Yarr…go away rain. I need to run… Don’t like being wet when running, unless it’s sweat ;)
What a couple of gained pounds (not muscle) does to your running ability…. sigh
I don’t think I’ve gone on a 12 minute mile pace since like…middle school. Lol but that’s the worst of it
That time of the year whenTumblr actually gives me motivation to keep running. Day 1 of marathon training starts today. Better late than never.
Ahhh….nice to see you again Tumblr. Everything’s been hectic with all the moving and stuff, and also my laziness. But I started week 7. 9 more weeks to go! :x
Yesterday (7/24), I ran 3.2 easy miles. Except I felt sluggish. It was hot, and it had been 6 days since I last ran. I ran at a 9:11 min/mile pace.
Today, I managed to finish 7 miles quite easily. 65:47 for a 9:23 min/mile pace. My run was steady, with a couple walks (by the fruit stand and at the top of evil giant hill). The walks were a little longer, about 90-120 seconds. It’s hard to tell whether I would’ve ran a faster pace if I didn’t stop because I wouldn’t be wasting time, or slower because I might be running slower. I don’t know, but the last time I ran 7 mile, it took me 1 hour and 14 minutes. Progress!
The only thing though is that I find it very difficult to get up. It took me an hour to get up and another 30 minutes to get out of my house and start running.
In other news, I love protein. I tried Luna Bar today (Caramel Nut Brownie). It was delicious! I may have to take some with me on vacation. Then I ate Greek yogurt and cottage cheese. I really needed to up my protein intake because I usually get about 30 grams, but today I got 84 grams! Yay!
Eying a 12 mile run on Sunday. Wish me luck!
I’ve been on a hiatus in light of my 21st birthday. I’m itching to run o_o
Hahaha this zombie game is awesome. I tried it today for my short 3 mile run. (Yeah I skipped my 10 miles. I’ll spare you my BS excuses) I had to sprint 3 times but I got caught twice because I wasn’t running fast enough. But the sprinting drained me though. Ended up running 3 miles in 29:30 (9:50 min/mile). Stopped a couple times because my ears were so sweaty that my headphones kept falling out and I wanted to check my progress on zombies run lol.
On a sadder note, I missed the sprinklers because I didn’t get out in time :(
Tomorrow is 5 miles…will definitely have to wake up early.
Just bought the Zombies, Run! app for Android. Haha can’t wait to use it for tomorrow. Planning on running the 10 miles I was supposed to do today, but we’ll see :P
