Tonight . . . yeah, I didn't want to run. It's been raining all day, and I had a dentist appt late afternoon, so I knew my run would be late. I decided to skip it. Then Chris came in and said it stopped raining, so I thought that must be God's way of telling me to go running, so I did. It was hard and now my shins hurt a bit (I'm going to the local run shop tomorrow to ask about shoes). It didn't rain until after I got home, so that was nice. I was thinking during my run that I'd really like to get my usual 3 miles under 33 min. I seem to be stuck at that time. I was going to add it to my list of goals when I got home. I really pushed myself the last mile this time and came in at 31.58. Wow! So I added to my goals to run it under 30 min.
|Tonight's run. Fabulous!|
I have been running 6 days a week (for the most part) for 5 1/2 weeks now. I can't believe it's been that long, and at the same time it seems like forever. I want to do this for the rest of my life. I enjoy it and love the way it makes me feel. I'm trying to decide if I really want to get into races. I'm doing this Tulip
I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but I always want to snack in the evening. Last night was bad. I chew a lot of gum to combat that desire. I think it helps. :-) It's a good thing my dentist said my teeth are fine, I don't know what I would do if I was told not to chew gum anymore.
P.S. If you look at the picture above of Chris and D, you see the line of trees in front of them? Well, the trail follows that line of trees up the hill and around a corner. That is the gradual part of the hill that leads to my Horrendous Hill. I have to run up the gradual part in order to get to HH.
