I never did my update for My Life Run last week because it sucked. I was so busy and I didn’t take the time to run. This week Fiona changed my routine a bit with running and I just had an AWESOME run. According to my Nike+, I ran 2.46 miles in 30 minutes and 48 seconds at an average pace of 12.5 min/mile. I burned 258 calories. An AWESOME run because I got past a mental block.
My problem was in my head. I would run/walk because I didn’t “think” I could run for long periods of time. So, I was given strict orders to NOT walk anymore. Run. So I ran. And today I did a 3-minute warm-up, ran for 25 minutes straight and then a 5-minute cooldown. It wasn’t hard either. The 25 minutes was easy. It shocked me. I could have run longer, but I had to get home so my daughter could go babysit for a neighbor.
