2 posts in 1 day?!?! Right? What can I say, I’m still in the excited phase. Anyways, near the beginning of August I made a pledge to join a fellow blogger on a little challenge:
Thanks friend! With my back being messed up last week and a good chunk of this week, I wasn’t able to start this little quest August 1. Amazing how things have transitioned from excitement towards heading out for a run, to coming up with 10+ excuses not to. New area, don’t know what route would be good. Have yet to unpack my shuffle, can one even run without music? etc, etc… BUTTT… yesterday I got my first mile in! Technically I guess I have some miles to make up, but since Sunday Aug. 3rd our WOD included a 2km run (MORE than a mile! Yes!) I’m counting that and considering it that I owe 6 instead of 7. Biggest accomplishment with getting my first run in yesterday… I did it after work! 8:30pm is so not my cup of tea, but felt great once it was done. The reasoning I gave myself – if it were an 8:00pm hockey game I wouldn’t talk myself out of it. Run #2 happened today before work. Much more my style. Found a better route too which didn’t involve a little “trail run” section along the side of a busy road. Or some kids yelling “run Forrest!!” as I passed.
Friday August 8 (8:30pm) – 9:03
Saturday August 9 (7:15am) – 8:28
**note – Wow! My new neighborhood is kinda hilly!
