Pro Compression winner & Dumbo Training update

Thank you so much to everyone that entered my Pro Compression giveaway!  The winner is...

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Congrats, Kimberly!  I will email you and you have 48 hours to reply back.  If I don't hear back from her, I will pick another winner!

Pro Compression has offered a discount code to all of my readers!  Use the code BLG13 to get 40% and free shipping on non-sale Marathon socks and calf sleeves!  I know I'll be ordering a pair of red ones very soon!

My Dumbo training has been going well.  With each run I'm going a little further than I did the run before.  Yesterday I headed out on my favorite place to run - the Big Creek greenway - right after work.  It's right near my office so it's very convenient for me to go by on my way home and get my run done.  I'm still doing 1:1 run/walk intervals, and I can tell they are getting easier.  Yesterday I was trying to run 1/10 of a mile during my run intervals, and I found myself "chanting" the number I needed to get to in my head, and everytime I made it to that number! 

I was pretty happy with this distance for the 30 minute run.  I was REALLY hoping to make it to 2.5 miles, but I'm slowly getting there.  Next run is tomorrow so we'll see if I get some improvement!

I've got another giveaway coming up soon, so stay tuned!

Until next time,

Jen

  2. Thanks for the ProCompression discount code! Nice run, so close to 2.5, you'll be there before you know it! I love that you were encouraging yourself by 'chanting', I do that all the time. It's very important to be able to push and motivate yourself!

    1. I cracked myself up because with each foot strike I would say part of the number I wanted to get to :)
