Training Update & Spring Fitness Must Haves

On Sunday, I ran 10 miles. I had limited motivation for this run, but once I got to mile 3, I started to hit my stride. I was watching Something Borrowed & got distracted by all of the rom-com goodness, so that helped too. I was able to keep my pace at 10 min/mile, which is my goal for the actual race. I figure that I can keep it up for another 3.1 miles & I'm finally starting to feel confident about this whole thing. (Unlike last week...)

Last night, I spent the afternoon with our JV cheer coach and didn't get home until 7 p.m. Ella still had to be fed, I had to eat dinner, there were dishes to be done... I could've found so many excuses to skip my run. What saved me was the arrival of my new sneakers! They were just calling my name, so I left the house at 7:50 & started running at 8. (Let me warn you, if you decide to run at 8 p.m. - you will not be ready to go to bed at 10. You will be WIDE awake. This was the case for me last night...) I ended up setting a new 5K PR! I held an 8:55 pace & finished in 26:49 - I was pumped!

loving my new Mizuno Wave Rider 15's

Because I was so pumped, I couldn't sleep. I was up in bed - emailing, blogging, and browsing online for some new running gear. Here are a few things that I NEED (hear that Eric, I NEED) to have for my spring runs...

  2. Isn't it fantastic that it's not the 80's and we don't have to wear spandex anymore? Also, for those of you just getting back into jogging/cycling etc, here's the idiot's guide to not killing yourself: http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=Y68KDAA8RR82&preview=article&linkid=f941b39c-34b0-4c9e-b5ab-fdc6b913db46&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d. Enjoy!
