My first run outside in a long time! I ran for 20 min 35 seconds and I covered 1.5 miles. That is a pace of 13:43! Yes, I know that is slow, but I thought that I was running 15 min miles. So any improvement over that is very exciting! I started out slower than I wanted to, but I am glad that I did because I really had to push at the end. It was just a little bit foggy this morning, but that made it nice and cool. I can't believe that it is August!
Also this week I rode my bike once and ran at the gym. While I was at the gym they had Olympic Kayacking on one of the TVs. I really enjoyed watching it. And it motivated me because it reminded me of all the things I want to be able to be fit enough to do. I want to be able to kayack, surf, and do whatever I want to do without my lack of physical ability holding me back.
I am feeling very strong right now and I am fully confident that I will be in shape in time for that 5K race!
