Ah, after a wonderful long weekend, it’s back to work today! Thankfully for a short week!
After a much DELAYED long run... yesterday, I finally made it entire 6 miles! This is Personal Distance Record myself! My previous being 5 miles. Boo yah!
I never really had a reason to run more than 5 miles before. Training for field hockey doesn’t require that long of runs. Now that I’m running a half marathon in March, it’s all apart of the plan. 😉 Can’t wait to keep making it higher each weekend! That being said, I really wish I had a running buddy to get through all of it with!
I also did Body Pump class yesterday in the morning..having the day off I wanted to go because I never get the chance otherwise…I went and the class was great, very glad I went. Thankfully we did more arm work than leg work because if we had did lunges AND squats, pretty sure I wouldn’t have gotten very far.
Unfortunately, my legs were tired. And I not thinking, I went the hilliest course I could have gone on. (DUH). From my house I have a possibility of 3 ways to start out… Not thinking about it, I chose land of the hills. Doi. Around mile 2 there’s these two back to back riduculous hills of terror that seem to go on forever. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger correct? 🙂 Not the best choice of all after body pump, but thankfully miles 3.5 -6 were mostly flat or downhill. Around mile 4 I finally go in my groove back and the last 2 breezed by. I’m so happy I’m making these small mile increases in my mileage, my endurance has NEVER felt better! Boom.
- You heard me brag about my accomplishment, go ahead tell me yours 🙂
