Good evening my running buddies. I hope you all have had a great weekend! Yesterday was a pretty exciting day for me as spoiler alert: I hit my goal of a 30 minute 5k at the Lacombe Half Marathon! I will post a race recap early this week.
This morning I dragged Mary out of bed so we could go on a little shakeout run after our triumphs yesterday. We ended up walking more than we ran, but that’s ok because we both worked hard yesterday .
I was able to get out for a 7km run (my garmin was so slow to find satellites) this morning by myself. My legs were absolutely dead from almost three weeks of the 21 day fix extreme. Best part of my run was finding $5!
Today I ran 18km for the very first time! I’d be lying if I said it didn’t hurt…lots… But the Half Ironman race was going on and the elites kept passing us which was so inspiring and kept me going. I then spent the remainder of the day laying on the couch watching Netflix and eating snacks. I regret nothing. 😉
Today I really struggled with motivation to head out for my run. But when I got out there it was a beautiful day. I usually use run/walk to get through my long runs but I’m experimenting with heart rate training and by keeping my heart rate lower I was able to run 9 miles nonstop. I felt fantastic by the time I got home and was so glad I got myself out the door.
Thanks for joining in ladies!
