As you might have picked up from some of my recent posts, my confidence in my running was wavering. I really needed a distance run that I could feel good about. Today, I did that! FINALLY!
After doing a bunch of housework, laundry and grocery shopping, I made the decision to go to my inlaws (a big thank you to them for allowing me to use their treadmill whenever I need to) and run on the treadmill. I told myself 6...I need to get to 6 miles. So I got situated, got the extra mile podcast going on the ipod and I began. I felt great! I actually couldn't believe how good I felt today while running. It had been a long time since I felt that good. I wanted to take it slow and just worry about the distance, not the time. 12:00/mile is where I wanted to be and I came in just under that. I ran 6 in 1:11:15. It really was a good run. So happy! :)
This was my first time working out to a podcast. I really enjoyed it. I found the time went by really quickly because I was listening to the interview with Jeff Galloway, the advice and everything else. I think I'm going to download the next one for my next long run. I ran longer than the podcast, but it was a good 45 minutes long. My music kicked in after that! This run was just what I needed. Yep...it was a good day! Tomorrow will be even better though because my little guy turns 5!
