Run at Home

Today was a run day for me,

So last night I put my running shoes in my new gym bag that J gave me so that I could grab it this morning on my way out the door.  Halfway to work I realized I had left the bag by the couch...oops.  I like running at the park more than in my neighborhood, but tonight would be an exception.

I got home, took the pup out, and headed out to do my training.  I was really happy about this workout.  It was the first day I had no negative thoughts while running AND I didn't curse at the woman in my phone when she told me to "start running".  I even ran a little when I was supposed to walk.  I felt fantastic by the time I got home.  I was sweaty and not too out of breath, so I know my endurance is getting better.

After three weeks of consistently running at least three times a week, I finally feel like I'm getting into a groove.  I find myself looking forward to my runs after work and on the weekends.  If the forecast calls for rain I always hope that it holds out so I can get my run in since I really don't like running on a treadmill.  It's a great feeling to have.

  1. I can't wait until I feel like this about running. So far I am just walking (4mph is my max). How fast do you run? Just curious! :)

    1. I have absolutely no idea :P I use an app on my phone called "Map My Run" that tells me my minutes/mile, but I don't know my mph :)

  2. What app do you use that tells you to walk or run? I have used Map My Run, but don't recall that option.

  3. I also use May My tells you the minutes/mile, but you'd have to calculate the MPH...J said on average I was 4.6 mph. I put the bug in his ear last night about a Garmin :)

  4. Congratulations on the progress - you're doing great!
