3 Miles

I woke up this morning to go for a run with a friend.  We took off on a 3 mile excursion this morning and decided at the mile and a half point to go the harder way...the way with hills.  I could really tell about mile 2.5 that the stairs are helping with my running.  I was able to climb the hills better than I ever could in the past. 

This was one of my greatest times to date.  We finished the run in 38 minutes.  I'm still determined to get 3 miles in under 30 minutes.  I know it will take some time but I will get there one day. 

I enjoyed a way to big breakfast after my run because I didn't get a chance to eat before hand.  I almost always eat before a workout but today when I woke up I went to get my clothes out of the dryer and they were still wet.  I had to be out the door in 10 minutes and I got so worked up about the clothes that I didn't fix my breakfast.

So now I'm just sitting on the couch recovering after my run.


This is how I like to recover.  2 packs of frozen peas...it helps with sore joints and also cools my body down.  It looks kinda funny.  When people. look in my freezer they probably think I really like peas but I don't.  I actually never eat them, I only use them as ice packs.

I have one more workout planned for tonight, more weights and less cardio.  Then a real recovery, sleep.

One more day till the 30 in 30 weigh in.  My weight has been up all week but today I was at a more reasonable weight.  I think I have been holding water.  Good luck girls, I hope everyone has good numbers this time.
