Going to start tracking my runs again

I'm going to start keeping track of my runs and workouts again.  I think this will be good for me.  I am hoping to run a half in November so I really have to get going!

Ready to Start Running Again

I am 2 days away from having child #2, a little girl.  I am so ready to start running again after I recover from surgery!  I will start up the blog again when my recovery time is complete.  Marathon training here we come!

Not Running

I have not been running at all lately.  I feel horrible about it.  I was doing so well and then life happened.  I got caught up with studying and just feel like there is not enough time in the day.  Plus it is super HOT here.  I want to get back into and try to take 30 minutes out of my day for myself.  Here's to hopeful motivation!

I am a terrible blogger!

I do really good with my blog for about a week and then I totally drop off the deep end.  I have still been running.  Today is going to be C25K's W5D3.  20 straight minutes of running.  I think I can, I think I can.  I handled the 2 8 minutes of running with a 5 minute walk in between pretty well.  I just told myself that I could look at how much time was left until the song that was playing when I started running and the next song were completely finished.  Then I only had about 2 minutes of running left and I can handle that!  It is hot outside today, so I know I will sweat like crazy!  Oh well, that is what I am out there for.

C25K W5D3

5 minute warmup
20 minutes running
5 minute cool down

Happy running!

Treadmill Run

I ran on the treadmill today for the first time in a couple of weeks.  It was really hard.  I feel like everything was going so well when I was only running on the treadmill.  Then I switched to the road and was starting to feel so much better about it too.  It was so hard going back to the treadmill.  I'm a little discouraged right now but I know it will get better.  Probably going to run on the road again on Friday.  Today's run was:

C25K W4D2

5 min warmup
3 min run
1 1/2 min walk
5 min run
2 1/2 min walk
3 min run
1 1/2 min walk
5 min run
5 min cooldown

Friday will be the same run.

Happy running!

Didn't Run

I didn't get my run in yesterday.  J had something to do for work until around 9 o'clock so it was just C and me.  I could have taken him in the stroller, but I would have had to avoid the park and that would have been hard.  Plus, I really like running without the distractions.  I am going tonight to do my C25K W4D2 and will try to do W4D3 tomorrow so I don't get behind.

I was also presented with the opportunity to do some group training for the next 14 weeks for a 10K that I was already hoping to run.  It is 3 nights a week and I don't know if I am ready to commit that much time away from my family.  I know that it would be good for me to do some group training and it would hold me accountable for training.  We will have to see if that is going to work out!

Happy running!
