week 11: Session 2

It's a beautiful Spring night in Toronto and todays Run was OUTSIDE!! 
5minute warm up 
30minute run, 1minute walk and 20minute run (JUST realized that this was supposed to be a 30min run, 1min walk and 25minute run) OH WELL. I could have run for another 5minutes, so I'm going to say that I absolutely completed this session and move on. 
8.25km (5.12miles) in 61minutes. 
Todays run, although SLOW went so well. I am so pleased and just happy. 
I don't want to say that it was an easy run, because trust me I'm not at the place yet where running is easy, but it could not have gone better today. 
My Shins held up really well, with very little pain and although I was tired it all seems to come together for the perfect run for me. 
Funny... I got home after having one of those days at work and things at home have not been that great either... I don't think I could have run on the treadmill tonight, BUT things changed as soon as I got outside and went for my run. 
I just left everything behind. Running all by myself with no music it was therapeutic, I felt so renewed and ready to tackle whatever was waiting for me at home. 

Tomorrow, I'm training the girls on their Couch-to-5km. 
Wednesday I'm running session 3 of week 11.
Tonight we have a short post ... it's allergy season and my baby boy is really struggling with his allergies and asthma, it's going to be a long night. 

I wanted to thank everyone for their support and kind words. 
THANK You, it means so much to me!!

sounds like you had a fantastic run!!

Sorry to hear about your son. I suffer with allergies also and it can get rough.

Get some rest!

Awesome about the run! That's great! Good time too. That's a pretty fast run. Just keep practicing :)

And hooray for your shins not hurting. I'm sorry to hear about allergy season. That's gotta be rough.

Keep it up with the running!

Great job getting out there! I was pleased with the weather when I got off the plane in Toronto this evening. Looking forward to some nice outdoor runs this week!

Keep at it and you *will* get to that point where you can say "I went for an easy 5 miler..." etc. :)

YAY for a no music run. Every now and then they are theraputic!

Glad you had a great theraputic run. I know I didn't spell that right!
