After we bought our supplies and got home, I changed for my run while he packed his paintball gear (he plays on a team and they have a tournament on Saturday). Today for my run I decided to venture up to the neighborhood next to ours. We've walked it multiple times with Guinness, but I had yet to run it. The voice inside my phone must have had laryngitis because she didn't tell me when to start running and when to walk! Having to keep glancing down at my armband was annoying, but hey, it worked. The Map My Run app got a facelift and had some great changes made to it. A voice comes on at each mile and tells you how long you've been running, how far you've gone, and what your pace is. I thought that was pretty cool.
As soon as I started my warm up, I knew my shorts were going to be a problem. They absolutely refused to stay up! I kept having to tug at them the entire run. I guess the good thing is that they ARE too big on me! Good thing I checked out Academy Sports on my lunch break yesterday and saw they have some great deals on running apparel. I may be making a trip there this weekend.
So I'm halfway through the C25K program, and I got really excited as I can see the progress that I'm making. That's the great thing about the Map My Run app...I can run it in the background and have all the mileage and min/mile information for me. When I looked at my past workouts I can see my mileage increase - woo hoo!
|(Ignore the walk - that was an rest day from running)|
Tonight should be a fun night - I'm going to the home opener for the Gwinnett Braves with J's training class and some of his coworkers. Is it 4:30 yet??
Until next time,
