I wanted to update you on how my run went earlier on but the whole having a job thing got in the way.
This morning I had 36 minutes of heaven (30 minutes running, 6 minutes of walking breaks). I am not going to lie there was some pain in the quad but it was only a level 2 out of 10.
2 minutes into my first 5 minute interval my chest was burning, I was breathing like I had emphysema and my calves were yelling at me for making them work again.
I started to get frustrated but then I remembered I LOVE that feeling with every fiber of my being. I LOVE to feel like I am pushing myself to become faster, stronger and a smarter runner……even if that means starting at square one again:) Thanks for all of your amazing comments and good luck wishes, you give me warm fuzzies.
Time for Triple Tangent Tuesday where I share with you 3 completely random things about me. You do the same in the comments or on your blog:)
1- I may or may not schedule my elliptical sessions at the gym according to what time ‘What I Like About You’ is on.
I LOVE Amanda Bynes (probably because she makes creepy faces like me) and I will never stop watching tv shows that are tailored for 16 year old girls.
2- One of the most exciting thing about Spring time for me is whipping out my Sperry Topsiders. I wear these suckers every day.
I want them in every color but apparently Billy thinks that it is more important to pay for tuition and stuff like that instead of expanding my shoe collections horizon’s.
3- Time for my good NEWS. Your probably going to be like, ‘why did you make such a build up for this,’ but I am stoked.
I am signed up and ready to go for the HUFF TO BLUFF MARATHON in Southern Utah. I am so excited about this because my PT is telling me that I NEED to take walk breaks at Boston and to view Boston as a REWARD rather than a race. I am going to listen to him so that I don’t get reinjured.
After Boston I am going to take it EASY for two weeks and then prepare for kicking trash at the Huff To Bluff Marathon while listening to my body at the same time:) Who wants to run it with me?!?! The link to the race is on the top left side of the blogaroo. It is going to be a BEAUTIFUL course with lots o’ downhill. You know you want to and then we can go eat bagels and ice cream together afterwards!!! This is such good news to me because I am getting a second chance for my sub 3 marathon:)
4. My student teacher is single handedly trying to give me diabetes. She is succeeding.
Thanks to some readers that sent me a link to an ARTICLE about the benefits of being a candy-eater:)
********My cutest/favoritest student, Kaya is going to INDIA for a humanitarian trip with the group, Youth Making a Difference. This girl is absolutely amazing and needs YOUR help to raise money to get there to work in orphanages to teach them basic health and sanitation skills and core school subjects. She is only a few hundred dollars away from her goal so PLEASE donate if you are able to:)
Here is the LINK!!!!!
