Good evening friends!
It’s been a great weekend over here and I finally managed to get out for my Sunday run! I kissed Liam goodbye this morning while he goes to his dads. I immediately hit the mat for my scheduled yoga with weights session and then took to the trail for my run. I set out with no intentions other than to enjoy my run and the beautiful day. I had no pace, distance or time in mind. I ended up doing a nice light 4k on my usual trail and realized how much I’ve improved since starting my lunch time runs with coworkers. I could run farther without stopping, I could conquer all the hills, it finally felt easier!

Today was the first day since starting the 5k running program that I went solo. I knew it was going to be tough so I woke up bright and early, arising to a perfect cool yet sunny day. It was surprisingly way more difficult that I had expected. However I got through it. And ended at a beautiful spot for stretching and meditating! (It was also the first time using the Nike app. Not sure what happened and why it paused at one point).
I’m really excited that Sasha will be running the Mud Hero with me in a couple weeks! We are going to have so much fun!
Today I ran 8.19km in 54:22. Another record distance for me. As I usually do on my longer runs on Sunday, my only goal was to cover the distance. I felt pretty good for most of it, but I did need to take a couple walk breaks. When I got home, I felt I could keep going, so I’m starting to feel quite confident I’ll be able to run my 10K race in September quite comfortably, and I may even be able to set myself some pace goals.
I got in a quick 3km this afternoon. It was HOT!!! Made it a solo run today cuz poor Leaf was already hot. I didn’t make my goal of 15km this week due to lack of energy after work but next week I’ll hit it for sure!!! No room for excuses. Happy #sundayrunday
Finished OITN while running! 4 miles on the treadmill while the little guy napped. My legs are still really sore from yesterday’s long run so I took it nice and slow with water/walking breaks after each mile. 24 miles for the week. Week 6 of Half Marathon training done
Thank you so much ladies for joining me today! I look forward to running with all of you (and maybe all of your friends!) next weekend! It makes me to see new faces joining our Sunday run.
