So, I had to take a little time to re-group emotionally. And I'm getting there.
As far as running goes, so far so good! I completed my first 10 mile training run yesterday. Yes, I said 10 miles!!! And then today, I was scheduled for a 5 mile pace run (9 minute mile), and I did it! I was super excited and amazed that I was able to do that.
My 10 mile race is next Sunday. I have a timed goal in my head. I always have a timed goal. :) But if I honestly don't reach that goal, or if the race just doesn't feel like I'm in the groove, I'm planning to slow it down and run it as a fun run / training run. I have several Half Marathons on my schedule for this year.
But regardless of the outcome of the race next weekend, I am totally seeing progress.. and I'm super pleased about that!
Last week, I was able to get a run on the beach. (My first run ever on the beach). It was beautiful!
