Hello 2.1 miles!

Todays Run:

Time: 28min

Distance: 2.1 miles

Outdoor/Treadmill: Indoor Track

Hello 2.1 miles! I got you! Today’s run was AMAZZZING! I set my Nike+ App for distance instead of time to see how long it really takes me to get to 2 miles, since that’s where I was having trouble lately. If I was going to go further than ever before, I needed a totally flat surface and now worry about hills or inclines, so the indoor track it was.

I set my Ipod on and just went. Usually I let my mind get the best of me and about a mile in I lose focus, stop for a sec, check my hair or sneakers and think I need to walk when I knwo my body can handle so much more. So this time I blasted my music and just ran. I went around and around on that track. I didn’t count anything or worry about anyone which usually distracts me too. I was focused and centered and it felt amazing!

My next goal is to run the same distance but outside to see how much of a difference that makes. I know that it takes me about 28 minutes to run a little over 2 miles, averaging about 13-14min/mile. I may increase my duration because that’s my goal overall. If I want to run a 5k, it would take me about 40 minutes to complete at my current pace, which honestly is scaring the daylights out of me!

Thinking about a 40 minute non-stop workout is frightening. Doable, but scary.

So that was today’s run. I feel good but know I still have a road ahead of me. I am open to all and any advice!

    Way to go! I’m a slow runner – did couch to 5K. it simply feels great to run. I think about increasing speed, but for now my goal is just to run. A year ago I did my first 5K. It was a great accomplishment! If you think too much – you psych yourself out. Take it in small steps. That was the beauty of couch to 5k – although it trains you to run 30″ and since I was slow I didn’t realize that I wasn’t running a 5K until a few weeks before my “race.” I stepped up and pushed myself, though and made it! You can do it!
