I was sooo excited for my run today since I bought my new shoes on Saturday and couldn't wait to try them out. I geared myself up and stretched since I'm still sore from yesterday's Jillian Michaels DVD kick butt workout.
I have no clue what I'm looking at (me pretending to run)
I ran the route that I thought was 3.1 miles and it actually turned out to be 3.25 miles in 31:41!! I started my watch when I left the driveway and told myself since this was the first time attempting to run 3 miles straight for the first time since the first week of January so I told myself I would not look at my watch since I did not care about time I just wanted to get through the whole workout without stopping to walk. I also actually got to run 2 larger hills for the first time since during my injury since that was a no-no on my progression runs back.
I really like the Brooks Pure Flow shoes and they felt great. I was nervous since I need wide width shoes and they didn't come in wides. But when I tried them on in the shoe store they fit great and I didn't have any issues with them on the run which is great and I can't wait to do more runs in these. I don't think I will go back!!
I think I may sign up for a 5K next weekend so I can get a new PR since today I'm on pace to beat my PR by about 2 minutes!! Can't believe that in just 1 year I improved that much. I realize this is only my 5th year running but I really can't wait to see how fast I will eventually get. There is still 10 lbs to lose off my frame and muscle to gain. Looking forward to a great 2012 season.
