I ran 2.1 miles today.....STRAIGHT!!!! Not one break for walking or water. A huge personal victory and I couldn't be more proud. The T.V. on my treadmill was broke today so I had to rely on my Iphone music. I just kept focusing on the miles instead of the time for once, and before I knew it----2 miles had been accomplished and I had the strongest feelings of elation!!!!!!!! Even more so, because this week has been challenging with my energy levels. Monday= strong run, Tuesday= hardly any energy but managed to walk/run, Wednesday= no running, just walking due to no energy and a stomach ache (Wednesday is suppose to be rest day, but since Tuesday wasn't a great workout, I wanted to push myself) Thursday= strong run with the 12minute running intervals with 1 minute walking and FRIDAY= 2miles running!!!
What a way to start the weekend! Scott and I are headed to Rhode Island and I will be attempting my first run outside. I'm a little nervous and excited! A lot of my running friends & a few running articles, say that taking the run outside is a completely different type of stamina and really stress not getting frustrated with the early fatigue because you are using different muscles and there is more impact on your joints running outside......I will keep you posted on my outside running adventure!I have to make the transition outside at some point (Since the 5K is outside-after all!!!) Have an amazing weekend and take care-
