June 19th training run

G is back home from his dad’s house so what did we do? We went for our daily run.  Today was week 10 day 3 of the couch to 10K program.  We bested ourselves with 5.58 miles in 58:16.

After today we are both looking forward to 5K day tomorrow.  I just hope that I can make it lol.

My first 10k race is in 33 days and I am starting to get super nervous.  As of right now I am not ready but I hope to be soon.

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 2nd and 3rd training runs

I didn’t get the chance to blog yesterday so I am doing a 2 in 1 today.  First up is yesterdays run.

It was a big mistake to try and run in this heat.

G, K, and I all set out to run the 30 minutes that was scheduled.  K quit first at less than 1/4 mile.  G made it to 1 1/4 miles or so.  I made it to 2 miles before I had to add in some walking.  I did do 3.53 miles in 40:10 so it was an ok run for being 90° F out.

Today we woke up early to try and get our run in before it got too hot out.

It was still warm but I did it anyway.

I made the 3.15 miles in 30:28 and made it with no walking.  G quit at around 1.5 miles and K didn’t want to come with.  We also forgot our selfie because we were in a rush to get home so we could go on our hiking trip.

I like to go hiking and D has a thing for waterfalls so that is what we normally go to see.

We did catch some cute Harry Potter Dobby graffiti so that was fun.  Someone is a good painter in that town.

Oh and I got a new toy today.

D and I bought each other tablets for our anniversary this month.  We have both been wanting one for a while and finally decided to just buy them.

May 29th training run

G is still not home yet so I am running on my own.  It was rainy today but with the gym closed due to the holiday I was stuck running in it.

So I ran my intervals of run 1.25 miles; walk .25 miles, run 1 mile for 6.25 miles.  I did worse than I did last week when I did this run but I still did it in 1:08:56 and I did it even with the rain.

Tomorrow G and I will be back at running together.
