I DID IT!!! First double digit run in F-O-R-E-V-E-R!!
I did the run today by myself…..I KNOW…..billy, his brother and dad were out doing stuff this morning so I was forced to push myself rather than my pride pushing me because I refuse to be beat by my husband.
I REALLY wanted to do a progressive run and finish STRONG and I did it.
First mile was 8:40 and I sped up about 5-10 seconds each mile ending with a 7:40 mile. 10 miles baby and I finished with one mile cool-down in 9:15.
My mom called me as soon as I was done questioning how my bones were feeling and guess how I got to reply….GREAT!!!! No pain at all. My shins splints are bugging me but once I get my running muscle back I am sure they will be fine. PS I didn’t force the Charlie on my run with me but the MIL and I took him on a nice three mile walk while we talked about everything under the sun. I am a talker. I can’t stop and when I am by myself I have to type what I am thinking. That is why I post 374 times a day in case you were wondering.
Billy lost one of my socks when he did the laundry. Do I get mad that it is gone or do I reward him for doing the laundry?
I guess running double digits means I get to lay around all day, eat three times as much ice cream and force billy to massage my m
One of the top 10 reasons I run…….the feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT. I am on cloud nine because I am CELEBRATING what I did today rather than comparing myself to what I used to do.
Tell me about the last thing that you did (doesn’t have to be running/fitness related) that gave you the feeling of ACCOMPLISHMENT!?!?!
Have you ever had shin splints……what did you do about them?
