My Running Challenge: Day 4

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I was exhausted yesterday after class from traveling all weekend so I took the day off from running but I was back at it today.  I think I did well considering I hadn't run in four days.  While there was a lot of eating this past weekend there was also a lot of walking which I think helped me. I forgot to stretch before going out so I was a little nervous about that but it didn't really seem to be a problem today.

I also was going to try a slightly longer route and then ended up missing my bridge which just extended it even more.

Route for the afternoon
I've been looking up a few races in the Dublin area.  The blog-pressure is doing a good job of keeping me running but I think doing a race will give me a little more motivation.  I think I'll start with a 5k and see how I do with that before I think about anything else.  There's one at the beginning of July that will be just a few blocks from my apartment.   Anyone want to join?

Tomorrow will be the first day I cycle to class and try to run in the same day but I've already got my run mapped out and, as of right now, I'm looking forward to it!

  2. Thanks Kayla! Blogging about it really helps with the motivation. Plus I've wanted to write more lately so it's killing two birds with one stone!
