Tonight I decided to run with my hair down! I'm not sure why I decided to do this, but I did! My hair stayed straight the whole time! This is actually an "after" picture! This is also the first time I have run in a t-shirt. I usually run in tank tops. Yeah, probably won't happen again. It was too uncomfortable. I don't think I will be cold after I start going, so I'm not going to worry about longer sleeves during the winter. Unless I can find some sweat wicking shirts. :) The hubby ran along with me again to keep me company. :) He is getting better at motivating me to keep going. I ❤ him for this. :)
As for the run...We ran 2 miles in 29 minutes. Yes I added a minute, but I took 4 days off before this run. Life happened and I just couldn't get out there....I hope this never happens again. My calves were so tight and sore almost the whole run! The weather, however, was amazing! A cool 65 degrees! I'm loving the fall weather! Just not sure what winter will bring! I just hope it doesn't hurt my breathing...We walked a half a mile and then decided to run the last half! It was great! I am almost confident that I will be able to run an entire 5K very soon!
Tonight I found out that the track I have been running, this whole time, is actually 3.6 miles and not 3.1 like I had assumed! Tonight it just felt like something was off...We walked the first quarter mile to warm up. We then ran 2 miles. Then we walked half a mile and then ran another half mile. It just didn't add up. Then I looked it up, and come to find out..That first "quarter" mile is actually longer! It all equals 3.6! Weird, I know! So I have been going farther than I thought I had been all along! So when I completed the whole track in 54 minutes tonight...I may have done almost a 50 minute 5K! Which is closer to my 45 minute goal on race day! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get my Garmin Forerunner, so I can really track my mileage! :)
Pre-run I had half of one of these...
The hubby had the other half. It was so yummy! I liked it better than the Chocolate chip ones! Also drank half a cup of coffee for a bit more energy. It was the Dunkin Donuts coffee! Oh so yummy! :)
I just wanted to add this picture from the Lamar Cardinals Football game on Saturday! I thought it was a great pic of us :) We got our Red on! (To bad we lost, lol)
