So many updates.

So I am running a lot, but writing very little. The amazing thing is I’ve managed to stay pain free. I’m trying to learn as much about running as I can to be able to train effectively.

Tonight we are meeting with a local running coach to learn some speed drills on a track. How awesome is that? I’m so glad I’m doing it now when I don’t feel like a complete beginner because at least I feel like I’ll survive the drills.

Over the last week, I feel like I’ve seen massive improvement in both my times and endurance. Now basically all my runs are 3 miles. I remember the days when 1 mile seemed crazy, lol.

One day I had to run on the treadmill and I was able to run 3 miles without stopping. My husband told me not to get too excited because running on the treadmill is easier lol. Always keeping me grounded.

I’m doing the Galloway method and feel like I’m having success. My last 2 runs have been running 2:30 walking 1 minute. I’m looking forward to increasing to 3:1.

You can see in my last 2 runs, a big improvement running the same 2:30:1.

I’ll have another post from the speed drills tonight and another post coming soon about some gear I’ve recently bought.

1/2 way to Disney & 4 Miles!

Run Disney

I am SUPER excited to share that I’ve reached the halfway point in my fundraising for Children’s Miracle Network and we’re now working on my husband’s fundraiser so he can run the princess Half Marathon and 10K (Glass Slipper Challenge) with me! Hotel room is BOOKED, budget is set, Here We Come!!

I’ve been running the Galloway method for this upcoming training 3 times a week, and have had some really awesome runs. I’m not cutting any corners because we actually want to survive running 19 miles that weekend! I am feeling so strong and loving my runs. I’ve found that I run best to Katy Perry and less fast to audio books, but I still like changing it up and doing a little of both.

Are you on Garmin Connect or Nike Plus? Add me as a friend and let’s challenge and encourage each other!

I’m here on Garmin: Lisette

I am still not running a super fast pace, but it’s not super slow either. Ok… Not sure who I’m kidding, it is pretty slow, but I’m getting stronger and able to run the same pace on a more consistent basis, so I’m ready to speed up the turnover a little! Looking forward to tomorrow’s run since the Galloway program only includes 3 runs a week. I may increase that to 4 on my own, and incorporate more cross training. My back really starts to get sore after the longer runs so I want to strengthen my core to feel more comfortable over a longer distance.

Those are my thoughts for now! Can’t wait till my next run!
