I went to A Snails Pace Running Store and got fitted for the proper shoes so I could at least look like a runner!
My new favorite thing is my Nike+gps app for my iPhone....I start that puppy every time I go out and play my boys....and off I go :)
I get cheers from my friends along the way and I can get instant updates when I'm done. Although I'm still working on bettering my pace, I'm definitely putting in the mileage. I'm excited to hit 100 miles!!
|Almost 72 miles in 19 runs!|
My one concern is my left calf! It hurts, oh boy does it hurt, but only when I'm running which tells me I have not injured it! Phewwww! It takes about a mile to get warmed up and then it is better but not great. I started with my Physique 57 workouts again tonight. My favorite instructor ;) told me that doing my P57 workouts in between my runs will certainly help with my pain and keep me stretched and strong. I trust my favorite instructor!!
I've set a pretty lofty (that's my favorite new word) goal for myself. I'm determined to make it happen. When I turn 54 years old on October 7, 2012, I will be doing this....well the 1/2 Marathon!!
Oh and I have another goal for that day....I will be wearing LuLu Lemon when I run!
So until next time my fellow runners and Physiquesians....
Oh and PS: I'm am heading to see my Jersey Girl, SIL and GrandPuppy in 11 days!!
I cannot wait.
