Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!
Thanks to all the well wishes.
It's has been a lot of 'sweat' to get to where I am today and I am so happy that I believed in myself and did NOT give up like so many times before.
I honestly could NOT have done it without all your support and encouragement and learning from some of the seasoned runners.
now back to regular scheduled blogging...
Finally a good pain free run. I've been Icing and stretching everyday and low and behold I actually had a great run today.
I felt Amazing and LOVED my run today.
I decided to take a 14min warm up walk, stopped and stretched and then ran for 35minutes followed by another 14min cool down walk. Success!!
7.34km in 1:04hr, glad I'm back to running
Why is it that it always takes me the 1st mile to settle into my run? I was huffing and puffing for the 1st mile, having a hard time finding my pace but after that 1mile things start to settle in and the rest when great.
This past week has been really challenging to find time to run.
With hubby recovering from surgery there just doesn't seem to be any extra time for me.
Run home from work and make dinner, help kids with homework, eat dinner, clean kitchen, prep for breakfast, make lunches, help kids with bed time. It's like I'm a single mom with 3 kids ... you get the point, I'm non stop busy.
It has been really frustrating and the lack of sleep certainly doesn't help.
I get really cranky when I don't get my 8hrs sleep.
I'm even thinking that I might need to start running in the morning before work!
That would mean I would have to be up by 5am!!
I simply don't know if I can pull that off... something to think about.
What's next on my running agenda you might ask... well since today's run went so great and I have renewed confidence in my running I'm looking at signing up for the Acura Toronto 10-Miler
My only concern is that this race is on July 11th which is exactly one week after I come back from my 2 week Vacation in Portugal.
Will I be able to get 6 training runs in while on Vacation?
I think that would be a big accomplishment, I've never even visited the gym while on vacation never mind going for a run.
How do you insure you keep up your training while on Vacation in a different Country?
