Let me start by saying, "Thank you so much for all the encouraging comments on this blog and emails in my inbox." Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate it more than you know and it motivates me so much. :)
Yesterday was an unexpected day off from running. My mother-in-law has been visiting and we ran lots of errands and spent an afternoon at the beach. Here's the little guy and I getting ready to head out to Coronado.
It was fun and relaxing, but I have a busy week ahead of me. My goal is to have my first 20 mile week this week.
This morning my aching knees and I headed out the door early. I hadn't eaten anything yet, so I put down a double latte gel by Powerbar with a bottle of water before I left. I warmed up and walked for .45 miles and then started running. I realized midway through the first mile that I'd hurried off without my music. Darn it! I was running alone today as well, and my times are a bit slower. I must have been showing off a bit for my husband the other day or the music gives you more "get-up-and-go" than I realized. :)
Okay. Here are the numbers....
Mile 1: 10.53
Mile 2: 10.35
Mile 3: 10.49
Mile 4: 10.57
I only cooled down about .05 miles, which gave me a total of a half mile walking. I stretched with Dan and did a couple of planks when I got home, but I really should cool down a little better in the future. Twelve more miles to go this week to hit my goal.
Well, not the most exciting post, I realize. I'll try to spice it up a bit in the future. However, I got the run in today in the midst of running errands, nursing baby, taking my MIL to the airport, etc. Woohoo! :)
