Week 8

Last week was awesome!! I went to the gym 6 days and feel great. Monday and Wednesday mornings I used the elliptical and did strength trainging, Tuesday and Thursday nights I ran 30 minutes each, Sunday I used the stationary bike for 40 minutes and Saturday I did my long run- 5 miles!! It took me 65 minutes to finish and I ran the entire time. It feels great being able to run for an hour no matter the pace. I am definitely getting excited for my 10K. I have more experience this time so I'm really hoping I can beat my previous time which is 1:06:45 (10:45 min/mile). I went to the gym already today- ran for 25 minutes and did strength training. My runs are finally getting a little easier and I'm able to go a little faster. This Sunday I plan on running 6 miles and then next week 7. Woah!! I don't think I'll do more than 7 before the race. I'll continue to run afterwards though and hopefully I'll run a 10-miler later in the year. I'm enjoying running again and it's awesome!!

Congrats on your running! I haven't gotten back into it since baby #2. I'm a little intimidated again. Anyway, thanks for reading my blog!
