The Run for the Cure is quickly approaching! I can’t believe how fast time has passed. I said I would buckle down and train for it in July, and as I uttered those words to a friend of mine, I realized it was the end of August! Yikes.
I have no concerns about completing 10K, but I know at this point I will not be running the whole thing. And that’s fine. This is all about the experience, not the “numbers”. I still can’t believe $1050 has been raised so far, so amazing!
Today I set out for my first real “back in the saddle” run. It was pretty sad and pathetic, but I did it. I did a 5:1 ratio and ran for approximately 3km. My legs were ultra stiff because of my bike commuting and ChaLEAN. :) My goal is simple, Tues/Thurs/Sat runs. I want to build myself up to 10:1, 10k. Totally doable!
Plus, I have the best running buddy a girl can ask for. My really good friend is a runner, and I mean RUNNER. She has done Boston, along with other marathons… and just recently placed 1st in her division (women 20-29) at the Edmonton Marathon. Wowza. She’s taking it easy for the next month or so and it fits perfectly in her periodization to run with me, the newbie! :)
No food in this post, but I do have some interesting meals to report soon. Promise.
