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
