Week 4 of my running
I haven't posted much about my running so I thought I would today. I started my 4th week of running yesterday morning. Yes, morning. I am up and downstairs running no later than 5:30. I'm going to have to either start taking breakfast in the car on the way to work or start running earlier. Yeah I think I'll be drinking protein shakes in the car, thank you very much! My first week I ran 1 mile, second week 1 1/4 miles, last week 1 1/2 miles and yesterday I started 1 3/4 miles. It's going pretty well. I LOVE having my ipod thingy to tell me how far I've gone, what my time is, how many calories I've burned & the occassional kuddos. It really makes running bearable! I would normally be freaking out about running 2 miles on a treadmill next week but I'm not at all. Do I like running? No not really! But I want to like running & I want to be good at it. That may take a while! I am definitely not where I would like to be on time but I'll get there....eventually...I hope! I am definitely slower than I was in PR when Kate & I ran but I'm also older & have had a baby so I'm heavier. :( 4 weeks down - 11 to go!
