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!
