got up this morning and went for my run first thing. it was a humid morning, but i met my goal. i wanted to do 5 repetitions of walk 3/run 2. i also wanted to get my pace under 13 minute mile. i was able to do both. i did the 25 minutes and did just over 2 miles. my pace was 11.57 minutes/mile. the beginning was tough, but once i got through the first cycle, i was a bit looser and it was good. the air being so humid made it a bit harder, but i finished!
today was the first time i tried running before i had eaten breakfast....not sure if it made it harder, but i am thinking i will be sure to eat before i run..at least have a fruit smoothie. i definitely need some new shoes...but that may have to wait a few weeks... i would love some suggestions from anyone on good running shoes for when i do go buy them.
tomorrow will be a cross-train day. i am probably going to do some cycling and maybe some yoga again.
