :) Next week I’m trying for 5. Every week I’m getting closer to that 13.1 distance!

9/8

SUCCESS. I finally ran 4 miles without stopping tonight!!! I haven’t done that in years, so I’m pretty happy.

When I hit 5 miles, I’ll have to reward myself with something…maybe new running shoes ;)

9/7 update

I forgot to log two runs from last week: 2.5 on Wednesday and 1 on Thursday. Still haven’t done 4 miles -_- Kyle and I decided that we need to have a designated day for our long run, so we are going to try Mondays (starting tomorrow).

Today, we went for a 3.5 mile walk. It was beautiful out and the walk made me feel much better.

9/1 (happy Labor Day!!)

What a delightful day! Kyle and I went for a 1.5 mile run, followed by a 3.5 mile hike in the woods. It was beautiful. Afterward, we made a healthy dinner of whole wheat pasta and homemade tomato sauce with zucchini. We used vegetables from my mom’s garden - soooo good.

I’ve pushed back my 4 mile goal to the end of this week. I should’ve realized it wouldn’t happen, being out of town for most of the weekend…BUT I will definitely do it this week. Today’s run/hike was a great workout. :)
