Speaking of not telling . . . no one in my real life, other than Chris, knows I have a blog. Chris doesn't read it
Anyway, a few weeks ago a coworker asked me how I was doing, and then he said "Just living the dream?" I never say I'm "living the dream." That is my husband's thing. I only have it on my blog (which I don't really care for). Anyway, I wondered if he happened to see my blog at some point and read it. Anyway, if he's reading it now . . . hmmmm, I guess that's okay, he's a nice guy. ; )
Yesterday I ran 4 miles. They were fast miles too. =) (9.44 min/mile) I was really tired when I got home, it was all I could do to put one more foot in front of another.
I read on Katie's blog a review for a book (follow the link, it'll take you to that post, I'm not going to go into that much detail) that talked about the amount of exercise you need to do in order to lose weight. 30 min 5-6 days/wk = weight maintenance, 60-90 min 5-6 day/wk = 1-2 lb weight loss and so on. Well, I only run 30 min a day, so I decided to up my run time. I have been running according to mileage, I decided to change that and start running according to time. However, I am not ready to run 60 min straight, but I can run 40 min. So that is what I am doing.
However, yesterday I ran faster than I normally do, so my
I think I would like to run for 6 miles. I hit 5 miles way back on July 1st and I only did it once, right after that we went camping and then my infamous injury, which means I haven't gone that far again. This last Sunday I hit 4.38 miles, which is good, but I would like to do 5 miles again, and I'd like to get up to 6 miles . . .
In fact, I've been even thinking of maybe, possibly trying to get up to 10 miles . . . shocking, I know. Here I talked about never wanting to do a marathon or even a half-marathon. It seems so far. And yet, now I'm entertaining the thought of getting my mileage up to 10 miles, that's only 3 miles short of a half-marathon . . . hmmm, I think maybe I've gone crazy. =)
Even though yesterday was hard, I'm looking forward to doing it again today. Runners really are a little crazy, aren't they? =)
