I did it again! I went running! Workout 2.2 complete.
Again, I brought Bently and he was great! The retractable leash was the key. He even responded to the "let's run" and "slow down" commands. Yay! I might have my running buddy back.
Ok....the run. It was another run for 1:30 then walk for 3:00. My shins are still killing me. About 25 minutes in to my 30 minute run, they finally went numb and I felt like I could have kept running. Next week I will run for a longer periods and hopefully my shins will numb up sooner!
I'm struggling with wanting to buy hundreds of dollars worth of running gear. I feel that if I want to take running seriously I need to buy new shoes, new tights, and warm weather gear. Well...I did go to Target and by some Compression shirts and a pair of running gloves. I felt like if, for some reason, I didn't follow through with my running plans, I wouldn't feel so bad because they weren't that expensive. I did stop myself from buying the cold-run tights and a new fleece because I still have a pair of tights from high school track and a fleece outfit from Old Navy when they came out with their "Polar Fleece" a couple of years ago (once again, I was in high school). Amazing it all still fits! I did ask for these things for Christmas though :) Maybe I will make it through the winter after all. Any advice on what else I should buy? I live in Northern Illinois, so it gets really cold in December and lasts through March.
