My running mojo has finally returned!
wow that sounds pretty lame doesn’t it 😉
As I’ve mentioned over the past few weeks, slacked a lot in the running department this summer due to the extremely hot and humid conditions we encountered basically for the entire months of June and July. This month, I started getting back into it again and now only the 2nd week into my Terry Fox training plan, I finally feel like I’m just about back to where I was condition wise this past spring.
Today felt much like a fall day – and boy do I ever love the fall. It was a cool 20 degrees and completely cloudy. (photo taken from my patio door, looking to the back yard)
I actually bought two new running shirts at Old Navy this weekend. Total score! This one was only $4.99 and the other one was only $5.99! 🙂
My run was FANTASTIC! I felt a little pain in my shins at the start of the run, but I pushed through and am glad I did. After the first 10 minutes or so, I felt great and got into such a good grove. I ran longer than I had originally planned and covered 4.83km which is 3 miles on the dot! I was hoping to get 5K done but underestimated the distance just a bit. (oh how I wish I owned a Garmin!) I am so glad my condition and finesse has improved so quickly and that I’m already pretty much able to do 5K easily again. This makes me feel so great because after a few more steady 5K runs, I’ll be able to start speed training with plenty of time before the Terry Fox run! I really want to finish with a sub-30min time.
Dinner tonight was Turkey Enchilada’s Remixed.
I love that I managed to use up a lot of partials that we had in the fridge/freezer. I finished off the Ancient Grains tortillas, the enchilada mix that I had made last week, and sauce that I had made Friday.
We’re now just going to cuddle up and start working on getting caught up with So You Think You Can Dance CANADA!!! 🙂 It’s sooooo good so far!!
