June 16th training run

Both boys came with on the run today.  K made the whole thing and G made it most of the way.  We made it out 5K or 3.15 miles in 30:20.

We tried a different pic today.  You can tell that I have 396 miles on my shoes and they need to be replaced very soon.  I have actually already bought my new shoes and am super excited to wear them.

The boys are with their dad this weekend so I am not going to work on the couch to 10K program without them but I do plan to do some intervals and possibly a 4 mile run.

June 15th training run

K spent the day with Nana celebrating her birthday so it was just G and I on our run today.

We tried to take on week 10 day 2 of the couch to 10 K program again today.  We made it this time!!!  Yup that’s right 5.35 miles in 58:25.  I think that our bodies are starting to get used to this heat and humidity.

After our run and showers we headed to Mama’s birthday party.  She set up the pool for us to cool off in which was awesome.

I won’t post a pic of myself in swim wear so you will just have to settle for a pic of just Z in the pool to see how good it felt.

I discovered a new app for Iphone and android users that lets you earn “coins” to buy prizes just for walking or running outside.  Here is the link if you were interested.

June 14th training run

Today was another hot and sticky day.

After 8 hours outside at work I came home to take my boys on a 5k run.

G made it this time.  I am so proud of him and his running efforts.  We went 3.15 miles in 30:27.  Unfortunately as the temp goes up so do our times.

Tomorrow we hope to do a retry of our couch to 10K week 10 day 2.  Hopefully we can pull it off this time.

June 13th training run

Today feels like it is 400° out.  In all actuality it is only 84°F out but super humid.  The boys and I attempted our run anyway.  I say attempted because none if succeeded at making the full week 10 day 2 run from our couch to 10 K program.

The run was supposed to be a 5 minute warm up walk followed by 3 15 minute run 1 minute walk intervals and ending with a 5 minute walk.  

G made it 5 minutes onto the first run and gave up and sat in the shade and waited for me to finish.  

K made it 10 minutes into the first run then started doing his own run walk plan.  

As for me I made it to run 3 but for that one I ran 50 seconds and walked 10 seconds for the 16 minutes.  I ended up doing 5.32 miles in 58:16. 

None of us were happy with our run and it shows on all of our faces.  Tomorrow is another day to try again.

June 12th training run 

We got a late start to our run today as in it was 8pm by the time we started.  Both boys started with me but I was the only one who went the distance.

I went for 3.15 miles in 29:37.  I was a little slower than normal but not bad for so late and after a big dinner.

Tomorrow is week 10 day 2 of our couch to 10K trainer.  I wonder if any of us will make it?

June 11th training run

The boys and I set out to do week 10 day 1 of our couch to 10K training program.  The good news is that I made it the bad news is that neither boy did.

Today was walk 5 minutes, then do 15 minute run 1 minute walk 3 times and end with a 5 minute walk.  Both boys quit at around half way.

I finished with a total of 5.36 miles in 58:17 so I am still making progress towards being able to do a 10k.

Tomorrow we are just going to go for a 5k or so run.  I am still proud at how far both boys have come with their running.

Stop the Trafficking 5k

Today I ran the Stop the Trafficking 5k.

It was a warm one even before the race started.

But, I ran anyway.

I finished the 5k with a chip time of 28:02.  Not my best but in 80°F heat I am super happy with my time.

Today at the park by our house is the city wide campout.  We weren’t interested in camping but did wander down to play for a bit.

Due to it being so warm the fire department cooled down the kids for a bit.  G and Z had a blast playing in the fire hose sprinkler.

So my next race will be a 1k fun run but after that is my first 10k which I am super excited for.

June 9th training run

Today is my little sister’s 34th birthday so I did my duty and texted her to wish her a happy birthday lol.

Both boys came with me on my run again today.  I only did 1.57 miles because I want to be in top form for my 5k race tomorrow.  We did do our 1.57 miles in 15:07 so not too bad.

I doubt that I will get a personal best at my race tomorrow but I do hope I get it done in less than 30 minutes.

Today was 4°F cooler than yesterday but still a hot day to be out running.

Today was week 9 day 3 of our Couch to 10K training.  G and I got K to come with us and he mad the full run as well.  We made it 5.06 miles in 54:19.  We made it 0.01 miles farther than the last time we did our program run.

After our run and showers D and I took the kids out to dinner to celebrate today being the last day of school.

June 7th training run

Today was World Running Day and in celebration G and I went for a run.  When we set out it was hot.

When we set out we were thinking run 0.25 miles and walk 0.25 miles for the 5k.  After the first 0.25 miles we were feeling good so we kept going and it ended up just straight running the 5k.  We ran our 5K in 30:58 so we are happy with our time as well.
