I finally got off the excuses bus and ran!
When I got home today, the temperature wasn't horrible (25 w/ wind chill of 15) so I decided to suck it up and go for it. Besides, Bentley was jumping in circles and whining and totally creeping me out. He was going stir crazy being cooped up in the house because of the cold!
Ok, so, the run. I am now following the 10K plan from the Beginning Runner's Handbook. I will be using this blog as a training log. I have no 10K in my plans, I just want to be able to run that distance before I start training for my half.
BRH: Week 1 Session 1
Run 1 minute, walk 2 minutes. Repeat 12 times.
Distance: 3.01 miles
Felt great! The body was a little sore because I hadn't used those muscles in a long time. Hopefully I can keep my New Year's goal of running 2-3 times a week. The actual temp is supposed to be in the 20's this week (w/ windchill it won't feel like it). I don't have any evening plans except for Wednesday, so I should be able to do this again :) Yay!
So glad I got back out there!
