Felt kind of blagh in the morning. Decided to run on the treadmill. Watched seeking a friend for the end of the world. Watching a movie while being on the treadmill makes treadmill running a lot better. Walked one minute. Ran twenty nine minutes. Walked one minute. Ran twenty nine minutes. Walked tenish minutes as a cool down at the end. I’m going to try running more consistently. The treadmill really isn’t that bad. I kind of like it.
It might seem kind of sort of inappropriate or weird but I like it. It’s called me in my place. A photographer takes picture of a whole lot of different type of women. There are a bunch of different body types. It’s kind of awesome to see all these people are I think to myself that if they all look awesome then so do I.
Today I ran a new path around my neighborhood. I try to mix it up do I don’t have the distance memorized. It seems like I run better when I do that than when I run the same course and know where each mile is at. There were kind of a lot of little hills today. They don’t look big until you run them and the they feel like the biggest things ever. At the beginning of my run it wasn’t too windy, but about halfway through it started and there would be a few minutes of no wind and then really super windy until the end of my run. At one point it went from no wind to extremely windy towards my side and I almost fell over. It was kind of funny. I only did four miles today, but I’m happy with that. It’s still weird to me that I can run longer distances. I can actually keep a good pace too so I’m not even sacrificing speed to run longer like I thought I would do.
This winter I’m going to try to keep up with my running the on the treadmill so I don’t lose it all by next summer.
Saturday I decided to run a new path and I wasn’t sure how long it would be. I didn’t care about how fast I went; I just wanted to run farther than what I usually do. It ended up being like 4.75 miles. I walked less then .25 of it which was kind of awesome. Once I passed 2 miles and I kept going I was thinking to myself this is kind of awesome. After the run I felt tired, but I didn’t feel any more sore than when I do my usual run of 2 miles.
Today I decided to try doing it again. I did kind of the same path, but I did it backwards. The bigish hills were at the beginning of the run instead of the end. I’m not sure if I prefer them at the beginning or end. I got to 4.75 miles and still felt like I could do a little more so I passed my house and kept going. I ran until my phone told me I ran 5 miles. At that point I stopped and walked.
Although I’m not trying to run fast and I’m actually doing a slow comfortable jog I am still having some pretty good mile times. Today’s miles were: 1mi 9:33 2mi 9:54 3mi 10:36 4mi 10:17 5mi 10:27
I am so proud of myself for doing this today. I talked to my boyfriend on the phone and before I told him anything he told me it sounds like I’m having a good day. It is impossible to have a bad day when I have a good run.
I feel bad about myself but I’m not fat. I are unhealthy food so that made me feel blaghish. My stomach is upset. That does not mean I ate too much food. Tomorrow is a new day and it will be fine.
This is kind of awesome. For the last few day at the end of the day when I look in the Murrow my stomach still looks kind of like muscley. It looks good after eating food!!!! I have a tiny little bit of belly that sticks out below my belly button, but it’s not even much. This is making me more excited for Florida.
I’m already pretty comfortable with how my legs look. I like running and the elliptical and classes at the gym so they always look goodish.
My stomach is the body part that I feel self conscience about and it’s starting to go away.
Before the race Mr. Boyfriend and I went to Target to see if they had any glowy stuff. In the front section where they have all the cheapy stuff they had a bunch. I found some cute heart shaped glasses. We bought a bunch of bracelet and necklaces. The drive there wasn’t too bad. We were kind of southwest of the city so luckily we didn’t have too much traffic since most people were leaving the city and we were headed towards it.
This was the first 5k my boyfriend and I have done. It was really fun. We didn’t run much of it so it was more of a walky thing, but it was good. Mr. Boyfriend, his brother and I drove together and we got there earlier than the people we were meeting there. I kind of liked that we got there early because then there was time to get our glowy stuff put together. Some of the people who were throwing the powder would throw it in your face and while I understand they were trying to get it everywhere it kind of sucked to be blind for a few minutes. After the run they had a little dj/concert thingy. We didn’t stay too long for that, but it was kind of awesome.
I thought of a really awesome thing that made me want to start doing races with my boyfriend. Luckily when I told him about it he thought it was a really good idea.
