Mine started out way early in the morning, after I had to get up with my little man to make potty runs. Lets just say I was a little tired when I got up Saturday morning for my run. I dragged a bit on my run but I did get it done. I let the dog out and sat on the couch for a bit to wake up and fix my coffee. I got ready and slipped out of the house and thankfully no one else got up. The weather was perfect – 59 F and it felt heavenly. I met up with the group and we headed out. Most of them were doing 5 miles total but I knew i would turn around before that at about 2 miles for a total of 4 miles. I did stay with the main group for 3/4 of the first 2 miles which is better than the last time when they started loosing me just after the 1 mile mark. So WIN for me for a small improvement. I turned around at the 2 mile point with another girl and we stayed within sight of each other for quiet a while after that. I lost her when I needed my own potty break but I managed to make it back to my car in under an hour. I still can’t find my stop watch so I have no idea how I was doing. I’m going to try out the RunKeeper app on my phone on my next run and see if I like it, if it even works where I run (cell service can be spotty). I wonder if my little man has walked off with my watch and put it somewhere special. Maybe I will find it eventually, probably after I go buy a new one or get me a garmin.
The plan this week, first I have got to start swinging my bell again but I don’t need to make myself hurt during my runs so I will have to be careful with this. So I seriously need to pull it out tonight and do a workout. Probably I will back up one or two and start there to ease back into it. I quit a few weeks ago when I was pushing myself too much and suffering for it. I backed off for a 1/2 a week and started to feel better. Well then my two races were coming up and I didn’t need to hurt while running because of my kb workout so I didn’t start them back. I really do need to do some strength training and I was enjoying the bell and the results so I will pull it back out. So here is my current plan:
Wednesday: run 3 miles
Saturday: run 4 miles
Sunday: kettlebell, bike ride or off??? who know what we will do
Ok I will leave you with a few new inspirational things I found today. I need to take a few pictures of my runs so I have those to share also.
