Posted on

I can not believe it -last week I ran a mile in 7:44 with M!!

Exactly ONE MONTH until my first 5k!!!!

My Longest Run Thus Far

Posted on

Halleluiah! I can’t believe I am even saying this but today M and I ran 5.91 miles! We decided to check out the rest of the trail and kept exploring and before we knew it we were past the San Jose International Airport. I ran almost the whole time but of course we had to stop a few times because I was winded. I also started getting very sore in my hip flexors at about the fourth mile which was something new but I guess expected for my first time. I am sure I will feel it tomorrow too. I definitely need to upgrade and get some new running shoes so if anyone has any recommendations please let me know! We started running around 9am and got back in just about an hour which was awesome. We beat the heat (it was 88 in San Jose today) and got back in time to grab a couple chairs down at the pool. It was a great day for my training and I seriously can’t wait to continue running faster and longer distances. I am actually really looking forward to it!

And if you can’t believe it either, here is the proof! I am on a roll for July!

I am getting pretty close….wouldn’t you say?

Running: Forcing myself to love it

Posted on

Running has always been a weakness of mine. I have never liked to do it..I get tired when I run and super dizzy because I don’t take full, deep breaths but I am working on it. My plan is to get in in shape and run 3 times a week! I am so proud of myself for running almost 3 miles last night and another mile this morning. It is so nice to be outside and smell nature…the jasmine…roses….trees and everything else. I am on track for building my endurance and look forward to running 5 miles before I know it. Deep breath….and GO!
