strong body, healthy spirit.
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. :)

Week update (8/24-8/27)

8/24 - 1 mile run
8/25 - 20 minutes on the bike with high resistance, upper body weights (6 sets of 8)
8/26 - rest
8/27 - 2 mile run

I will do another run tomorrow - probably 1.5 or 2.

8/23 - GOAL REACHED!

I just ran 3.5 miles without stopping!!! That was my goal for the week, and I knew I had to do it tonight. The last mile was reeeally hard…and slow…but it will get easier.

Goal for next week: 4 mile run. I am scared just thinking about it. But if I ever want to run a half marathon…gotta do it.

Yay running!

8/20

1.5 mile run outside - fast! I hit the mile mark faster than I have since I started “training”…so that’s cool.

Still need to pull out a 3.5 mile run for my “long” run this week. I may try for it tonight.

Today’s workout:

I went to the gym tonight because it was too dark to run outside. It was a good workout!! I’ll run outside tomorrow.
