5 miles!

So, yesterday I had a 5 mile run. It wasn't bad. We went early enough to stay out of the heat. Afterwards, we hit the pool. It was awesome to hit the pool after the refreshing! My time wasn't bad, could have been better if I didn't get stopped at a few major roads and almost hit by a car. But I still want to cut 8 minutes off the time for Wine and Dine. I've already made improvements. I cut four minutes off my 8k time from last month. YAY!!

So the car story, I was crossing a street in the crosswalk with the light. There was a sign that says "No turn on red when pedestrians are in the crosswalk" (where I was at the time). I'm sure you can see where this is going...I was in the crosswalk and a car attempted to turn on red....This lady on a bike starts yelling at the driver of the car who clearly did not know what was going on. But I survived and crossed the road without getting hit.

Happy Monday all!

Big Run

So, I'm doing the Jeff Galloway program and I have a 5 mile run tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous, not about the distance, but about the heat. Brian (my husband) and I are going to try and accomplish this as early as possible so it'll be as cool as possible. But it's still going to be hot! We've been discussing getting a fuel belt for me because the runs only get longer.

Any suggestions on belts from those veteran runners out there?

Happy Running!

Nothing Much

So, not too much is going on today. I have a rest day from running and we (my husband and I) decided to take the week of off P90X. We've survived 6 weeks of the regular program.

But, good news I got my Kaboom sparkle skirt today (made my Monday). Feel free to check out Sparkle Skirts. I haven't run in it yet but I can't wait to do so!

Have a great Monday evening all!

Today's Run

So, I'm following the Jeff Galloway running plan for Wine and Dine (I'm running the relay with my brother-in-law). So today's run was 4 miles...and I felt awful. My pace was only two seconds slower than my 5k last week, which isn't bad considering I basically added an extra mile. But between the heat and the lack of hydration, it was bad. My computer said it was only 67 out when I don't think the temperature had updated. It was over 80 when I returned home.

So lesson learned, drink lots of water and run earlier in the day.

By the way, I'm leaning toward running the Myrtle Beach Mini. Any thoughts on the course? Any likes or dislikes?


Welcome to my new blog. I've decided to blog about my journey of running and living. I'm training for my first half marathon (not sure which it will be yet). But, here's my journey...
